About

Hello there, and welcome to my website!

Pronouns: He / his / him

My name is Artemio Rimando, and I am in the early stages of my career as a Data Scientist. I am currently employed at Cisco Systems Canada – Vancouver AI Lab, headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. I intend to use this website to blog about my professional learning experiences, as a medium to present my work and a way to share my life experiences.

I have about 4 years of experience as a Data Scientist across various fields. I begun my career in Vancouver as a Data Scientist for two and a half years within the financial industry after graduating with a Master’s degree in Economics at the University of Toronto. I then joined the mobile gaming industry for about a year and am now part of a global technology company specializing in hardware/software products for networking, telecommunications, collaboration and security. I am highly interested in building data products that significantly contribute to business goals, boost operational and decision-making efficiency, and present beautiful visualizations to tell engaging stories.

Having started my career in a start-up environment, I enthusiastically love working with individuals that have great ideas, take calculated risks to execute those ideas, and are not afraid to ask questions. I am a proponent of the creative-thinking process because of the vast amount of learning. Through this process, I have gained experience building and validating machine learning models that increased loan conversions which minimized losses and generated more revenue. I have also learned to process large amounts of data and analyze them using various technologies.

On my spare time, I like playing board games of deception, getting a good workout at the gym, and playing the Nintendo Switch. I am an avid Big Brother Canada fan, a Pokemon geek since I was four years-old, and thoroughly enjoy play-on-words and puns.
