The Best Data Scientists Know How to Tell Stories

By Fouad Bendris

When hiring data scientists, people tend to focus primarily on technical qualifications. It’s hard to find candidates who have the right mix of computational and statistical skills. But what’s even harder is finding people who have those skills and are good at communicating the story behind the data.

Here are three attributes our partners look for in data scientists, and specific questions they use to identify those attributes:

– Ability to articulate the business value of their work

– The right level of technical detail

– Getting visualizations right
