People you might work with

Aili Asikainen
Aili Asikainen

Senior data scientist, Finland


My interest in data science started with my interest in mathematics. At the end of my physics studies at University of Jyväskylä I realized that I wanted to pursue my career closer to people and real-life business problems rather than academia. This sparked my interest to study data science and machine learning on my own time and through courses provided by the university, and here we are. Before joining Thoughtworks I was a data scientist at a product and gaming company, Rovio, where I mostly focused on data modeling. 

Pietra Thamy Sofia da Fonseca Freitas

Lead data scientist, Brazil


I was still in college when I joined Thoughtworks in 2018 as a junior consultant developer. Thoughtworks was a dream for me. Thoughtworks University (our internal graduate program) opened doors to show me the potential of doing things I didn't know I was capable of. After this amazing period, I also had the opportunity to go to Thoughtworks Data University in India, meet incredible people from all over the world and gain precious knowledge about data engineering. 


I changed my role to data engineer and started to work with an international client improving a data flow that consumed millions of events a day. However, I knew my passion was data science. I wanted to work with data since I took AI classes in 2016. In 2022, I started an MBA in data science at University of São Paulo, sponsored by Thoughtworks. And in 2023 I earned my MBA degree and had opportunities to officially work as a data scientist.

I derive great satisfaction from the process of identifying requirements, comprehending the problem at hand and then crafting effective solutions. While data engineering may not be perceived as the most glamorous job, its significance cannot be overstated. It serves as the foundation for any data-driven organization, enabling the creation of impactful BI reports and even powering cutting-edge technologies like Generative AI and LLMs. By ensuring the availability of high-quality data, I contribute to unlocking the full potential of data-driven initiatives.
