My Client Stories

Raj transitioned from being a DBA and ETL developer to a Data Engineer. His combination of skills included data pipeline management, data quality, and database development so data engineering was a natural fit for him. He had also volunteered for a data engineering project in his current job and used his own time to get up to date.

Jessica was a software engineer who was bored to tears and was worried that her skills were getting outdated.  The combination of her contributions to several open-source projects, her volunteer IT work for a non-profit, and the recent classes she attended helped her skill set shine through.  She was able to move on to a Lead Software Engineer position using Python.

As a Data Scientist, Samuel built a successful data science team.  The company transitioned to an innovative mindset and adopted good data practices enterprise wide. He was ready to advance his career by becoming a senior leader in an analytics driven organization. We worked together to enable him to move forward with his career.
