The vision for this team is simple: provide insight and visibility into customers, prospects, partners, and competition - leveraging data, machine learning, and advanced analytics to help direct the company future and outsmart the competition.


Today, only a small percent of companies are truly “data-driven” in every aspect of their decision making - but 100% of the companies that thrive ten years from now will be data driven in the truest sense of the word.

We are looking for smart, capable, and driven individuals with a problem-solving and positive attitude, to help us lead this transformation.
