Wesley Cooper, Data Architect

Describe your job in three words:

Scalability, Reliability and Insight

What is the most exciting thing you are working on?

The latest iteration of our Rules Engine will have many innovative features. Working to realise the full potential of this product by focusing on externalised business logic and future enhancements, such as machine learning and natural language processing, has been very rewarding.

How has your background helped with your role in AQMetrics?

With a background designing and creating quantitative data models with Paddy Power and large real-time data processing systems with Verizon, I draw heavily from my experience in the design of our software stack. Everything at AQMetrics is built with the future in mind which is why there is a huge focus on best practice, best technologies and doing things the right way.

Best thing about working in AQMetrics?

I really enjoy being part a highly committed and tight-knit team here at AQMetrics, however, it’s the support that you get from all functions across the company which makes it a special place to work.

Who would you most like to swap places with for the day and why?

A personal hero of mine is San Antonio Spurs Head Coach Gregg Popovich. Trading places with one of his assistants for the day would be an incredible way to learn leadership, team-building and mentorship from one of the greats
