Interview Assessment Notes

  1. Joined XXXX in the ESG department, responsible for making sense of ESG data sets. Before he joined the company, ESG data was very basic- primarily just screenshots of charts, and not very interactive. Very dull and not very inspiring. He worked with tools, Python and ETL to make analytics and more user-friendly applications, enabling different combinations to show the user what what was really going on with new visuals such as heatmaps.
  2. Able to also enhance the products which ended being launched internally and externally. For example, internally a researched based geo-spacial analysis was released for ESG trends overall, such as using supply chain data to show if a company was importing and exporting too much corn, and presented in a visually interesting way.
  3. Is quite hands-on individual role, with no direct team. Indirectly, is managaing different stakeholders internally such as Fitch Managing Directors, and also running scrums for projects with other team members reporting to him.
  4. Previously at S&P, with working in Scrum projects as the data expert, working in different domains but especially Banking, Insurance, ESG, Corporates.
  5. Has used NLP a little in his current job, such as extracting data from an Oil Gas company and putting them into the correct metrics.
  6. Didn’t use AI as much in the recent jobs. But did use recently in during his Masters in 2019, in XXXX methods and Bayesian Approach to Statistical Inference.
