About the Network - Based in the Harvard Innovation Lab, Experfy was created with the purpose of providing human talent to help organizations optimize their hiring of data experts and solutions providers. Experfy brings together the world's most prestigious analytics talent that not only possesses algorithmic skills but also deep domain knowledge.
Consultant Profile - Experts are analytics professionals with deep domain knowledge in one or more industries and multiple technologies. Areas of focus include Customer Analytics, Marketing Analytics, Market Research, Web Analytics, Social Media & Text Analytics, Pricing & Sales Analytics, Operations, Fraud & Risk, Internet of Things, Visualizations, HR Analytics, Retail Analytics, Healthcare Analytics, Pharma & Life Sciences, and Sports Analytics. Technology includes Big Data & Technology, Business Intelligence & Data Warehousing, Data Integration & Management, Predictive Analytics & Forecasting, AWS & Cloud, Data-Driven Apps, and Mobility & Analytics.
How It Works - Experts register, login, and create a profile. Experts can build both company profiles or individual profiles. Profiles should include your experience, education, and other credentials that inspire confidence in your abilities. You can also record a video pitch to better engage potential clients.
Opportunities range from hourly projects to fixed-price projects. There are two kinds of engagements facilitated by the platform. For short-term projects, you can submit a proposal and go through a selection process.
If you are interested in a long-term virtual engagement, Experfy will connect you to companies looking to augment their team.
Experts can collaborate using an enterprise-ready dashboard and data tools to create a private work environment to collaborate with clients through an on-site messaging system and file sharing. Experts can invite existing or new team members to the ProjectRoom and use collaboration tools to deliver against specific milestones.
Opportunities - Opportunites fall into two categories - short term projects and long-term opportunities. Short term projects are listed on the website with instructions on how to apply. For long-term opportunities, contact Experfy and they will connect you with companies looking to augment their capabilities.
How to sign-up - Experts can view projects and register online.
Payment - Experfy handles all financial transactions, sending secure payments to experts and solution providers across the globe. Payment terms for each milestone are negotiated between the client and the solutions provider. Once a milestone is met and accepted by the client, a payment is made to your account. When POs are involved, the client's contract with you dictates the payment terms.
Experfy adds a 20% service fee to your hourly or fixed price quote.
