Talk Description

Most teams in the data world start as a 1-person army. Extraction, Transformation & Modeling, Analysis & Dashboarding; they can do it all! The flip side of the coin 🪙 - they must do it all.Hiring for this type of role can be exceedingly difficult because there is no one-size-fits-all solution. This also doesn't tackle the issue that most data practitioners are so swamped by their day-to-day operations that they do not have a clear vision of their global purpose within the company.Crafting a job description isn't a mere formality; it's the cornerstone of building a high-performing data team. This presentation offers a detailed roadmap to navigate the complexities of writing a compelling job description tailored to data practitioners. We'll also dive into the ideal data practitioner profile by identifying the key characteristics which are necessary to shine in the practice.
