Welcome to episode #23 of the SnackWalls Podcast.
I love talking with folks like David that have experience within the walls and supporting many tech organizations.
David shares one of the core values of 4 Mile Analytics is Diversity. They are actively working on diversifying their talent base because the real work that they do is putting talented people in front of clients, helping understand what's the problem behind the problem, and deliberately working towards the best possible solution. He explains that often you're working with people who have different points of view, have different life experiences. That diversity of experiences can really be helpful when you're trying to solve problems. David has some experience with mentorship and apprenticeship patterns where early-career folks were doing more pairing work and finding opportunities to get into a mentor, mentee relationship with mid and senior-level engineers.
David Stocker is the Director of Engineering at 4 Mile Analytics. David is an accomplished Software Engineering Manager. He has helped technology organizations mature its people, process, and technology from a start-up to mid-size enterprise. He has had stints at AWS, Cambia Health, and Renew Financial. He started his career in Urban and Regional Planning and has transitioned to Data Analytics in the tech space.
