Finding a Data Scientist contractor with bioinformatics knowledge.
DST quickly selected a candidate with the necessary skills thanks to an existing talent pool.
The proposed candidate was successfully placed and had their contract extended twice, along with a pay rise.
The Lead Data Scientist (LDS) at one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical firms already had a team in place.
They were working on a product to provide next generation genome analysis for disease discovery and treatment using the best software currently available on the market. Their plan was to take the technology to the next level for speed and usability.
However, the LDS had identified a gap in the team’s skill set in the area of bioinformatics and algorithm knowledge. They realised they needed to quickly recruit a contractor to efficiently bridge the gap and push the project forward.
DST leveraged their extensive network in life sciences to quickly identify an individual with the right strengths and skillsets.
Within 48 hours, we interviewed ten candidates and submitted the best three to the Hiring Manager.
