The IT + Tech Industry is evolving, and the evolution is fast-paced and constant. In order to thrive in this world, companies have to be able to expand, integrate, and adjust all aspects of their processes and people.

It is enigmatic to those unfamiliar with the intricacies of the space. The IT + Tech industry is expansive yet focused and attention to detail as well as the familiarity that only occurs with experience and knowledge is the only way for these companies to stay relevant and build solid foundations and infrastructures. Luckily, seamless integration and transitions, a hyper-focus on performance, nuance, and efficiency is what we do and have been doing for over 23 years.

We don’t have clients. We have partners. We take a personal interest in any company we affiliate with. The Protis Global team operates through an iron-clad methodology to expand and build companies to their full potential – it’s The Protis Way.

Specifically, we’ve encountered that Data Scientists are a huge priority in many organizations right now. We’ve also found it’s very difficult to find QUALIFIED talent in this field. Important information to be aware of:

Annual demand for Data Scientists will reach nearly 700,000 openings by 2020 which is a spike of 28%.

By 2020 the number of jobs for all US data professionals will increase by 364,000 openings to 2.72 Million according to IBM.

Data Science and Analytics jobs remain open an average of 45 days.  That’s 5 days longer than the market average.

The 2017 State of Data Science & Machine Learning Survey report found that 32% of full-time data scientists started learning machine or data science through a Massive  Open Online Course (MOOC) and 27% are self-taught.

This begs the question:  With the high demand for Data Scientists, how are YOU attracting talent to your organization that is both available and, most importantly, verified?!

Protis Global leverages a unique partnership that is not available to any other talent attraction firm in the country.  This partnership puts qualified candidates through an 8-week training program that focuses on training these candidates in the areas of Python, Machine Learning, Distributed Computation, Hadoop, Mapreduce, Distributed Computing with Spark, and Exploratory/Explanatory Data Visualization.  In order to pass this course and stay in the eligible hiring pool, candidates must maintain a 90% throughout the training.  Qualified candidates must possess an advanced degree in STEM as well as 3+ years of relevant experience.

In turn, the candidates who successfully complete this training are now ready to be hired by Protis Global clients across the country.   The application process, paired with the rigor of the program itself, broadens the traditional hiring pool by supplying you with qualified candidates you may have missed. Likewise, by pre-qualifying candidates, we can drastically reduce your time-to-hire.

Our second offering in this space is in partnering with our clients to help their existing team develop and train within the Data Science field. Our Protis Global team working in tandem with our partnered incubator can build a training program to address your team’s specific needs, from 2-3 day workshops to multi-week modules. Leveraging world-class industry expertise to turn your budding data analysts into knowledgeable practitioners.

To put it simply… we got your back!
