Data Science Conference - The Fifth Elephant

Data Science Conference – The Fifth Elephant

This Friday was full of events. While we were enjoying our summer party on our sun terrace, our HR colleague Bhakti from India was at a data science conference called “The Fifth Elephant”. This is where Data Scientists from all over India came together to discuss the latest issues and changes in the technology world. Topics included “The Power of Intuition in Data Sciences and why it always wants to be a role” or “Understanding Scalability Limits of Spark Applications”.

As Bhakti was the only recruiter among a lot of IT specialists, she was excited to make new acquaintances. What sounds like paradise for a recruiter in Germany, however, is hard work for our Indian colleague. Because the Indian market looks a little different than the German market: Whereas we have to actively search for IT specialists here, the Indian market is teeming with potential that wants to be discovered. However, not all that glitters is gold here, and so Bhakti has to recognize who has real potential.


So she took the opportunity during the corporate contributions from Uber, Walmart Labs and co. Sharing with interesting people, enjoying the energetic mood and the enthusiasm that filled the whole hall. What output it generated, we will learn in our next HR Connect.
