The Nexus of Forces – Mobile, Social, Cloud & Information – as coined by Gartner are creating a world of new business opportunities & new talent needs in the digital age. Combine that with the IoT (Internet of Things) and it is clear how important data is as a driving force of organisations in the modern era. Technology is evolving, industries are being disrupted and a new way of thinking is needed to harness the opportunities being created.
Businesses embracing digital are creating new products to enhance their customer experience & journeys – making sense of data & yielding real results. Opportunities exist for new entrants in any sector who can translate the technology available into something usable, in turn creating interaction with the product & therefore creating even more vital information.
D&DC Data & Technology is here to help organisations who want to innovate, disrupt & revolutionise – Building the right products for the right consumers.
Our experience spans from digital start up/ high growth clients right through to corporates on the brink of large scale digital & data transformation.
We don’t mind ambiguity; in fact, we embrace it. Due to the breadth of experience we have at leadership & tactical levels through to hands on development, we work with a number of clients before they form the brief. Whether you want help refining a requirement or finding a skill-set that cannot be defined in a single page job description, we have the experience to bring the right talent to you.
Business Intelligence & Big Data
This is the data backbone which enables you to make informed decisions & insights. Whether your need is to architect a new Data Warehouse solution, upgrade your existing Business Intelligence estate or hire expertise in Database Administration we can help. The term Big Data still remains ambiguous but the technology stacks associated it with it are clear & ever evolving – Our expertise & experience can help you find those with the deep technical skills needed to return value invested in Big Data.
You need people who can harness the power of your data! Enter the Data Scientist – there is a growing need for people with deep analytical & technical skills whose role is to create meaningful value from the information at your hands.
The term Data Science can be labelled on a number of roles within an organisation – Where trends & logic is needed to understand data you could argue the term Data Analyst is more appropriate.
The data needs to come from somewhere – Lots of the Information generated will be based on your ability to communicate with your customers. Ensuring your capturing as much as you can & engaging with the audience is down to the work of your developers. There are specialists at both the back & front end, but the full stack stars are the ones who can bring your products & business to life. The technology here is ever evolving & expansive in nature – Gone are the days when developers code in only one language & adhere to one framework. Therefore, the nature of your requirements will define what we broadly term software development.
Product Leads & Heads of
The ability of the technical teams & capability of the data team is only effective if what’s being delivered is viable/useful to the customer or consumer giving them the right experience at the right time. Product Leads, Managers & Heads of ensure that the vision is kept in line with reality – being able to manage expectations from senior leadership & communicate effectively with development teams is a skill highly sought. We can help you find the talent who are experienced in bringing new products to life!
We work with large corporates who need help driving their innovation agenda, alongside high growth & start-up pioneers in the digital world. By securing the right talent, brands & businesses can better understand their customers in ways not possible before. By working with businesses of different scales & size we can attract the right talent to make sure you are a winner in the age of data & digital.
Unusual suspects – We use our history of working with CTOs / CPOs and CDO / CIOs to source the best in class candidates, not just those looking for a job or who match according to their LinkedIn profile. This means we access less candidates but usually those of a higher calibre who can come ‘recommended ‘ by a previous boss. We don’t use job boards, but we have developed partnerships with some of the country’s leading, emerging talent platforms.
Spread – due to the fact that our sister company (D&DC and PACT) cover corporate and start up networks we access candidates from both worlds. Many pay lip service to working with start-ups, we believe we commit more time and effort in building the best networks in this space, through mentorship at one of the country’s leading accelerators (TechStars), being actively involved with TLA, Judging @ MassChallenge, as well as advising and investing in several start-ups personally.
Expertise – We pride ourselves in our business understanding of what your company needs and why, not just being a point and press recruiter matching words on a cv to a brief. When relevant we use our connections to inform clients before they hire, i.e. by connecting them with others we know who have used similar technologies or faced similar problems challenges, dramatically reducing the risk of ill-informed job briefs and resulting hires.
D&DC was founded by Jerry Daniels, a head-hunter with 15 years’ experience of working with digital clients within the corporate world, sitting on the board of a medium sized international head-hunter. Jerry left this environment in 2013. Seeing the significant digital innovations being delivered in the start-up world he formed D&DC to deliver talent and other connections to this world. To learn the ropes and walk in the shoes of true entrepreneurs Jerry mentors @TechStars & Start-up Next, judges @MassChallenge and helps @LondonInnovators. This enables him to work a lot with pre series A companies with talent & connection challenges, helping them through series A and beyond. Bringing real depth of expertise in growing senior management leadership teams and helping digital companies scaling through A,B,C & D rounds hire & retain the right leadership talent.
Subsequently D&DC Data & Technology was born out of the requests from CTO, CIO, CDO & CPO’s to hire top talent across mid-senior levels in Product, Development & Data fields. We can leverage the network D&DC has at senior leadership levels across corporate and importantly start up high growth companies, to connect with the best candidates.
