What people are saying about Jacob Walker, and Data Actionism:
My business is to optimize online advertising for ecommerce companies. This is all done through various forms of data analysis where we can increase a company’s profits through statistical and experimental methodologies. Jacob is one of those rare people with whom I can talk through ideas and methods before we implement them. He has also repeatedly helped me with using Excel more effectively for advanced analysis.
Our school recently switched the SIS we use to PowerSchool. As my employment began around the time of the transition, a large part of my role has been SIS administration and report generation, alongside Jacob. Prior to that, Jacob was successful in transferring all our data from the old SIS to PowerSchool. PowerSchool is famous for its customizability and due to Jacob’s work in the back end, we currently have a far improved product from the one we purchased just 9 months ago.
Jacob is one of the most skilled people I’ve had the pleasure of working with and knowing. Whether it be data science, programming, or education, Jacob seems to always have it in the bag. His dedication to his work shows with his incredible learning skills and knowledge. Jacob can truly overcome any task that comes before him, and it was an honor to have him mentor me to learn those great traits.
Jacob Walker is dedicated to serving the common good and promoting social change. I would highly recommend Jacob to any visionary organization that wants someone who is willing to think in new ways and help their team to achieve its full potential.
