Help Us Shape the Future of Data
Anaconda is the creator of the world’s most popular Python data science platform. With more than 6 million users, the open source Anaconda Distribution is the easiest way to do data science and machine learning. Anaconda Enterprise allows organizations to collaborate, govern and deploy their Python and R data science in enterprise data centers and clouds. Customers include leading companies from the banking and financial services, energy, auto, technology, and healthcare industries.
Anaconda is seeking people who want to play a role in shaping the future of enterprise AI, machine learning, and data science. Candidates should be knowledgeable and capable, but always eager to learn more and to teach others. Overall, we strive to create a culture that is both relaxed and focused, and we stress empathy and collaboration with our customers, open source users, and each other. Our primary employee perk is that we are actively working on projects that have a global impact, whether it's detecting fraud in the financial markets, accelerating cancer research, or fighting human trafficking and terrorism.
Be An Anaconda Champion!
Anaconda consultants work directly with customers to champion the use of Anaconda Enterprise and the Anaconda Distribution in production-ready analytics, machine learning, and AI solutions. A successful engagement is a synergistic collaboration between customer and consultant, combining the customer’s domain knowledge with our Anaconda expertise. More than just software engineers, Anaconda Consultants are advisors, trainers, architects, and implementors, all at the same time.
In addition to superior technical competence and communication, Anaconda Consultants must possess a broad knowledge of the Anaconda data science ecosystem. Anaconda and DataCamp have teamed up to offer a full complement of online course materials that cover our most sought-after skills, and an Anaconda Data Science Certification to demonstrate mastery.
A completed ADSC is not required to become an Anaconda Consultant, nor is the completion of any of specific DataCamp coursework. However, DataCamp is an enjoyable, engaging, cost-effective way for anyone to fill in gaps in their data science skill set. Many of our own team members continue to develop their knowledge using DataCamp. If you have completed any of their courses prior to your application, do let us know!
