Companies that trusted us

Frequently Asked Questions

We trust our system (after six years). We have the trust of companies who hire from us and alumni in ‘high places’ We trust you. It works.



Are any of these statements true for you?

“I have done some online courses, but I seem to get stuck in interviews”

“I have a strong science/tech foundation, but when I send my CV I never get a response”

“I’m afraid I need help to understand some of the more complicated topics in the data science world.”

“I don’t have the willpower to push myself to the limit and reach a level where I’m hireable as a data scientist.”

“I have a fulltime job or some other commitment. I can only work part-time in my education”.

If so, DSR Online Flex is for you.

If you are enrolling for the online Flex program, that’s not a problem. If you mean that you will never be able to be physically in a place other where you are (and there are not that many jobs where you are) apply for remote jobs (which may well be most of the jobs, at least during the Coronavirus pandemic). We can help you there.

You get:

  • Access to our curriculum
  • Access to our mentors. Mentors are experienced and knowledgeable professionals that can help you at any point in the curriculum.
  • Access to a career advisor.
  • Access to our slack where you can meet other students, past and present, and pair up to do projects
  • Access to companies who trusted us before and our entire network
  • Access to group QA video sessions
  • Access to workshops (not mandatory) that go more in-depth on a topic

 

We do our best to support you. If this is a rare situation, we will ask your mentor to add one more session that week. If this is a recurrent event, you can discuss this with your learning manager or program manager. Worst case scenario, you would have to drop out of the program, but we think this is unlikely.

Workshops are one to many sessions where a mentor or guest speaker goes deeper into a topic. They are not mandatory

DSR Online Flex lasts for six months, at 20hr per week. That’s about 480hrs, including project work (which is flexible and harder to estimate). You may end up using more (or less) time.

DSR Flex assumes you will work about 20hr per week. If you can do more than that, you could potentially finish the course sooner. It’ll be up to your mentor to decide if you can move faster. We will definitely not hold you back!

If something happens in your life that takes your attention away from studying, talk to your learning manager. We may be able to pause your education short term.

Because we curate existing materials, there are only minor costs associated with altering the curriculum. We’re able to update the curriculum frequently and always teach the latest tools and technologies.

After six years in the market, we have (1) a good reputation and (2) lots of alumni that are now in a position to hire. We have relationships with both startups and large companies, as you can see some companies who trusted us on this website (this is a small sample, not particularly up to date). Most companies are in Berlin, but there are companies all over the world (more so now that corona makes remote work far easier).
