+ Who is a Data Scientist
1 lecture 09:27

A Data Scientist used to be a scientific researcher who combines statistical methods and software development expertise in order to create, analyse, and interpret data. But now you can be a Data Scientist at a company, crunching data, trying to understand practical implications of real-world commercial data.

A Data Scientist is one of the most sought after jobs in the industry right now, and it comes with a lot of perks. You can earn anywhere between $120,000-$180,000 per year.

The most basic job of a Data Scientist is to create data and then use software to analyze the data.

1 lecture 08:58

Data Scientists are in high demand, so you’ll need to have a well-rounded skill set if you’re interested in this type of job. For a start, to become an intern or a junior data scientist you will only have to know:

  • how to implement basic data structures in Python

  • communicate and visualize your results well.

In general you will need both technical (Python, SQL, problem solving, statistics) and soft skills (communication, visualisation).
