I had an epiphany during my morning commute last week (don’t you love it when that happens?): Our growth team should be a beacon, an intentionally inconspicuous device designed to attract attention to a specific location.
Aspirational, right? As usual, the hard part is setting out to actually do it. Only two short weeks ago, I joined Astronomer to scale our growth team. For newcomers to Astronomer, like me, it’s important to understand why what we’re tackling is so important, and therefore, why my mission feels personal.
We’ve heard about big data ad nauseum—and we get it, data is everywhere and we need it to make better-directed decisions for our business (and life for that matter!). At the same time, there’s a ton of people like me: non-technical quant analysis folks who need a data infrastructure that’s scalable yet flexible and, most importantly, accessible. I am the future of your workforce. I—and so many like me—need Astronomer to grow.
