As part of our ongoing web series, we (virtually) sat down with Travis Sondgerath, our business intelligence developer.
How long have you been with Atiba and what is your role?
I’ve been working with Atiba for two years now as a business intelligence developer.
What is your favorite part about working at Atiba?
My favorite part about working at Atiba is the great work culture and community despite being a distributed workforce. Also, for me at least, most of my clients have been smaller companies and have been a pleasure to work with.
What motivates you to wake up and go to work?
I really enjoy problem-solving and getting the chance to learn new technologies. I frequently have conversations with new clients where I describe an approach to their current problem, which was something that I just learned for the first time when working with a different client on a previous project.
What has been your favorite project so far?
My favorite project was when I created a reporting process from the ground up for a healthcare startup. Since they are still figuring out how to run their business I have never been told “this is the way we’ve always done things.” They have been very flexible in doing things as recommended.
What’s your home office like?
My home office is decked out with board games, books, plushies, diplomas, and a little bit of random art. My board game collection is probably the geekiest thing about me too.
You’ve been handed a million dollars but you have to spend it all by the end of the day. What do you do?
Assuming investments don’t count, I would buy a fleet of vintage cars and a warehouse to store them in. It’s likely the value of the cars would increase over time.
