“As a data scientist, I helped identify the right stores for a new product launch in Japan.”
I joined P&G as a Senior Data Scientist a year ago. Prior to joining, I had the preconceived notion that P&G was a prestigious FMCG company with limited emphasis on technology. It's safe to say I was wrong – I was deeply surprised by the tremendous investment in technology and innovation here, with a Data & Analytics team to boot.
My first data science project placed me in charge of identifying the right stores for a new product launch in Japan, where I also got to work closely with the US and European teams to improve the solution using machine learning algorithms. The level of dedication towards the business implementation only strengthened my belief about the meaningful work we did (and continue to do) here. I’m constantly encouraged by the knowledge and enthusiasm for data science, and have really enjoyed working with such a like-minded community!
