Applications are now open for Uber Data Science Apprenticeship Program 2022. Here’s how to apply:
Applications are open for the Uber Data Science Apprenticeship Programme (DSA) 2023. Uber DSA is a 6-month, paid, full-time training programme consisting of 3 months of classroom instruction followed by 3 months of on-the-job training and mentorship while working on impactful real-life Uber projects.
This programme is designed for individuals with an enthusiasm for analytics, but who haven’t had the opportunity to work on data science challenges in a world-class tech environment. In the first 3 months, participants will take classroom training on data science fundamentals designed and led by the University of Maryland Global Campus.
Participants will then spend the last 3 months with Uber’s inspiring Data Science leaders to work on capstone projects within our Mobility, Core Services, or Marketing organizations. After completing the 6 month DSA programme, apprentices will be fast-forwarded in the hiring process (skip the initial rounds) to be interviewed for a full-time placement with data science teams.
Training for this programme will take place in the Uber offices in San Francisco, CA. The DSA programme is a full-time paid apprenticeship that requires participants to be based in the San Francisco Bay Area. Start date of the programme is January 11, 2023.
