Jonathan’s Story
Deciphering Data
Jonathan always felt drawn to solving problems, so studying math was an obvious choice—Arabic, however, was a surprise addition to his college education. Once he started working at a telecommunications company, Jonathan moved toward data science and left the United States. Luckily, he had already mastered the critical thinking needed to excel in an autonomy-driven culture.

What Jonathan Does
Data Scientist
Jonathan heads right to the coffee bar after biking to work each day so that he’s well energized before digging into theories and numbers with his colleagues. In the morning, he handles ad hoc tasks that feed into larger projects—especially with machine learning on the team’s radar. Though he’s a problem-solving whiz, Jonathan values the team’s agile approach and collaborative habits.
 
 
“I had opportunities to learn—but I wanted to be challenged by colleagues who would push me and enable me to dig into problems differently.”

“I like that I get to solve problems that have an immediate business application. There’s a lot of empowerment here to just dig where the data takes you.”
