Lead Data Scientist, Target
Jennifer Reiter graduated from Bethel University with a BS in Physics and a BA in Mathematics. Towards the end of her schooling, she discovered her love of coding. The first job she landed was at a tech incubator and capital fund startup company in Minneapolis where she wrote software in Python for the post-processing of biomedical images. Outside of work, Jen loves math tutoring for high school and college age students. She is passionate about investing in students and enjoys the challenge of communicating complex topics in a way that is easy to understand. For Jen, it is a joy to watch students grow to confidently tackle a math problem, no longer needing her guidance. This passion for clear communication of complex topics is found in her current work as a Lead Data Scientist at Target. One of her favorite aspects of her job is to build out custom visuals in Python. One of her first questions when coming across new data is, “how can I best visualize that?”.
