Before this endeavor, I was a quantitative researcher at a big financial company. I wrote computer programs to sift through huge piles of data and find important relationships within that data. It was a pretty cool job actually.
When the financial crisis hit, the firm dissolved my group and, like many others across the country, I was left asking what's next? So I started the daunting process of looking for a new job in the toughest job market since the Great Depression.
I grew tired of spending hours searching through job boards, looking for roles that might fit. I didn't like the way that jobs were posted to the world, and it was up to dumb luck to stumble upon what could be my next dream job.
What I needed was a better tool to find jobs that fit me. Something that looked over the available universe of jobs and honed in on what I was best at.
So I took what I knew from my previous role and started looking for meaningful relationships between what I was interested in and what was out there.
In the process, I found really meaningful jobs, jobs that absolutely fascinated me.
