Working at Social Point

Sandra, Analytics

I extract and analyze data to obtain the kind of information that helps the company take fast and effective decisions. I chose Social Point because it was an awesome opportunity to work in Big Data in a young, innovative company with heaps of growth potential. What I love most about my job is the people. I work with great teams, and I learn a lot from them. My role means I am in touch with lots of different areas of the business.
