As the Space Coast seeks to beef up its talent attraction muscles — and support corporate stakeholders in attracting the best and the brightest — a local, big data consulting team is promoting a “work remote” initiative that is scaling its membership more globally.
Daryl Heinz, who runs a 60-person global data consultancy, has led data efforts at the National Science Agency, as well as Facebook and LinkedIn. Heinz, a Melbourne native, launched a series of free workshops last summer to explore what interested residents in his hometown may have in exploring how to use free online tools to build data solutions. Since the launch, Heinz’s trainees have secured work with Universal Studios, NASA, and Health First.
