My Work Experience

Where I've interned and worked during my career.

Datasparq | Jul 2023 - Sep 2023

Data Science Intern

Developed a working knowledge of the data science pipeline (e.g. ETL) when building a PlayML page to show how machine learning can be used for predictive maintenance in a variety of settings. Gained a thorough understanding of Python while developing an internal tool for standardising graphics (e.g. graphs) used in client-facing demos and product pitches. Demonstrated understanding the needs of the wider team when providing a written practical guide on giving feedback (e.g. to stakeholders or internally) from personal experience in previous employment.

Teaching Assistant

Developed better communication skills (e.g. communicating technical insights efficiently) while tutoring and supporting students on the Data Science and Data Analytics bootcamps. Learned effective ways of debugging code and solving problems alongside students and ensuring they understand concepts well enough to succeed. Integrated onto the Le Wagon team easily by contributing positively towards their work culture and frameworks (e.g. teamwork, arriving on time, etc.).

GemstoneIT | Mar 2023 - Apr 2023

PowerBI Consultant

Developed key analysis skills by learning the data structures and platforms used (e.g. Azure, Jira, etc.). Became proficient in using Power BI by doing online courses and putting learnings into practice by developing and deploying internal Power BI dashboards for visualising staff and resource distribution. Demonstrated effective time management by developing and deploying the Power BI dashboards ahead of schedule.

About Me

Nico Marais

I completed a Data Science bootcamp with Le Wagon London in 2022 and am currently looking for a work in the Data World. I signed up for Datacamp because the content is great and I find this a helpful way to keep sharp on the coding side of things.
