How does Topcoder approach security with my data?

What if I am a data scientist?

Great! You know what you’re looking for. Think about using Topcoder when you want a second (and third, and fourth…) opinion, or when you need some extra hands and brains on-demand.

Should I hire a data scientist?

Hiring a data scientist directly can be an easy way to get started or keep moving on your data science goals. You can typically get started quickly and pay by the hour, and it can be nice to work with the same person over time. Keep in mind there’s high demand in this field. It’s important to know if and when you need specific skills or specialities. Costs and quality can vary widely. If you prefer a range of expert advice, or multiple approaches to ensure you get the best possible solution, you should look to Topcoder. Where appropriate, Topcoder can also match you with individual experts to take your project forward.

Should I hire a data science company?

Data science companies can offer a great experience. They’ve done it before, so you can generally expect a smooth experience and a personal touch. Data science companies tend to be more expensive, however, and cost and quality still vary widely. Consider how well you want to understand the work being done. Do you want someone to take it away and come back with a result? Or do you want to follow along more? How quickly do you want to move, and how long of a relationship would you like? Also consider whether you’re looking for ‘good enough’ or ‘best possible’. With Topcoder, you get expertise on-demand, so you can have your cake and eat it too!
