About & Contact


Hello there, and welcome to my website!

My name is Artemio Rimando, and I am in the early stages of my career as a Data Scientist. I am currently employed at Merchant Advance Capital, a Canadian alternative business lending financing company which is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. I intend to use this website to blog about my professional learning experiences, and as a medium to present my work.

I obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Honours Mathematical Economics at the University of Waterloo, and my Masters of Arts in Economics at the University of Toronto. My education has equipped me with a strong breadth of knowledge and hands-on experience in mathematics, statistics, and programming. It has also allowed me to thrive in team-based projects by working positively and communicating effectively.

My ongoing projects and accomplishments include the production and implementation of Merchant Advance Capital’s proprietary risk prediction models. I made significant contributions to the streamlining of front-end operations by increasing efficiency in credit analysis thereby increasing potential sources of revenue. I heavily influenced business policies surrounding product pricing, and utilized several different technologies to enhance data analysis workflow.

As part of one of the fastest-growing companies in Canada, I look to deepen my knowledge and skills in applied data science and risk analysis. By acting within an interdepartmental data support role, I seek to broaden my field knowledge and think of ways to make executive-level data-driven decisions. I am enthusiastic about making significant positive impacts to the company and extremely excited to grow with it.

On my spare time, I like playing board games of deception, getting a good workout at the gym, and dancing on weekend evenings. 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.

I am always open to having discussions surrounding the data scientist career path, engaging in applied data science, and learning about the alternative business financing industry. Please feel free to contact me using the form below or via LinkedIN, or Twitter.
