Data Visualization Specialist

Data is our core DNA

About Project X

We work with clients to solve problems and gain insight through the use of data and analytics.  Our clients give us their most challenging situations and no problem is too big or small for our team.

Every day at Project X is a call to address the challenges our clients have. That’s the life of a team of trusted advisors creating data and analytics solutions for complex client problems.  We do this through collaboration, creativity and an innate need to solve tough data problems.  

Data can be messy and problematic and our teams generally land somewhere in the middle of it.  And that’s where the passion comes in; to work at Project X you must share our obsession for the essence of data, to break through and make sense of it all, and of course add value at every stage of the process.

Data is our core DNA. What makes Project X unique is our custom methodology that delivers results rapidly and allows for our team’s creativity to solve the problems we’re trusted to work on.  This, paired with the fact that data runs deep in our veins and is what makes up who we are, individually and as a team, allows us to do the work we’re passionate about.  It is the foundation that translates into a common understanding, a way of being, that is apparent not just to us at Project X, but to our clients.

What we do

At Project X, we work side-by-side with our clients to create a tailored approach that meets their needs. From strategy through execution to delivery, Project X works with our clients to achieve results in a quick and cost-effective manner using our rapid results methodology. This approach defines our success and sets us apart.
