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.
