Data Help Wanted: These Chicago Companies Are Hiring Junior Data Scientists

by Alyssa Schroer
August 2, 2019

Data science is an advanced field that requires intricate knowledge of scientific methods, algorithms and the processes by which information is withdrawn from sets of structured and unstructured data. Because of this, getting into the field looks very different from other professions. Many junior and entry-level roles require more advanced qualifications like a PhD or master’s degree. Since data science is already an advanced career path, the experience needs follow suit, but there are still non-senior level positions out there for the taking. The following Chicago companies are all looking for data scientists who may be advanced in their academic careers, but who are in the beginning stages of building their professional experience.
