Seth Weidman

Data Scientist, Trunk Club

Chicago

Seth is a Data Scientist with a passion for helping businesses make better decisions, run more efficiently, and uncover opportunities. He graduated from the University of Chicago with a double major in Mathematics and Economics, and initially pursued this passion in Business Analysis roles, first at a consulting firm, The Cambridge Group, and then at Capital One. He soon realized how much more could be done with open source technologies and machine learning techniques available in languages like Python or R, than with tools like Excel and SPSS that he was used to. He taught himself to code in these languages, and to hone his skills, started doing data science consulting projects for Chicagoland startups, as well as working as a course assistant for Udacity. Eventually, he got the attention of the Data Science team at Trunk Club, where he has worked since January 2016. Outside of work, Seth enjoys playing Ultimate Frisbee and seeing (and occasionally performing in) improv comedy shows.
