Jumping Rivers is an analytics company whose passion is data and machine learning. We help our clients move from data storage to data insights.

Here at Jumping Rivers, we love data science. One of the huge benefits of data science is transparency. For example, R. Being an open-source language, it immediately is giving something back to the community that propels it to the top of the data science ladder. Just like the world of data science, our ethos is transparency and giving back to the community.

We don’t just provide training and consultancy, you know? Our team run events such as the Data Science Meetup in Leeds and Newcastle. We’re constantly writing blog posts on methods for improving your programming habits. These posts are then syndicated by sites such as python- and r-bloggers.
