Cheers to 5 Years! Metis Celebrates a Half Decade of Data Science Training

By Metis  • December 10, 2018

As we celebrate our 5th anniversary, we want to thank our incredible community of alumni, students, staff, and other close members of the Metis family for all their support, hard work, and dedication throughout the years. Our growth and success are only possible because of this support, which allows us to continue toward the overall goal of bringing data science training and education to the world. With much more work to do, we look toward the future, but not before celebrating the past and present. 

We're so proud of our bootcamp graduates, who are making an impact on a wide range of industries that influence virtually every aspect of our lives. At Amazon, Ana-Elisa Gentle  builds machine learning models to improve recruiting initiatives and better internal company processes. At e-commerce retailer Zulily, Gavin King helps hone online shopping experience events, while Yong Cho runs A/B testing and analytics for personalized marketing campaigns at food delivery service Grubhub. 

At Radiant Solutions (a Maxar company – the world’s leading provider of high-resolution earth imagery – Alan Schoen works on neural network systems while Michael Lai applies machine learning algorithms to vast amounts of complex data sets for the Philadelphia 76ers. At UT Southwestern Medical Center, internal medicine resident physician Sameh Saleh encourages other clinicians-in-training to seriously consider the value of a data science education in their lifelong medical endeavors, and Emily Barry applies her data science training at Change Healthcare, one of the largest independent healthcare technology companies in the nation.

And the list goes on throughout media, financial services, healthcare, retail and dozens of other industries. Metis alums populate top companies including Instagram, IBM, Spotify, Tumblr, Facebook, WeWork, Aetna, Blue Apron, BuzzFeed, Deloitte, Casper, Apple, Tinder, CapitalOne, Uber, Nike, and more. 

Beyond the bootcamp, we've expanded to offer live online professional development courses, allowing students to learn data science from anywhere in the world, and we've also expanded to provide corporate training across the globe, including to Fortune 500 clients Wells Fargo and Intel. Our corporate training team creates customized learning programs for industries including financial services, technology, retail, oil and gas, legal, professional services, risk management, and media, and works in partnership with clients to train data scientists, analysts, engineers, and executives.

We invite you to watch the video above and read through the infographic below to see where we've been, how we've grown, and where we expect to go. Again, thank you for your support. We appreciate it and look forward to many more years of data science training to come!
