Data Storytelling Challenge: Rolls-Royce

rolls royce_datacomp_26jan18At Rolls-Royce, we collect and analyse vast quantities of data every day. We use this data to generate insights to improve the way our aviation customers plan and manage their operations. But this only happens is our customers can understand these insights. Our challenge is to present the intelligence hidden in the data in a user-friendly way.

That’s why we’ve launched the Data Storytelling Challenge. Working with a data set we give you for a fictional airline, we want you to create a visualisation that tells a complex data story. It doesn’t matter if you’re an engineer, an artist, a computer scientist, a mathematician or a languages student. As long as you can find an interesting and engaging way to visualise data, we want to hear from you.

If you win, you’ll join us for an internship to turn your idea into reality. And if that goes well, it could just be the start of your relationship with Rolls-Royce.

Are you up for the challenge?  Visit: careers.rolls-royce.com/dsc to find out more.  The Competition closes: 26 January 2018.
