From week to week you’ll work on varying initiatives and programs to share the innovations of the team and the importance of the work being done both across the team and with the entire company.

You will also help with explaining our work through video and animation and co-lead our successful Data Science Academy which is a portal to learning all things data science for New York Life employees.
