Data scientists are in high demand. There is simply not enough talent to fill the jobs. Why? Because the sexiest job of 21th century requires a mixture of broad, multidisciplinary skills ranging from an intersection of mathematics, statistics, computer science, communication and business. Finding a data scientist is hard. Finding people who understand who a data scientist is, is equally hard.

“Being a data scientist is not only about data crunching. It’s about understanding the business challenge, creating some valuable actionable insights to the data, and communicating their findings to the business.”

Jean-Paul Isson, Monster Worldwide, Inc.
