Karolis Urbonas

Western Union, Applied Business Intelligence Manager in Europe


Our company has countless amounts of data but it cannot be simply laying in a drawer. We need people to work with it, who will manage to use it in order to extract insights about improving some of the processes, do research and make conclusions about the customers’ behaviour. Our clients make 29 transfers in one second, therefore, we accumulate enormous amounts of data in the whole world every day. The company really needs specialists, who could work with large arrays of data. Very often, candidates with such experience dictate the price for us themselves.
