After barely graduating college, in 2011 Vik Paruchuri found himself working for the US Foreign Service. Bored, he taught himself how to code before venturing into the world of data science and machine learning.
After winning several Kaggle competitions, EdX hired Vik as a machine learning engineer. At EdX, Vik observed how technology could provide an alternative to the traditional education system.
Based on the many lessons he learned on his own journey, along with his observations about how successful data scientists learn, Vik started building Dataquest in 2015. It now has over 100,000 students worldwide.
