Unprecedented Participation From India’s Top Talent

Indus Insights, a leading Big Data consulting firm helping organizations use analytics to improve business performance, announced today that the company has completed a highly successful recruiting season that featured unprecedented interest from students attending India’s leading technical institutions.

In all, more than 3,500 students enrolled to take Indus’ rigorous entry exam, gauging candidates’ analytical, quantitative, and business understanding skills. From this pool, Indus has extended offers to thirty-four students who will now have the opportunity to enter the company’s Data Scientist training program led by members of the management team as well as faculty members from globally recognized institutions.

“The superior qualities and capabilities of Indus Data Scientists is what sets us apart in a very competitive marketplace,” said Saurabh Sharma, founder and CEO of Indus. “Through an intensive recruitment and training process, we continue to grow our team with the best analytical minds in India who are committed to helping our global clients become more valuable.”

Indus’ recruiting campaign centered on the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT) campuses at Bombay, Delhi, Madras, Roorkee and other leading educational institutes. Each prospect took Indus’ 90-minute proprietary test, designed and refined by Indus over the past three years and developed to measure the capabilities required of a superior data scientist. Candidates who cleared the test went through rigorous case and
behavioral interviews.

“The demand for data scientists is intense and, as a result, students with the requisite skills have many career options at their disposal,” said Rituraj Shukla, who heads up campus hiring at Indus. “With that in mind, the success of our recruitment program this year, marked by the overwhelming interest and excitement from the IIT students who took our test, is a reflection of the reputation Indus has established as being a leading analytics firm serving world-class companies around the world.”
