‘Rent’ the best

certace is first and foremost a platform through which data scientists shall get the possibility to work on interesting data problems to help clients solve their most complex business challenges. The data scientists in the certace network all had to pass the multi-dimensional assessment.

‘Why does it make sense to work with independent data scientists?’ you might ask. The first reason is true for almost any company: it is less risky to work with freelancers than to hire permanent employees. But, for data scientists, there is a much stronger second reason: freelance talent is less prejudiced towards data and usually more up to date on the newest methods/learnings that are discussed in open source communities.
