Last week our Tengu team headed to Collision Conference, the fastest growing tech conference in the US according to Forbes. Next to the fact that we've enjoyed the three sunny, jazz-filled Conference days a lot, we're able to meet about 24,638 attendees from over 120 countries. A bunch of potential interesting startups, investors, media and key tech influencers to connect with.
Data scientists and data engineers are in high demand these days. For instance, I see marketing agencies quickly hiring a “data scientist" out of fear for missing the "big data train" or they are afraid of missing business because they cannot prove being enough “data driven”. But for most other organisations, their main goal for hiring big data specialists is optimizing internal operations and obtain insights in customer behaviour and potential new trends.
