TL;DR: On Deck is launching On Deck Data Science: a continuous community for ambitious Data Science leaders who want to maximize their impact and accelerate their careers alongside a highly-curated network of peers.
The linear data science career path doesn’t exist. All too often, ambitious data scientists find it challenging to identify the right opportunities, exchange ideas with like-minded peers, and develop the optimal set of skills to grow as professionals. In this rapidly-evolving field, it's crucial to have exposure to more than just a handful of organizations and a narrow peer group.
Enter On Deck Data Science (ODDS):
ODDS is a continuous community for ambitious Data Science leaders who want to maximize their impact and accelerate their careers alongside a highly-curated network of peers.
The fellowship kicks off with a 4-week immersive experience; an opportunity to get to know the community and learn how to navigate On Deck to achieve your goals for the year ahead. ODDS brings together experienced leaders in the industry who have used data science to deliver results for organizations and customers at the highest level.
As an ODDS member you can leverage the community in a number of ways:
- Community: The ODDS community facilitates meaningful relationships with peers and mentors. Curated 1:1 connections, mastermind sessions and mentorship matchmaking - the hard work is done for you.
- Networking: Set your career up for the next 10 years with a 10x your network of peers. In the short run, use this network to find mentors across tech, find your next opportunity, or find your next star hire. You get access to the entire On Deck network instantly when you join.
- Professional Development: Data scientists are typically self-learners, but leading data teams and products in a rapidly changing field requires whole new categories of skill that are best learned directly from the best. ODDS fellows will acquire specialized frameworks, knowledge and skills via live sessions and fireside chats with incredible guests and an extensive library of content.
- Credibility: We're building Silicon Valley in the cloud and the On Deck fellowship will be a high signal credential for Data Science leaders.
ODDS empowers you to grow by facilitating connections with like-minded peers who have experienced the same type of professional challenges. Whether you want to discuss best practices for hiring, map your roadmap to business outcomes, or brainstorm solutions to everyday challenges, the ODDS community is here for you.
