What can you expect?
Work with the Latest Technologies

You will also get a chance to work on some of the latest technologies in the data science field including the Azure Cloud and Advanced Analytics Platform, Spark via Databricks, Azure Cognitive Services, and Tableau / PowerBI.
Utilization of your Data Science Skill Sets
You should be experienced developing algorithms, mathematical models and cognitive capabilities that interact with other software and analytical components that run autonomously with minimal human supervision.
