  • Managing *nix servers.
  • Writing unit tests.
  • Using continuous integration.

An Insider's view of Strong Analytics

What's something quirky about your company?

Our vibe alternates between goofy and intellectual. So you never know if you’re going to walk into an argument about the virtues of zero-indexing, Adam vs. SGD, or a gif of Mechagodzilla firing lasers out of his eyes.

Data Scientist

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

The landscape of modern data science technology is changing nearly every day. We watch these technologies closely to avoid re-inventing the wheel and reap their benefits, while also considering their stability/longevity.

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our clients come to us with challenging and cutting-edge projects. A natural curiosity will take you a long way to diving deep into the problem, getting started on a solution, and pivoting as you encounter obstacles. Likewise, a collaborative spirit within our team — and with our clients — is essential to being effective in data science consulting.

Andrew K

Data Scientist

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

We work in close collaboration with our team on every project. Our involvement includes strategic leadership, of course, but we also work hard to empower our team in bringing their own creative solutions to our clients.

Co-Founder

What are some things you learned at the company?

My absolute favorite part of working at Strong is how much I learn every day. Our team brings together diverse expertise from a variety of backgrounds, which makes it an amazing learning community. Our Friday lab meetings epitomize this and offer a great opportunity to learn something new!
