Dr George

Data Scientist

1 yr 2 mths

I have only been at Summit a short time, but I’ve already been immersed in a range of insight projects, from proposal to completion, and learnt a great deal about the world of online retail.

What were you doing before you joined?

PhD in Statistics and Operational Research at STOR-i, Lancaster University

What made you want to apply for the job at Summit?

I was looking for an industry role that could provide me with the best combination of experience and reward, whilst working for a company that is growing and with room for me to grow with them. Summit ticked all the boxes.

What advice would you give for people who aspire to be where you are?

Be aware of the life skills that are necessary for the industry, it's not all about you when you're part of a larger organisation.

What's your favourite thing about working here?

The freedom and encouragement to suggest and explore new and innovative research methods.

Proudest moment at Summit?

My first client meeting.

Worst moment at Summit?

I'll let you know when it happens...

What reasons would you give other people for joining?

The opportunity to solve real world problems, with the room to grow your own skills… and Hull Pie staff lunches.
