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.

Ideal candidates will have strong quantitative backgrounds and analytical discipline. While they will have some demonstrated ability to write code, they will not have learned programming languages for the sake of building their resume, but rather as a means to express their intellectual curiosity and analytical voice. Kin + Carta will provide a platform and training to help them reach their full potential.
