Each week at Brooks Bell, we have a short meeting Friday morning with the entire team. During the meeting we get updates on tests and the company, and award a “Star of the Week.”
This week, our Star is new member of the team, Reid Bryant! As our in-house Data Scientist, Reid tackles big projects, lends a hand with analysis, and is currently working on developing new data models for all our teams.. Congratulations Reid!
Which of Brooks Bell’s core values resonates with you the most?
Pursue Knowledge. Its energizing to leverage recently acquired knowledge to improve existing processes or create new things.
What piece of advice would you give to aspiring data scientists or those new to the field?
Understand the business objectives of your modeling efforts. The most useful models are the ones that actually get deployed.
What do you do outside of work? Any hobbies?
I love spending time with my wife, our two month old son, and our black lab. If it happens to be at the beach or the lake, even better.
The Brooks Bell Star of the Week is a team member who has gone above and beyond typical expectations during the week. The award is designed to empower our team and ensure everyone’s hard work is appreciated and recognized.
The winner receives a large trophy they get to keep for the entire week, fully equipped with extra Nerf darts (extra protection for those impromptu Nerf wars). They also get the honor of selecting the following week’s winner.
Sound like fun? Check to see if we’re hiring.
