This is a position we have had before. I have connected with the FBAM and have confirmation the job description encompasses the responsibilities that will come however, the Python and SQL coding is a key fundamental for the role. It's been shared that if candidates do not have the ability to code on Python and SQL, they will not be successful in this role. Furthermore feedback received, is that there are many folks with python all over their profile however, when interviewing, there is an assessment on Python coding and many have fallen short or confused by the questions regarding functions and solutions. I ask for you as our partners to thoroughly screen candidates, if possible with coding assessments in Python, and those passing will be better aligned for this role. Please share your feedback and challenges your are encountering. If we are not seeing more aligned candidates we will then proceed to a calibration call with the FBAM.
