Hiring? Data Science Career Day 6/23 in NYC & 6/30 in SF

By Metis  • June 21, 2016

Glassdoor recently named Data Scientist the top job of 2016.

"They're in high demand but require such a high quantity of specialized knowledge that good ones are a rare breed," Tech.Co wrote in an article about the report.

Indeed they are a rare breed. Throughout our 12-week project-based Data Science Bootcamp, we train students for demanding roles as Data Scientists post-graduation, ensuring they're capable of helping companies with complex needs from Day 1 of employment. During the bootcamp, students build five projects using machine learning and statistical modeling techniques in Python, industry-level visualizations in D3, and real-world data in cloud-based SQL, no-SQL, and Hadoop databases. Their fifth and final project is the one you'll see at Career Day, an event during which each students presents to a room of hiring employers.

We have two such events coming up. If you're hiring and in New York City, RSVP to attend Career Day on Thursday, June 23rd starting at 5:00pm. And if you're in the San Francisco area, RSVP to attend on Thursday, June 30th, 5:00pm.

Here are some examples our recent student final projects, which range in topic from Netflix binging patterns, to crime bias, to solving complex puzzles using machine learning.

Crossword Puzzles with Machine Learning

Perceived vs. Actual Crime in NYC neighborhoods

Estimating House Prices in San Francisco

Visaurant: Reimagining the way you eat
