Insight has been building and scaling data teams across the US and Canada for over 5 years. Our unique approach helps talent acquisition and hiring teams save time with their recruiting process, by introducing them to more high quality candidates, which helps shorten the time it takes from interview to hire. We focus on roles that are difficult to fill, either because they require specialized expertise, or because they are so new that only a handful of people are considered “qualified” by the traditional recruitment standards. We work with over 700 partners, that range from the most cutting-edge startups to industry-leading Fortune 500 companies.
Insight runs a free Fellowship programs for scientists, engineers, and data professionals. In 2018, we received over 10,000 applications from across the US and Canada. We charge zero tuition or fees for any of our programs, and have granted over $1M in need-based scholarships for living expenses for Fellows, helping to bring people from underrepresented backgrounds into these fields. In our 7-week programs, Insight Fellows learn to apply their existing skills and expertise to new domains. In this way, we are able to address the talent shortage in rapidly-growing fields where experienced candidates are in extremely short supply.
Insight has provided us at Indigo with several high-quality data scientists who were able and ready to perform on day 1, building out everything from bioinformatics tools to analysis of remote sensing and geospatial data to probabilistic programming.
