Jonathan Leslie
Head of Data Science, Pivigo


My work involves a combination of consultancy and hands-on work. As a consultant, I work with business partners to develop data science solutions that make the most of their data, including in-depth analysis of existing data and predictive analytics for future business needs. My hands-on work includes programming, mentoring and managing teams of data scientists on projects in a wide variety of business domains.
