7:30-8:30pm: Marcus Cherry
Marcus is a Senior Analyst in the ML & AI team at Just Eat.
Just Eat is operating in a very competitive marketplace and our product teams are always looking for new features to get ahead of the game. However, they need to prove that these fancy new features are actually adding value. They do this with experimentation.
Marcus' part in this is to automate the data pipeline, statistics and reporting for their experimentation program so that the product teams can self-serve and deliver more valuable features into the apps faster. This combines varying proportions of data engineering, statistics, analysis and data visualisation.
He'll be touching a bit on each of these aspects as he talks about the journey they've been on, to shoe-horn billions of rows of raw analytics data into a nice fast Tableau dashboard with smiley faces on it.
