Hiring Partners

Hire a diverse range of highly skilled individuals in AI and Data Science

By becoming a hiring partner, you can access the Athena Pathways job board to post internship and full time positions, and you can apply to receive funding under one of the following internship and project placement programs.

Project Placements

By spring of 2021 we will be placing machine learning and data science Masters and PhD students into industry as well as highly qualified mid-career product, software and project managers who have taken accelerated machine learning training courses with our university partners. These women will be ready to take on project roles and potentially long-term engagements with salaries subsidized 43% up to 18 weeks and a maximum of $17,000. If you have projects or long-term roles that could employ talented individuals from either of these groups - or ideally both - we would encourage you to apply for this program by ticking the Athena Digital Leaders box in the form below. 

There is more information available on the program here.

Become an Athena Pathways Hiring Partner

How It Works

Hiring partners with the Athena Pathways project, a consortium of 12 partners ("Athena"), are required to agree to the following terms to participate.

As a hiring partner, you may post a job on the Athena job board, currently at no charge, and we will provide you with applications from applicants who have applied for your job. You do not make any commitment to hire any applicants in this program and you can have any applicants go through your regular hiring process after we introduce them to you. Upon agreeing to be a hiring partner, we will list your logo and name on our website as a hiring partner. The expectation is that hiring partners will promote Athena in their marketing channels such as social media. If possible, we request that you also indicate on your Careers page that you are an Athena hiring partner (we can provide you with the Athena logo if you wish to use it for this purpose). You may withdraw from being a hiring partner at any time by emailing us.
