Thinking about building a data function in your scale-up? To become a data-driven business you need data focussed individuals. You don’t necessarily need a data team at the outset and you’re unlikely to have the resources to be able to do so. But as you grow, developing a team focussed on data will fast track your growth, providing the rest of the business with actionable insight. Before starting the hiring process you need to understand the difference between data professionals, to identify which position would be the best fit for your scale-up. Do you want to hire a Data Analyst, Engineer or Scientist? Do you need all three, or just one? What does the hiring process look like?
