“When I first learned about data analytics, my initial career goal was to become a data scientist. Having gained a more in-depth understanding of the industry during my time in The Data Lab Academy, I switched to data engineering. I’d urge anyone planning to work in data to consider which of the various career paths in the industry are right for them.”Tommaso Ricci – Data Engineer at Innovid
