The opportunity to join BiLD Analytics was a challenging surprise. As an Industrial Engineer, working with data is not the most trivial path. The Academy was the chance to be taught by highly skilled professionals and discover a new universe, where I could integrate my analytical reasoning with tools capable of optimizing several processes. With an incredible team, I can say that my professional and personal development in the space of two months was the best experienced to date.
