In this interview we focus on careers helping companies to implement data storage solutions and organize their data so that it provides actionable intelligence for decision makers.
Jared talks about how expertise in this career field can be extremely lucrative. In Jared's case, he was introduced to big data analytics during a project he was working on in college. His interest in the field grew. As Jared become more interested he worked in a number of different roles in the field until he found himself in his current role, as a Vice President at Inticity.
