As we continue to gear up for the first San Francisco-based Metis cohort, we're hosting a career-focused event in our SF space on Thursday, October 15, featuring the incredibly smart Shawn Scully, Director of Product at Dato. During the event, he'll explore the evolving career paths of data scientists.
