Optimise Launches Internship Program for Data Science Graduates


Optimise has launched an internship program for budding data science graduates in conjunction with the University of East Anglia.

Data is being produced in ample amounts and the data analytics market is only continuing to grow, so leading global performance marketing company Optimise has launched an internship program for data science graduates. The program launched in September 2018 in association with the University of East Anglia and has been designed to help data science graduates apply their skills within a commercial environment, offering valuable experience.

Optimise is keen to support the development of budding local talent by providing opportunities for graduates to work on data related projects that provide value by creating a positive impact and commercial return for clients. The internship aims to inspire those to get involved in the tech ecosystem through hands-on experience.

According to statistics, the UK economy is expected to create 56,000 jobs for data scientists every year between 2016 and 2020, calling for a number of highly skilled professionals in the industry.

The first two interns to take part in the program said that it has been an “amazing opportunity to see what a real data science career can be, as well as understanding the challenges that businesses are facing in respect of their data.” They added that “it’s an experience with a steep learning curve and has been challenging at times but we have learnt a lot on both the business side as well as the R&D data science side.”

“We’re more than just a software platform, so we don’t just send clients a 200-page spreadsheet and say ‘good luck’. Crystal clear reports and a team of analytics experts give clients the story behind the data, using powerful visualisation tools to translate it into insights they can act upon instantly, optimising campaigns to boost conversion and maximise ROI,” said Stephen Rumbelow, Optimise CEO.

Optimise has also been shortlisted for nine awards at the 2018 International Performance Marketing Awards in recognition of how it’s been using data-driven innovation for the benefit of their international clients.
