As a remote-first company, CRD organizes offsites for the team to get to know each other away from their keyboards. This year, the team met in Newport, Rhode Island for sailing lessons and dinner together.

After the Great Resignation, many tenured data science professionals gave up on traditional hierarchies in favor of a more impactful career. CRD arose out of this historic moment, and we understand the career priorities of exceptional engineers, allowing CRD to recruit only extraordinary talent.

We are a team of builders and tech enthusiasts, and we use our passion and expertise for data to create exponential results for our clients.

Gleb Drobkov & Mike Dezube founded CRD after leaving BCG and Google respectively. Both went to Cornell University for their undergraduate degrees (Industrial Labor Relations & Operations Research and Information Engineering), and graduate degrees (MBA & Systems Engineering).
