ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT - IUPUI

Gavin Burns
Data Science Intern

What do you study at IUPUI?: Finance & Quantitative Economics

How did you first hear about Red Tech?: Prior to my current role, I was in the Risk Management department for Red’s sister company, Spot. During that time, I used Red from an internal perspective.

What made you want to work at Red Tech and what keeps you here?: The two main reasons I wanted to work for Red Tech was the potential I saw in the product suite and the overall growth in logistics-based technology solutions. Red Tech has allowed my intellectual curiosity to run free; one moment I was pitching an idea/project,  and the following week I started working on it. Still, at the end of the day, nothing beats the interactions I have with my coworkers daily.

What does your day-to-day role look like here at Red Tech?: My day-to-day involves a lot of machine learning, model building, and testing. If I am not “patiently” waiting for a model to finish running, I am usually collecting and analyzing large datasets to further improve upon the results.

Describe Red Tech in one word: Gilfoyle, a fictional character from the show Silicon Valley
