Data dream teams: TripActions

Rob is the Director of Data at TripActions and is leading the company's data initiatives across engineering, BI, data science, and data education. Prior to working at TripActions, he had been leading teams in the data space for almost fifteen years across a number of industries including travel, telecommunications, consumer goods, and gaming.

Bart is a data analyst at TripActions with a background in finance. Prior to this, Bart built his career as a business analyst and uses this foundation to partner with TripActions' Operations and Customer Success teams

Viriginia is a Software Engineer that is deeply interested and passionate about software development.

Teodora is a data scientist specializing in recommendation systems at TripActions. Prior to this, Teodara built her career as a statistician and analyst, working across a number of different industries, including healthcare and marketing research.

Simon works on the Product team at Fishtown, taking the lead on their flagship SaaS offering, dbt Cloud, helping to unlock the frankly scary transformational potential of dbt to a broader population of analysts, business leaders, and organizational lynchpins. He joins Fishtown after overseeing the analytics function at a major multi-brand fully-remote SaaS startup. He lives in the foothills of the Adirondacks with his partner and two kiddos: when he’s not working on dbt, he’s growing heirloom tomatoes or baking sourdough baguettes.
