VP, People Operations

Posted Jan 13

Dataiku is allowing enterprises to create value with their data in a human-centered way while breaking down silos and encouraging collaboration. One of the most unique characteristics of our product, Data Science Studio (DSS), is the breadth of its scope and the fact that it caters both to technical and non-technical users. Through DSS, we aim to empower people through data and democratize data science.

At Dataiku, we believe that people are a (if not the) critical piece of the equation in building data-powered companies. This belief goes far beyond Dataiku the product: it infiltrates our very culture and defines us as a company as well.
