We’re excited to welcome Justin Gage,(@jgage718) Data Scientist extraordinaire at DigitalOcean as our curator this week! We asked Justin to tell us about himself, and this is what he said:
I was part of the first graduating data science major class at NYU’s business school. Worked in venture capital for a bit, and then finally got a chance to work with data at a company I liked.
I like the data field because of the strong community and the relationships that you get to build – if you play your cards right, you can work with all different groups at your company and support them in interesting ways. It’s sort of like being an internal consultant
I support the product group at DigitalOcean, working on analysis and modeling that helps us figure out how people use our products and how we can make our user experience best in class. Cloud is cool and important because it makes up the building blocks for all of the different things people want to build with software. DO has (I think) the best UX for people like data scientists working on their own projects. I also freelance a bunch building content and dataviz for growing companies.
As far as hobbies go, I’m really into sneakers (I collect Common Projects), guitar, and dataviz.
A day off? Oh, that’s a good one. It’s mostly food, some reading, a long walk, music, and shopping
Please welcome Justin to Real Scientists!
