In his Words

I started school hoping to explore the converging worlds of finance and economics and the technological revolution which is transforming it, and began to realize a pattern. In a sector where information is priceless, big data is supplying large profits to those able to able to gain insights from the organized chaos. Intrigued, and yearning to learn more, I joined Hootsuite to learn how technology companies turn data into information, and the trends to look out for in this fastmoving field.

On my first day at Hootsuite, I was thrown immediately into a new initiative to provide data for a new analytical platform being rolled out to project managers and analysts. I was lucky enough to experience the entire lifecycle of the project, and contribute to all facets of the pipeline. Throughout this initiative, I have gained an understanding and appreciation for the dangers and nuances in datarelated infrastructure design, and peeked under the veil covering the blackbox of big dataprocessing and analytics.
