Interviewer Notes

This candidate gave clear, well-developed answers to all of my questions on data science concepts – demonstrating a strong understanding of the application of these techniques as well as the math behind them. On several points, he was able to go a little deeper than candidates usually do during my interviews. For example, he discussed his exploration of a new application for Support Vector Machines – training them with time series data as a tool for predicting truck engine failure. Likewise, our discussion about regression models led to an interesting digression on the concept of slope in a multidimensional space. I also appreciated this candidate’s breadth of experience over a wide range of industries.
