You need to be hard working, enjoy the outdoor life regardless of the weather and must be willing to work as part of a team at all times.

Realists are usually interested in 'things' - such as buildings, mechanics, equipment, tools, electronics etc. Their primary focus is dealing with these - as in building, fixing, operating or designing them. Involvement in these areas leads to high manual skills, or a fine aptitude for practical design - as found in the various forms of engineering.

Realists like to find practical solutions to problems using tools, technology and skilled work. Realists usually prefer to be active in their work environment, often do most of their work alone, and enjoy taking decisive action with a minimum amount of discussion and paperwork.

17 Jobs with Data Analytics Firm QStream

Data analytics start-up QStream is doubling its workforce in Dublin over the next 12 months. The company has announced plans to add 17 new jobs at its Dublin operation.

Qstream combines science and software to generate predictive analytics for building more efficient sales teams.

The company has targeted life sciences and pharmaceutical companies, since they need to continually learn and retain a variety of complex information. The company says its platform is currently being used by 40 percent of the top 50 pharma companies, and that 94 percent of the salespeople in those client companies are regularly participating. Customers also include medical institutions, such as the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic.

Qstream was founded in 2008 in Boston by Dubliner Duncan Lennox, a UCD computer science graduate, and Dr B Price Kerfoot, an Associate Professor of Surgery in Harvard Medical School.
