For over ten years, I spent building data warehouses, ETL and database applications using commerical software. For the last few years, I have dabbled around in a few open source technologies (Python / R / PostgreSQL). While building these database applications, I am most facinated, when someone makes sense of the data and finds a interesting story that was there to be discovered. I am looking to join a team that finds stories in data.

Tools

  • Experienced: Python (Web Dev, Scientific Stack), JavaScript, SQL, ETL, Data Warehousing
  • Used: PostgreSQL, MS SQL BI, SAP BI, Tableau, Cognos BI, Informatica, R-Statistics
  • Recent: Hadoop, Hive, Pig, HBase, Elastic MapReduce, AWS Redshift, Spark, D3.js, Scala
  • Cloud Computing: AWS, Google App Engine, Rackspace

Conferences

Because a large part of open source software is about the community, I went to a number of conferences to meet people and learn what problems excite the community.
