What you’ll learn:

At RStudio, we believe open source, code-first data science frameworks based on R and Python, centralized on-prem or in the cloud for ease of collaboration, sharing and administration, help data science teams be successful. However, finding and retaining the right people is just as key for building a productive, effective, and collaborative data science team.

In this panel webinar, you will hear from leaders at RStudio, Boeing, Pandora, Beam Dental, & Amwell, about what it takes to hire for a successful data science team:

  • Their experiences and perspective on hiring to build great data science teams
  • How their teams prioritizes skills and experience in new positions
  • How they think about skill assessment
  • Their advice to data scientists just getting started
