Our House is Open to you, SF and NYC. Come on Over!

As our current cohort of bootcamp students finishes up week three, each has already begun one-on-one meetings with the Career Services team to start planning their career paths together. They're also anticipating the start of the Metis in-class speaker series, which began this week with analysts and data scientists from Priceline and White Ops, to be followed in the coming weeks by data scientists from the United Nations, Paperless Post, untapt, CartoDB, and the genius who mined Spotify data to determine that "No Diggity" is, in fact, a timeless classic. Meanwhile, we're busy planning Meetup events in New York City and San Francisco that will be open to all -- and currently have open houses scheduled in both Metis locations. You're invited to come meet the Senior Data Scientists who teach our bootcamps and to learn about the Metis student experience from our staff and alumni.
Metis New York City Open House Wednesday, Nov. 4, 6:30 - 8:00pm RSVP
Metis San Francisco Open House Thursday, Nov. 12, 6:30 - 8:00pm RSVP
Today, March 8th is International Women's Day, a day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural, and political achievements of women around the globe, but also to highlight inequality and press on toward gender parity and equal rights for every woman, everywhere. This year's theme and call-to-action is #PressforProgress. We asked staff and alumni what that means to them.
During the Metis bootcamp, we place a strong focus on community. In this piece, San Francisco Program Manager Stephany Bittar writes about how that foundation is built and how it grows through daily collaboration, outings in downtown SF, ping pong tournaments, and much more.
Seattle is the fastest-growing big city in the United States and it’s also become the second strongest tech market in the country. Along with major players like Amazon and Microsoft, there’s a significant mid-sized and startup community feeding into the city’s contagious energy – and many of these companies need data scientists! To help fill those roles, we opened our Seattle campus in September 2017 with the plan to harness and guide some of the city’s tech talent toward data science specifically. Here are 6 things you should know about our bootcamp in Seattle.
