Hiring & Building Data Science Teams

March 13, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

  • This event has passed.
Whether you work in finance or e-commerce, data is now a critical part of every industry. At this event, you will meet local data experts and get advice on hiring and building a top data science team at your company. Panelists include:

  • Carleton Smith – Data Science Immersive Instructor, General Assembly
  • Mark Irvine – Senior Data Scientist, WordStream
  • Benjamin Batorsky – Data Scientist , ThriveHive
  • Michael Bell – Senior Data Scientist , Agero
  • Stephen Lawrence – Managing Director / Head of Quantextual Research, ‎State Street Global Exchange, State Street Corporation

Why it Matters:
Hiring for data science roles has become increasingly challenging with the growing skills gap. There are more roles available than there are people qualified to fill them. Finding a great data scientist who has good coding skills, deep statistical expertise, communication skills plus relevant commercial experience has been compared to hunting for unicorns.

With the growing demand, we have invited top data science in Boston to discuss what to look for in candidates, how to skill up your existing employees, and what it really takes to hire and build strong data science teams.
