  • Careers in Data Science and Data Engineering Infosession

    Thomas Lord Department of Computer Science

    Workshops & Infosessions

    With the explosion of raw data being produced in recent years, data scientists and engineers work on topics covering almost every aspect of life we can think of. Top companies like Facebook, Twitter, Netflix, The New York Times, Merck, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and the Broad Institute are hiring students from quantitative fields to help them glean insights from the terabytes of data that they collect every day. While the amount of data these companies are producing and storing is growing exponentially, there is a severe shortage of top talent to organize, store, and analyze these data and extract valuable insights.

    In this seminar, Judit Lantos will discuss her transition from a career in research to becoming a Data Engineer and Program Director at the Insight Data Engineering Fellowship program, where she helps graduating students from quantitative fields make the transition themselves. She will also give a high-level overview of the state of the field of data engineering and industry-wide trends, as well as the tools and skills that top data-driven companies are looking for when hiring data scientists and engineers. The session will include time for Q&A, as well as advice for those interested in transitioning to careers based on Insight's experience working with 600+ alumni.
