Co-op/Intern
Join our award-winning Campus Program. Apply for an 8-month co-op starting January 2020.

You will be working with the lead Data Scientist as your mentor, and together you will decide on projects based on what excites you as well as Visier’s business interests. This may be a software engineering focus, e.g. enhancing our machine learning pipelines or prototyping of automated insight generation, or all the way to a research focus of unveiling compelling insights into the workforce from our unique multi-million employee cross-customers data set.

As a strong supporter of Co-Operative (Co-op) Education and our partner universities, we give preference to students enrolled in the Co-op program.
