Danny Vilela
Data Scientist

"At Applecart, no two problems are the same. As data scientists, this means we take inspiration from cutting-edge research, prototype minimum viable solutions, and design custom implementations that are performant at scale. Our culture is incredibly collaborative and strongly encourages growth, so we’re always trading ideas with and receiving constructive criticism from other data scientists and engineers."

"At Applecart, I get to work every day right at the intersection of data engineering and data science: architecting and coding scalable data pipelines while making dozens of data-driven decisions around data schemas, feature engineering, entity resolution and more. Coming from Google, I appreciate the dynamic, fast-paced startup culture and the high level of autonomy & ownership I have over my work."
