About Us

Just as the field of Data Science is growing and ever-changing, so too is our team: we’re on the hunt for instructors who are passionate about what they do and want to make a difference in the education of the world’s up-and-coming data scientists — our students.

The NYC Data Science Academy prides itself on housing the most comprehensive 12-week intensive bootcamp in data science methodologies, providing theoretical, practical, and hands-on knowledge to our scholars. We adapt faster than the quickest machine learning algorithms out there — with content that reflects research and application in the growing market and teaching expertise that is beyond ordinary.

We encourage collaboration and positive change in not only our students and clients but also in our team. Nerding out is also highly encouraged.
