What interns say about us

As a summer intern, I was thrilled to discover the vast amount of data the company has accumulated, along with their advanced tools and technical expertise to effectively analyze it. I was given a lot of responsibility and felt like I contributed to the team in a short amount of time. Their extensive quantity of data and cutting-edge platforms for big data processing allowed me to grow as a data scientist. I conducted experiments on billions of rows of processed data and uncovered valuable insights that could be applied in commercial settings. I would definitely recommend interning at Maritime Optima if you are an aspiring data scientist.
