"I started Data Talent Advisors to provide a service to my fellow data kin - both hiring managers and candidates. We have seen a lot in terms of the evolution of the big data & analytics space and how other technologies/frameworks are merging.
We are able to tell your company's story and vision beyond the job description to allow our candidates to better understand why your company may be a great fit for their next step. For candidates, we vet all of our employers to provide you opportunities that will help fine-tune your craft by working in modern, innovative environments that will challenge you and help you grow."
