“Today’s world is drowning in data and starving for insights. Our digital lives have created an overwhelming flood of information. In the last 5 years, data scientists have come to the rescue by trying to make sense of it all.
The sexy job in the next 10 years will be statisticians, and I’m not kidding.” – Hal Varian, chief economist at Google
One of the most repeated queries JobsIIT receives by fresher and experienced professional that how do I get into Analytic, here is the end of all your queries-

and a few more.
We have a simple approach – Work Hard, Party Harder. We hire candidates with exceptional skills, sheer intelligence, sound aptitude, the right attitude, truthfulness, transparency, and extremely hard working qualities.
JobsIIT: What are the three most important qualities that you would want in a candidate?
- We are Data. Data is us. You must have to be a Data lover to be here
- Strong programming experience in Java/Python/Scala with design patterns, algorithms, data analysis, and analytics
- Being able to remain neutral toward any specific technology choice or vendor; being more interested in results than personal preferences
JobsIIT: Your favorite and most important interview question in a job interview.
Pranav: Why (not who or what) are you?
JobsIIT: Number of candidates (along with profiles) you are planning to hire this fiscal year
Pranav: We look for Quality, not Quantity. For number’s sake, we would be hiring 15-20 cream resources during the Year 2015. People who enjoy (more than anything. anything means anything. You got it. huh?) Big Data, Predictive Analytics, Machine Learning, Coding, and Data.
JobsIIT: Anything else you want to share that would attract candidates and give more insight about the jobs
Pranav: We don’t have Big Data jobs. We have Big Data passions. We are not looking for job seekers. We are looking for challenge acceptors.
As said, “Big Data is like teenage sex: everyone talks about it, nobody really knows how to do it, everyone thinks everyone else is doing it, so everyone claims they are doing it.”
We are much above this layer. Decide.
A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships are built for.
