When you work in any organization, there are many opportunities to get the word out. When you have one of your star employees in the news, you have to show it off! Our friends at Built-In Chicago put together a story on “the best way data professionals can scale their teams” and among the experts they interviewed was our own Matt Pollack, senior vice president of strategy and analytics.
What Say You?
Built-in Chicago: When it comes to scaling your data team, what are the most important hiring considerations and why?
Matt Pollack: Under pressure to scale up quickly, there’s a temptation to relax standards in order to get candidates through the pipeline faster. But that’s a short-term tradeoff that can result in long-term headaches due to hires that turn out to be bad fits for the team.
We’re committed to remaining rigorous in our recruitment process. For our analytics team, data analysis is coupled to strategy. How can our analyses produce meaningful insights that help attain our company goals? When recruiting, we look for individuals that have a track record of using data to drive impactful results. Top-notch data and SQL skills are a must, but individuals who thrive on our team are also strategic thinkers.
