Our team of specialists represents many scientific disciplines, including mathematics, data analysis, programming, linguistics, and many others. Besides working on products and technologies at Yandex, some of our experts teach, lecture and train students and young specialists.
We run our own educational programs. The Yandex School of Data Analysis, offering free courses for university graduates and senior students, has been running since 2007. The school trains specialists in internet data processing, data analysis and fact extraction. The school’s graduates find employment at Yandex and many other companies. Yandex also has schools for project managers, user interface developers and other specialists in IT. We also partner with Russia’s leading research centres and universities, including the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology and the Higher School of Economics. Yandex’s experts give lectures to high school students. We sponsor a number of school contests in computer programming, mathematics and linguistics.
Russia's largest technology conference, Yet another Conference, which is organised by Yandex every year, gathers industry experts from all over the world. We also run scientific conferences on machine learning, as well as seminars, lectures, workshops and master classes for those who wish to make or have already made a career in the internet industry.
