Kin + Carta is an innovation and emerging technology firm that helps Fortune 500 companies seize new opportunities through world-changing digital solutions. We
believe strongly that the difference between analytics success and failure comes down to practitioner-level
understanding of the “details” presented across a variety of disciplines: data collection, organization, and
engineering in a rapidly evolving technological landscape; analytical inference on multi-dimensional data sets;
and the communication of findings to business stakeholders in visually compelling ways. As such, we seek a
new breed of data professionals that can cut across these disciplines as project requirements dictate,
blurring the lines between data analyst, scientist, and engineer, with the ability to work across a multitude
of projects and contribute across various aspects of data product delivery. While our culture promotes
continual development and multidisciplinary growth, over time employees may gravitate towards a specific
specialism and thrive in building a deep expertise in their domain of interest.
