Eleanor Mitchell, Data Analyst
What is your role at effini?

“I’m a Data Analyst. I work with clients to understand the challenges and goals in their business and work to create solutions using their data that can best tackle these issues.”

How did you get into data?

“Information Science is where I first started. I did a PHD and Masters in it at the University of Sheffield. From there, I worked as Customer Support Analyst with my work taking me to London, Cambridge and even California for a while. After that, I worked for the Intermediary Technology Institute in Dundee, before switching to Scottish Enterprise. I was at the organisation for 15 years, where we worked to commercialise technology in business like start-ups. Deciding that I wanted to move into something a little different, I did a Masters in Artificial Intelligence and Applications at the University of Strathclyde, where I studied topics like Machine Learning and Python. Not long after I graduated, I joined effini.”

What is your favourite part of your job?

“My favourite part is engaging with clients. From exploring new areas, to getting to the heart of what the customer really wants, this is the part I find very interesting.”

When you’re not working, what do you enjoy doing?

“I’m trying to stay fit by cycling into work and I’ve run two 10k races this year. I sing in a choir and I’ve several creative projects on the go, such as the felt elephant I recently created for our brand competition.”
