Our Humans of 3Q series continues this week with Angela Gomez, Business Intelligence Engineer, out of our Chicago office! Get to know Angela below:
Explain your role at 3Q in 3 sentences or less:
I’m an Engineer on the Business Intelligence team and get to focus on large-scale report automation! I’m often creating data visualizations or working with client services to implement new features.
What sets 3Q apart from other agencies in the industry?
The 3Q Decision Sciences team members are some of many who really help in setting us apart from other agencies. We offer reports and visualizations that make it easy for clients to understand their audience, and we are always looking to be a part of the next big thing in tech.
When coworkers come from other offices to visit, what is one thing they absolutely have to do in Chicago?
There are so many great restaurants in Chicago that going out to eat is definitely top priority. You always have to pay a visit to the bean, too, especially because it’s right down the street.
What is the last thing you read?
The Southern Reach Trilogy.
If you could choose any TV or movie world to live it, what would it be?
Anything where I get to be a mermaid.
What’s something that makes your office cooler than the other 3Q offices?
I basically live off of coffee, so it’s got to be the cold brew keg!
What’s been the coolest thing you’ve done with your unlimited PTO?
I’m actually in the Florida Keys right now!
What 3Q initiative outside of your job description are you most proud of being a part of?
I just joined the 3Q3% committee because of how well our event went back in April. I am looking forward to helping plan more great volunteer opportunities.
Have you participated in 3Q3%? If so, what’s been your favorite experience?
Back in April, we went to one of the Chicago Youth Centers. We got to work with a group of girls called the Tinkerbelles who are exploring the STEM fields. It was really rewarding to work with what could be some of the future women in tech!
How do you spend your free time?
I spend a lot of time doing sketch art, watching terrible movies, and checking out events around the city.
Throughout your career, who have been some of your biggest muses, supporters, and role models?
Some of the most influential and supportive people of my career were my first manager as I started working with data, and my current manager as an Engineer. Both always supported my goals, learned how to work with me as an individual, and taught me so much about how to be successful in this industry.
