VIRTUAL MEETUP: Data Scientist – Corporate vs Start-Up

  • Thursday 25th June 20 - 12:00 to 13:30
  • Zoom Webinar

For many data scientists, the thrill and excitement of joining a start-up is what they have worked towards for much of their life to date. However, for others, the challenges of plying their trade in the context of a corporate strategy is regarded as even more fulfilling in that opportunities exist:

– to deepen domain expertise

– solve complex business problems

– Create broad value to household name organisations

In some cases, such opportunities may not be mutually exclusive so join us on the 25th June at 12pm GMT+1 for a discussion on the differences between deployment of data scientists in differing business models and what it means at a personal level for:

– Career development and job satisfaction

– Development of deeper data skill and domain expertise

– Cultural differences and challenges that ensue

– How to make the best of your career choices
