A decentralised world of work
The startup will offer data strategy services to prepare a medium and long-term vision of data use, data governance to ensure the best possible access to its data, data engineering around the themes of large-scale data collection, storage and analysis, as well as artificial intelligence so that clients can access predictive models.
Data analysts, cloud and infrastructure engineers, and development teams will work in a completely decentralised world, with offices scattered around the globe like the satellite offices of the Big Four. Then they will be able to work four days a week.

HumanTech Partners has also set up a collective shareholding plan, a tool used to increase the involvement of employees in projects and build loyalty.
