The Challenge

Join us to create innovative data solutions (web apps, chatbots, dashboards, model interfaces...) that empower businesses by generating insights from product reviews. Ideally, these data products will help solve a wide range of business problems, like product optimization, marketing budget allocation, and many others!

You will receive a set of Amazon reviews from various products in different industries, and your team will represent a product company's data team. Your team will develop an end-to-end data product that is able to analyze all product reviews and generate actionable insights to inform stakeholders' decisions.


Data Engineering: Extracting data from multiple sources, harmonizing datasets, and automating data transformation. Be prepared to work with streaming data as well.


Machine Learning: Exploring and visualizing correlations, selecting vital features, and experimenting with machine learning models.


Data Analytics: Addressing data quality issues, analyzing key parameters, visualizing insights, and selecting relevant KPIs.
