CrossFit enthusiast, Marvel movie connoisseur, and Fuel Medical’s Business and Data Analyst, Evan Allan, dishes on what a day at the office actually looks like.
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I grew up in Vancouver, WA and attended Union High School. After graduating from Union High School I went to the University of Arizona in Tucson, AZ. I majored in Finance and minored in Mathematics, was a member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity, and played wing and center on the rugby team. I enjoy doing CrossFit every morning, reading, watching Marvel movies and cooking.
2. What is the most valuable resource you provide to our members?
I provide a fluency and in-depth knowledge of all the data we have from our external and internal software and applications. With this in-depth knowledge I can build custom reporting, identify trends, and benchmark current members’ performance indicators against their competitors and the industry. I also help bring efficiency to standard reporting by using MySQL and Python to help automate common reports.
3. What’s an everyday work day look like for you?
Normally I will start my day off with a quick stand up meeting with the development team and then we normally follow that up with an agile process meeting. After the morning meeting I will usually begin building and or completing the ad-hoc report requests from the previous couple days or that morning. I always try to take at least an hour to go through the code that I have built for prior projects to make sure it is up to date, and all bugs are taken care of.
4. What’s is your professional background?
In college I worked with the University of Arizona endowment fund to help keep a student ran portion of the portfolio filled with stocks and bonds that we believed through thorough analysis would keep up the portfolio growth year over year for the foreseeable future. After graduating I went and worked in financial consulting, specializing in helping Fortune 100 companies create, account, and forecast equity compensation plans.
5. Fun fact
I went bald at the age of 19.
