    The role of efficiency, automation, & collaboration in the modern sales era w/ Peter Kazanjy, Co-founder & CRO of Atrium

    The role of efficiency, automation, & collaboration in the modern sales era w/ Peter Kazanjy, Co-founder & CRO of Atrium

    It’s always fun to reflect on how far we’ve come since the beginning – especially when it comes to sales, sports, and, of course, Census. Joining me on this journey is Peter Kazanjy, one of Census’s first customers! He also happens to be the co-founder and CRO of Atrium, a data-driven sales management software that helps sales managers use data to improve team performance.

    In this episode, Peter and I chat about how the sales industry has evolved with the increasing availability of data and automation. We explore the past and present state of sales, including how it has transformed into a little revenue factory with a bunch of human-occupied assembly lines.

    If you like actionable advice and sports analogies for the data-driven sales world, this episode is for you.

    Getting to the “science” in data science w/ Sarah Krasnik, data consultant & advisor

    Getting to the “science” in data science w/ Sarah Krasnik, data consultant & advisor

    What career path do you go down when blood churns your stomach? Data, of course. That’s where this week’s episode with data consultant and advisor, Sarah Krasnik, started: discussing how her exposure to cognitive science at John’s Hopkins (paired with a squeamishness for blood) left her looking for another way to influence people’s perception of the world with logic and information. So, she pursued data science.

    Leading a data engineering team at PerPay – an all-in-one FinTech app providing underserved consumers with an easy way to make purchases, pay over time, & build credit – inspired Sarah to jump into freelance consulting work so she could start hacking away at some side projects. Because of that work, she’s gained knowledge in tons of different data-related areas.

    So, if you enjoy some healthy debates and hearing opposing opinions, you’ll like this episode. Is data science really a science? What do you think about the no-code movement? Is it feasible for UI to be improved with “power features”? Listen in as we tackle all this and more.

    Tipping points: How individual decisions make big impacts in data careers & data teams w/ Emily Hawkins, data engineering manager @ Drizly (LIVE @ Summer Community Days)

    In this never-been-done-in-the-history-of-The-Sequel-Show episode, we’re bringing you a live recording from our data community event, Summer Community Days. In case you missed it, Summer Community Days was our two-day, free, virtual & practitioner-first conference that presented community expert sessions, keynotes, data hackathons, and local IRL happy hours in major US cities. This episode, featuring Emily Hawkins, was the keynote session kicking off the conference.

    As the data engineering manager at Drizly, an online alcohol ordering and delivery platform, Emily has the insight to satisfy your curiosity and answer all those burning alcohol-delivery questions you have (no pun intended).

    What was the most popular kind of alcohol that people gifted this year? What is the most popular time to place an order on Drizly? What day did you usually receive the most orders in 2021? Listen up, because we’re bringing you the answers to all these questions – and more! If you missed this keynote (or just want to relisten), here’s your chance.

    How an understanding of human psychology can create an impactful data story w/ Jessica Zhang, data scientist @ Notion

    How an understanding of human psychology can create an impactful data story w/ Jessica Zhang, data scientist @ Notion

    We’re taking data down a different path than usual this week on The Sequel Show. For EP 25, I spoke with Jessica Zhang, data scientist at Notion, a collaboration software hub for users to write, plan, and get organized. Although Jessica started with an “on-the-fly” decision to join a financial institution after college, it allowed her to learn all the data analysis bells and whistles and taught her how to connect the dots in large corporations.

    Of course, she evolved as the economy evolved, making carefully planned out career jumps to see all the different facets of the data industry, and inspiring our wide-ranging conversation. In this unique episode, we discuss the differences between banking and tech data roles, the distinction between consumer and investment banking, the importance of statistical rigor when managing data, the role that persuasion and psychology play in data, how you can use these to improve interconnectivity between departments, and what B2B SaaS can learn from B2C.

    Building a culture that prioritizes learning opportunities w/ Scott Breitenother, founder and CEO of Brooklyn Data Co.

    Building a culture that prioritizes learning opportunities w/ Scott Breitenother, founder and CEO of Brooklyn Data Co.

    This week’s episode is a great one if you feel like you could use some guidance in your data career. For EP 24, I chatted with Scott Breitenother, Founder and CEO of Brooklyn Data Co., a data and analytics consultancy that helps your team build a full modern data stack specific to your needs.

    While Scott might be deemed “unhireable”, the skills he gained during his early years of management consulting experience (conducting quantitative analysis, structuring unstructured problems, and creating something out of nothing) are what makes Brooklyn Data Co. so good at what they do. In the episode, we take a look at Scott’s career journey, what makes management consulting so intense, the importance of tool conventions, prioritizing career learning over your salary, why your track record and wisdom are more important than your title, and how to empower others through data.

    Building a better future for interviewing and evaluating technical talent w/ David Corea, senior analytics manager at CoderPad

    Building a better future for interviewing and evaluating technical talent w/ David Corea, senior analytics manager at CoderPad

    This week’s episode is a great one if you or your team is focused on hiring data practitioners this year (like most teams). For EP 23, I had the chance to sit down with David Corea, senior analytics manager at CoderPad, a technical assessment software aimed at improving how we interview technical candidates.

    While CoderPad isn’t specific to interviewing data practitioners, it’s a great example of one of the many ways the data industry can learn from the best practices of the software engineering world. In the episode, we look at how CoderPad uses data to improve their product, how we as interviewers can minimize interview stress, how to measure learning in an organization obsessed with progress, and the importance of the five whys.
