A data scientist's job is all about details, but a data scientist's career path is much more ambiguous. When you're working in a hot, brand new field, the traditional career ladder just doesn't apply.

So how do you succeed when there is no clear path for success? How can you be amazing at your job when "amazing" is still being defined? It starts with knowing exactly why your job is so different from others (there are no right answers), and learning how to explain your complicated work in an uncomplicated way.

In this talk, you'll learn how to achieve success by leveraging your unique role to create the career you really want.
