Event description

Description

"The secret of my success is that we have gone to exceptional lengths to hire the best people in the world." – Steve Jobs

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. A scarcity of experienced data science talent is only half the story.

For those looking to hire data scientists, technical analysts and data engineers, there are a range of options for tipping the odds in your favour of finding that perfect hire. In this expert panel of data scientists, you'll see the problems through their eyes, and indeed see how even recruitment itself can be optimised using data science techniques.


Panelists:

  • Dr. Jesús Rogel-Salazar, Principal Data Scientist, AKQA
  • Fergus Weldon, Data Scientist, Trainline
  • Christopher Noon, Data Scientist, Dropbox
