I heard about a new skill yesterday – that of the data translator. Essentially from what I could determine the data translator sits in between a data scientist and a business person to interpret the data requirements for that business area and ensuring the data scientist understands those requirements and is able to provide the data in a way that the business person can interpret and make sense from.
The data translator skill-set seems to be one in nascent demand. I could only see a tiny handful of roles requiring that skill-set, for example, on Jobserve. As I mentioned the other day, I feel like I am in the right place at the right time regarding this new wave of demand for skills in the data arena.
As a serial contractor, I’ve always taken it seriously to keep my skills up to date and to add the maximum value in the role I’ve been in at the time. I am very much looking forward to understanding more about how I can embrace these changes in the industry.
Thanks for reading, bear with me whilst I focus on my work for a while and I’m sure I’ll get back to more personal topics in due course.
