About Scry Analytics:

Scry Analytics (www.scryanalytics.com) provides Big Data Science solutions to do predictive and prescriptive analytics (i.e., to "forecast the future") and our aim is to:

* Codify work-flows in the services industries so that they are well-defined & repeatable.

* Collate and harmonize client's data that is required for such work-flow systems.

* Provide Scry Analytics' proprietary data that improves the key performance indicators and the characteristics of such work-flow systems.

* Use our proprietary Big Data Science platform as well as deep Computer Science & Math algorithms to build decision support systems that improve the metrics related to these work-flows.

Although Scry Analytics provides analytics and Big Data Science services, our aim is to minimize these services by providing automation and software solutions (where we can). We are currently solving problems in the following domains:

* Retail

* Banking and Insurance

* Inventory & Transportation of After Market Parts; Maintenance

* Utilities and Telecom

* Health care

Since most techniques that Scry Analytics is using are taken from cutting-edge research, the kind of solutions that Scry Analytics is building are unlikely to be built by companies that provide data analysts in a staff augmentation mode or those that provide IT professionals. So, we are looking for Bachelors, Masters, and PhDs in computer science, data analytics or math that have a "research" or "advanced development" bent.
