A career decision that ticked all the right boxes.
The appeal of Blue Sky Analytics was instant.
After completing my masters in Applicable Mathematics from the London School of Economics (LSE), I returned to India, despite the insistence of many to stay back in London. However, I always knew I wanted to start my career in India- there is simply no match for the energy and potential of the human capital here! This belief was also strengthened during my undergrad in Mathematics from St. Stephen’s College, a premier institution offering the best quality education in India. I had the opportunity to be taught by experts and be a part of a diverse range of societies ranging from debating, quizzing to the environment.
I began searching for opportunities at various data analytics firms, that leveraged the power of data to transform the world. I was looking for an offer that was special, something that was difficult to say no to.
While dabbling in various directions, I was introduced to Blue Sky Analytics. It seemed to tick all the right boxes. The tech was innovative, the work environment was stimulating and accommodative and the future, very promising. After some initial research on Blue Sky’s cutting-edge space-tech and interactions with the super impressive team, I knew this is a journey I wanted to be a part of.
The interview process was creative and informal, which created an enabling environment for me to be my best while being assessed as a candidate. It also provided me with a deeper insight of what the company stands for and the global scale at which they are operating. By then I was superbly invested in Blue Sky Analytics’ goal of being the data backbone of a sustainable economy.
Since joining the strategy team, I have gained exposure that I had not dreamed of at this stage of my career. From attending the best networking events to strategizing core aspects of business development, the learning curve has been immense.
At Blue Sky Analytics, I am not only gaining a profound understanding of business strategy, but I am also able to make the most of my mathematical background by learning about the ground-breaking geospatial data refinery that the company is building. It has proved to be the perfect platform for me to launch my career as well as make a positive impact early on.
And then there’s the team.
The Blue Sky team undoubtedly represents the smartest young minds across disciplines. Working closely with designers, data scientists and developers has been an eye-opening experience for me- they’re delivering trailblazing products at great speed!
In just a short span of time, they have churned out a catalogue of high resolution, continuous environmental datasets and APIs that are widely being integrated across finance, policy and healthcare sectors. The first two products, BreeZo (smart air quality dataset) and Zuri (farm and forest fire tracking dashboard), even won us the ‘Space Oscars’ from the European Space Agency!
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” These words of Abraham Lincoln have been proven true by Blue Sky Analytics and resonate greatly with my experience as a team member.
The company is at the intersection of two incredibly exciting spaces that are going to define this decade - climate action and AI and its mission of building an environmental datastack is going to transform the world.
Blue Sky Analytics has been that special offer, the one I couldn’t say no to.
And I’m glad I didn’t.
