An Insider's view of Cognite

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

I am amazed at the level of commitment Cognite has to its employees. I’ve never worked with a company before that placed such a focus on inclusiveness and diversity, not to mention the tremendous effort spent encouraging open communication between employees, managers, and the executive team.



What does your typical day look like?

Being a data scientist in industry solutions, my objective is to demonstrate to customers how we can create value using our product, Cognite Data Fusion. Typically, I spend most of my time developing models. This can include machine learning models, physics models, or a hybrid of both.


Senior Data Scientist

What makes someone successful on your team?

We look for individuals who enjoy both -- 1) strategic (building) and 2) execution (doing).
