Meet Kathryn Bennett, Business Intelligence Developer at Populi. When she’s not smoothly and seamlessly implementing BI automation, you can find Kathryn indulging her creative side by reading the latest YA fantasy novel and jumping into new art mediums.
Q: What’s your role at Populi, and what does an average day look like for you?
A: I’m a Business Intelligence developer, and an average day for me involves implementing any meaningful automation we can think of, both for our content and our infrastructure. This helps our releases go faster with fewer opportunities for error and keeps our costs down. Everybody wins.
Q: What’s your favorite thing about working for Populi?
A: The entire company being fully remote. The flexibility means that we’re able to take better care of ourselves outside of work while also making us prioritize the time we get together. No double-booking or multitasking during meetings.
Q: What do you think is the most important benefit of the detailed healthcare analytics and insights that Populi provides?
A: Minimizing the time to action on a dataset. The amount of information available can be overwhelming, and I like that our dashboards help to show the most impactful path forward when you ask questions about your data.
Q: Why should someone join your team at Populi?
A: We solve interesting problems, and no one has to solve them alone. I learn something new almost every day, whether it’s for a task I’m working on or in a team-wide brainstorming session. And it’s not just limited to my team. If anyone in the company has experience with something you’re working on, the virtual doors are always open.
Q: What do you do in your free time?
A: In my free time, I am usually doing one of three things: making headway on the impossible task of reading every YA fantasy novel ever written or drawn; completing a Thomas Kinkade, Disney or Peanuts mosaic jigsaw puzzle; or doing a really deep dive on art supplies and techniques in a new medium that I will abandon about two months after I start.
Q: Do you have a favorite quote?
A: “It’s kind of fun to do the impossible.” — Walt Disney
Q: Who would play you in the movie of your life?
A: Can I get Quinta Brunson?
Q: If you came back in your next life as an animal, what animal would you be?
A: An indoor cat in a house in a warm (not hot) climate with lots of windows. I would nap in every sun patch.
