Projects engaged by the QWO team can be complex, data intensive, and of a high level of difficulty, each having significant impact on the business.

You will be expected to analyze the topic in question, develop solution proposals and review their results and next steps with management for prioritization, timing, and delivery.

The Data Science team is tasked with building next-gen data science solutions that move us closer to real-time inference and decision making, including:
* Demand Forecasting - teller, banker, call center, back office, etc. transaction forecasting
* Supply Forecasting - staffing, service levels, and stress forecasting and outlooks.
* Schedule Optimization - predictive scheduling and optimization
* Operations Research - branch , call center, back office simulation networks, digitization, and what-if scenario testing


The Data Scientist Senior Associate will be charged with delivering on the CTB functional priorities listed prior. Your work will directly support the greater CCB BP&A efforts to ensure they have the best and most predictive data available for use, and will work hand-in-hand with them to ensure Chase maintains the best quantitative workforce optimization.
