Broad experience, deep impact


We bring the expertise to use data to its potential, and the experience to build simple solutions that work.

What we do


Holistic data assessment & planning

What can you do with your data? We conduct top to bottom inventories of data sources and systems to identify strengths, challenges, and opportunities — all with an eye to your core objectives.

Predictive modeling & statistical analysis

We use battle-tested mathematical analysis techniques to help you carry out your mission more effectively in a resource constrained environment. We know that overly complicated solutions can be hard to support, so we’ll find the most robust and maintainable approach to help you make better decisions.

Rapid development & prototyping

We have deep roots in software engineering. We build quickly and iteratively, working closely with your team to design modern web applications and streamlined data processing systems that can connect data sources, test new ideas, and quickly deliver solutions to the field.

Dynamic visualization & data-driven storytelling

Using data to drive understanding means taking it out of tables. We work with modern tools to visualize data in a way that illuminates what’s going on underneath. Whether automating dashboards from streaming metrics or developing interactive, web-based figures that enable users to explore their own questions further, we help our partners tell stories through data.

The problem of getting started

Something we hear all the time: “I get that my data can help me. I’m just not sure exactly what the next steps should be.” There is plenty of talk about how data is changing what organization can do. The question is not whether there’s opportunity. The question is what concrete steps can my organization take, now, to realize that potential. The organizations that don’t will quickly fall behind.

Relax, we've got this

We know that bringing in outside help can add time and worry to an already packed plate. And we know the relief when someone brings needed expertise and gets the job done right. At DrivenData, we have years of experience working closely with our clients to define the right scope for their goals. We work thoughtfully to minimize the burden on our partners and deliver well-designed, accessible solutions that your team will be able to maintain after the project is finished.

Turn your business goals into a data science project

Do you have a vision for what’s possible with the right team? We know that good data scientists are hard to find and can be hard to manage if you don’t know what to expect. We provide the technical expertise and manage effective data science projects end-to-end. We work flexibly with our partners to translate business goals into the project scope and technical approach that’s the best fit for their needs and their budget.

Data science competitions


For the thorniest predictive modeling problems — particularly those involving social impact and where public awareness is an objective — we can take the problem solving global. Our crowdsourcing platform enables thousands of data scientists all over the world to compete in finding the very best mathematical models, often pushing solutions to the theoretical boundary between signal and noise. These models can then be operationalized for use on the front lines.
