Hayden Ygartua is not only a self-proclaimed big data wrangler, he pays attention to the small stuff, too. That comes in mighty handy with his work reviewing Vigilant’s affirmative action plan data for accuracy and consistency, as well as helping to streamline and improve the entire process.
Hayden enjoys his work at Vigilant because it taps into many of his skills. His extensive knowledge of programming languages gives him a unique perspective on AAP data, and if there is fact-finding and analysis to be done, he leans on his past work as research assistant for a university professor. Not only is he an expert at making sense out of vast amounts of raw data, another of Hayden’s skills is translating Japanese to English, an activity he enjoys for the creativity in making translated text sound natural.
In his free time, the Palo Alto, CA native enjoys thrift shopping, spending time with friends and—believe it or not—cold and rainy weather.
