The new ASI Data Science & Data Engineering Fellowship is now available for 2019 January intake. This Fellowship is available for PhD graduates, postdoctoral researchers and experienced software engineers’ transition into a career in data science.
The ASI fellowship was a fantastic opportunity for easyJet to experiment with data science in a low-risk manner. We hired the Fellows that were working with us, and they have been the foundation of the data science team at easyJet. This is a unique programme that has greatly benefitted easyJet.
To unlock the power of data in gaining competitive advantage, we help organisations to make sense of the data, big and small. We believe firmly in providing innovative, simple and easy to implement solutions that generate business value. We offer a comprehensive package of bespoke services include consulting, training and sourcing outstanding data specialists from our very own data science fellows and community.
