The amount of data in existence is growing at an exponential pace, and the Data Scientist is one of the hottest jobs of this decade. Schools are scrambling to keep up, and technically adept employees everywhere are repurposing their resumes to jump into the field.
At the same time, companies are quickly spinning up data science teams by re-assigning and training employees from other departments.
In the midst of this rapid data arms race, hiring data scientists is complicated, time consuming, and highly technical.
StrategyWise is one of the fastest growing Data Science firms in the country, and to address this challenge, both for their
own recruiting and for their clients, they built their own in-house solution to help screen candidates and improve their vetting process.
It wasn’t long before their corporate clients asked to use the system, leading to the birth of QuantHub. QuantHub is now a completely separate LLC from StrategyWise, with independent funding.
QuantHub calls Birmingham, Alabama home and is proud to have risen out of the thriving start-up ecosystem in Birmingham.
