Data science roles
Several firms pioneering the use of alternative data in fundamental investing have engaged us to help build out their data science teams. At present these include:

- Global fund focused on Asia, with over $5bn in AUM looking to establish a data science team.

Our partners' data science teams typically have two core work-streams:
- Engineering involves the build-out of ETL pipelines to Extract, Transform, and Load data from various sources. Such sources usually include public repositories, data vendors, as well as proprietary scrapers.
- Analysis involves the use of various statistical methods to identify noteworthy relationships. For example, you might find that a particular publicly accessible time series is highly correlated with a publicly traded company's revenues.
Whil there are opportunities for specialists in either area, the most sought-after candidates usually have some background in both engineering and analysis
