Zindi Inter-University Umoja Hackathon

African Bank’s Executive of Credit and Data Science, Vere Millican says African Bank is delighted to be involved with the first-ever Zindi Inter-University Umoja Hackathon. “Just this month African Bank welcomed 38 new data scientist trainees into our growing team. We now have a total of 77 data science professionals, 20 of which are currently attending the Explore Data Science Academy. We are committed to upskilling and employing brilliant data scientists and welcome opportunities like this to develop and find young talent. What better platform than a competition which showcases the skills of the best talent across Africa. To maximise our data science capabilities across internal and external networks, we have created the ‘Data Distillery @ AB’ to hone the skills of exciting new data science talent to solve real-world business problems in innovative ways.”
