Hear it from the team
I work with our clients to understand their key business questions and challenges, using consumer data and predictive analysis tools to help answer them – from analysing viewer reactions to a major Blockbuster film, refining new alcohol brand concepts to predicting the next Food and Beverage trends. It’s great to work alongside such smart people who have a real collaborative approach, driving us forward each day.Lauren Warnock, Insights Team, London
It’s my job to make sure the data science team have the space and freedom to create awesome (and robust!) technology to solve some of the toughest problems in our industry. This means I get to learn new things nearly every day and have the privilege to work with some of the smartest people I’ve ever met – the team and culture which underpin this are amazing.Markus Frise, Data Science Team, London
My core focus is creating an even more collaborative and efficient place to work – be that mapping out our internal processes or setting a standard for how information is communicated and when. It’s the challenge and the hustle that I like most; it’s a privilege and forces you to level-up. Plus, everyone’s so excited about what they do and truly pride themselves on their ability to share and teach.Taraneh Khosrowshahi, Operations Team, New York
My role is to manage the Engineering team in Budapest. It’s such a unique environment where Producer/Development/QA teams are genuinely operating as one and have full trust in each other. There’s a strong focus on self-development too; we encourage each other to come up with new tricks that can be used in our projects or during our regular Tony Hawk Pro Skater showdowns at the office.Gergely Sipos, Engineering Team, Budapest
My role is to keep everything running smoothly - anything from stocking the office fridges to organising travel, diary management and addressing client requests. Everyone’s so driven and passionate about what BSD are moving towards and achieving, there is so much support in the office. Equally, we understand the importance of enjoying work and having fun while getting tasks done.Tamsin Horn Office Team, London

Your Journey, your development
Learning is everywhere, it is what you make it…
At Black Swan we have a 70:20:10 development concept.
The majority - 70% of learning comes through experience – you rolling up your sleeves and getting your hands dirty on day one: experimentation, learning, success.
Around 20% comes from learning with/ from feedback through your coaches, peers, team mates and buddies.
10% through engaging formal learning in the right training, at the right time - such as online courses, conferences, and workshops.
There are countless ways to thrive at Black Swan.
