Texas Transplant, Math Wiz, and Data Science Analyst

Name: Maddie W.
Job Title: Data Science Analyst in Portfolio Analytics and Credit Strategy

From intern to analyst to recruiter.

I started as an intern in the summer of 2018 and then was offered an analyst position after I completed my last year of graduate school. After packing up my (very limited) winter gear, I moved to Riverwoods from Texas and started my new position in July 2019 on the Prime Credit Line Increase (CLI) team.  On the CLI team, I perform analytics to develop strategies for proactively increasing customer’s credit lines. Because of my experience as an intern, I was also invited to travel with Discover’s campus recruiting team to different universities and conferences to speak with students and potential job candidates. I have had so much fun helping Discover with their recruiting events because not only do I get to meet different people from around Discover but I also get to speak with so many great students and candidates from all over the world! I love hearing what they are passionate about and informing them how Discover’s internships/full-time positions can help them reach their goals; hopefully, encouraging them to apply. My hope is to get new and upcoming talent into our various analytics programs across Discover.

Management that cares.

All the training opportunities that Discover provides for their employees are incredible—everyone here is so supportive and helpful! The training makes it easy to learn new skills to become the best professional that I can be. The dedicated management here helps you with your professional goals as well as helping you to meet your personal goals. I am always able to ask questions or voice my opinions.

Commitment to communities and customers.

The best experience that I have had so far at Discover is the volunteering event where we went to a park and we worked on beautifying and improving the area for the community. I love how much Discover cares about the community through a strong belief in volunteerism. Also, I like how much Discover cares about its customers and that we can balance the ability to have a strong and profitable company while maintaining a positive customer service environment.
