What we define as “Relevant Work Experience”: Candidate needs to have hands-on, “expert” level experience in building sophisticated predictive models. This needs to have been one of their primary job responsibilities, so that they should have done it multiple times. They should also have done this with large datasets (millions of rows) and in situations where they had to evaluate different scorecards, had to conduct variable reduction, etc. We have a strong preference for candidates who have done the above in the financial services sector (banks, credit cards, lending firms). This preference becomes stronger as years of experience increases We are not interested in candidates who have done predictive modeling only through coursework (whether on campus or via online methods) We are also not interested in candidates who haven’t developed models themselves, but are users/reviewers of predictive models We are not interested in candidates whose primary exposure to Analytics is limited to BI/Dashboarding/Visualization
