    Well if you have no experience or technical skills with data science you need learn some before someone will give you a job in the field. What programming languages do you know?

      You need to learn statistics and done data engineering preferably using R or python. If you don't want education you need to find the group you work with at your company and try to get involved in the job.

      Curious as to what extent would a Data scientist need to learn algorithms and data structures? Would this skill be at par with those of SWEs?

      You definitely need to know big o, trees, sorting, etc. You probably don't need to know the ins and outs of a particular language, how to parallelize massively, the more complex graph algorithms, or a whole lot about object oriented design.
