Dataspace was founded by data engineering and analytics experts. Our staffing and recruiting services grew organically from our consulting work. Now we are 100% focused on helping our clients build their data dream teams, in all industries, across the U.S. We are also a remote-friendly workplace, with team members located in Michigan and Virginia.
Describing himself as a recovering CPA, Ben served as an accountant and auditor early in his career. He quickly shifted careers to his primary interest of information technology, data management, and decision support techniques. Before starting Dataspace, a data and analytics consulting/staffing and recruiting company, he was an early employee of business intelligence pioneer MicroStrategy. He now also oversees Golden Record, a cloud-based data matching, deduplication, and analysis tool which grew out of needs he saw in his various consulting assignments.
Ben has led efforts in the fields of analytics, data management, and data warehousing for over 30 years and has coauthored three books on the topic, Oracle 8 Data Warehousing, Oracle 8I Data Warehousing, and SQL Server 7 Data Warehousing, the first two in the Oracle Press series and the last published by the Osborne division of McGraw Hill. He speaks frequently and advises major corporations and charitable organizations issues of analytics, data science, and data engineering strategy and team development.
Ben has a Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Business from Lehigh University and a Master of Business Administration from The University of Michigan.
Analytics Recruiting Team
For Charlotte, recruiting is about people. She loves that her work allows her to connect with people from across the country, with the potential of having a significant impact on their lives. As a recruiter, Charlotte soaks up new information like a sponge—she asks insightful questions, and is never afraid to dive in.
Charlotte graduated from Eastern Michigan University. She’s an avid reader and loves all things Star Trek. She and her partner are looking forward to reaching the “frisbee-throwing” age, but for now they are content to run around the park and pick up cool stones with their son.
So much of this process can be detached and faceless. It’s really nice to get to that point of connection with people, and then help them to achieve their career goals.
Chanée enjoys building relationships with people from all different backgrounds and then helping them connect with great opportunities. She knows that facilitating a successful career match can take persistence. No matter the hiring challenge, Chanée is up for it, with resilience and a warm sense of humor.
Chanée is a graduate of the University of Missouri-Columbia. Outside of work, she loves to read, discover new restaurants, and enjoy quality time with son, Easton, family, friends, and her dog, Roxy.
I love filling roles for clients that are important to their organization while also having the chance to help a candidate land their dream job. Makes you feel good when it aligns for both the company and candidate.
Katie previously led recruiting at Dataspace for more than five years. She loves solving the puzzle of meeting each of our clients’ unique needs, and has a knack for finding hidden gems when it comes to data talent. Her experienced and pragmatic approach means she considers a candidate from every angle, so she’s able to catch details other agencies miss. Katie also loves that her work keeps her on top of the latest technology and methods used in data-focused fields.
Katie completed her undergrad at the University of Michigan and is currently finishing up a Master’s degree at Wayne State University. She lives near her alma mater in Ann Arbor, MI. and enjoys hitting the local trails with her rescue dogs, Apple and Charlie.
It’s especially rewarding when I’m able to find an “outside-the-box” candidate who ends up being the perfect fit for a client’s role.
