ABOUT US

What we do

We help companies build a data driven organization. And we help data & analytics professionals build a great career.

We do recruitment and consulting. Our focus is on search and matching of data & analytics executives and teams.

Our specialty

Since 2018 we specialize in recruitment for data & analytics. We recruit all data & analytics roles, with a special focus on executives and teams. And we specialize in AI and Analytics Translators: professionals who translate data & analytics into effective solutions.

HOW WE WORK

DATA & ANALYTICS IS A TEAMSPORT

You need a team to effectively build data driven products and services, let alone a data driven organization. It may well start with one specialist, but ultimately you will want a team.

So, we have a team focus: typically, we build or complement – organically or through startup acquihire – data & analytics teams for our customers. Often executive search of a data & analytics executive, e.g. a Chief Data Officer, is a decisive part of that.

  2. New job – We find great fixed or temporary jobs for passionate data & analytics professionals.
  3. Development – We coach candidates in their new role and we organize professional communities, esp. for Analytics Translators.

TRADITIONAL or IN-HOUSE MODEL

For hiring companies we work with two recruitment models.

(i) – The Traditional Recruitment Model on a contingent basis is the classical (executive) search model, suitable if you want to find one specific executive or professional.

(ii) – Especially for organizations wishing to build-up a data & Analytics team fast and focused, the In-House Model gives you your own internal recruitment function, based on a fixed fee and discounted fees per placement.

Of course, there are other roles in data & analytics. Here we only mentioned the most frequent ones. Besides, new roles will emerge. The data & analytics profession is rapidly growing and will keep on changing.

Below, an example of how Data & Analytics could be organized:

Note. Above, we talk about functions, because that is easy to relate to. Your Data & Analytics efforts won’t work, though, without balanced teamwork and a focus on business results: read e.g. this or this Harvard Business Review article. A well-known method for this is DataOps.

If this makes you think twice, please invite us for a FREE workshop on how to organize Data & Analytics in your organization.

OTHER SPECIALISTS

Data & analytics and AI are a strongly emerging but still young field. Names for roles and functions are often not yet unambiguous. And many combinations of roles exist. Also there are many related roles, such as Lean & Agile Coaches, Scrum Masters, DevOps and a number of IT and business functions.

And some roles do not have enough exposure. For example, we think, that the roles of Data Czar and Analytics Translator currently get far too little attention. And don’t forget the roles of eg. Data Tester and Data Consultant.

So, there are many other names for data & analytics specialists. Often these roles are named after a specific application or technology, like ML Expert. Of course, we are ready to help you find the right candidate or job. Such roles include e.g.:

  • Robotics (RPA) Expert

  • Internet-of-Things (IoT) Expert

  • Blockchain & Smart Contracts Expert

  • Augmented/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) Expert

  • Quantum Computing (QC) Expert

  • CRISPR (esp. CRISPR-cas9) Expert

Also, it is important to note that Analytics Translators, Data Analysts and Data Product Managers usually have a specialization in an industry sector, e.g. financial services (FinTech) or healthcare (MedTech), or a functional specialization, e.g. HRM (People Analytics) or logistics (Smart Supply Chain, e.g. combined with IoT and Blockchain).
