Doing Freelance Data Science Consulting in 2019

About 15 months ago, I left my full-time job as a machine learning team lead with the goal of doing independent / freelance data science consulting. Since then, I’ve gotten a lot of questions about what that means and entails. I have not found too much information about this type of work, other than Greg Reda’s fantastic post. I hope this blog post answers some of those questions for anybody interested in becoming or hiring a data science consultant.

Like the author says, there just aren't many posts about this. Almost four years into starting Fishtown Analytics, I believe more than ever that there is an incredible amount of demand for data talent, and more willingness than ever to source that talent externally. If you've ever considered going out on your own, I very much recommend it, and this post is a great resource.
