ZS Data Scientist Challenge

ZS is on the frontier of advancing data science. One of our recent innovations, an intelligent personal assistant, uses AI to help connect patients with physicians who can provide life-improving treatment. The technology has already helped patients get better care faster.

At ZS, bringing data science innovation to our clients requires exceptional data scientists who also have strong business acumen. ZS is looking for the next generation of data scientists to join our team at the intersection of data science and real-life business problem-solving. These individuals should be highly skilled in spaces such as deep learning and conversational AI.

The ZS Data Scientist Challenge is an exciting opportunity for U.S.-based data scientists who not only want to be challenged by a multifaceted healthcare problem, but also want to learn more about the kind of work being done at our global consulting firm.

ZS will evaluate challenge participants based on the following:

  • Handling of data to pre-process and generate relevant features and insights for modeling 
  • Knowledge of machine learning and statistics 
  • Proficiency in identifying the right techniques to solve the problem
  • Translation of findings into actionable business insights

During the challenge, participants will be expected to build a model with the provided sample data set using their preferred methods and tools.

Participating in the challenge will test your skills and prove your readiness to join ZS on the frontier of advancing data science. Registrants for the challenge can look forward to:

  • A unique opportunity to solve a real-life healthcare challenge, which may improve patient care and even save lives
  • Top participants will receive an all-expenses-paid trip to ZS’s Los Angeles office, where they will present their findings to industry leaders
  • First-, second-and third-place winners will receive great prizes, like a MacBook, iPad Pro and Apple Watch
  • Participants will experience a day in the life of a consultant at our global firm
  • Participants will have the chance to take part in an expedited interview process for data science consultants and data science associate consultants on our business consulting team

The challenge is open to U.S. citizens with zero to seven years of work experience and who are not enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program after July 2018.
