Employer Testimonials

It’s been enriching to have a 10 Academy graduate on board working with me on a start up. Beyond her obvious readiness for work, I’ve been particularly impressed by her initiative, creativity and approach to problem solving. In a start up context with lots of moving parts, she has demonstrated adaptability, with strong communication, analytical and team work skills.  I would recommend hiring from 10 Academy to others strongly and without hesitation.

Prof. Tolu Oni
Principal, Urban Better

10 Academy has helped us develop an exceptional Data Science team from scratch. The calibre of candidates has been phenomenal and not only enhanced our technical ability but also our company culture. I would absolutely recommend hiring from 10 Academy to others.

Dr. Jacques Kotze
President and co-Founder, Adludio

Our 10 Academy graduate jumped immediately into wrestling with complex research questions without hesitation. From day one, her work has been useful in moving our research project forward.  Her ability to absorb and teach herself information independently is a great asset that enabled her to quickly start producing useful work in a domain that was new for her.  Based on this graduate's high potential, deep work ethic, and high quality work,  I would highly recommend 10 Academy graduates to other employers.
