Projects will vary; typical requests may include loading spreadsheets into data warehouses, quick adhoc analysis into conversion rates by landing pages, or assessment of bad rates by refer rules.  You may also work on longer-term projects such as analysing and optimising a client’s marketing spend, or supporting a credit model development / review.
