New Faces of Bamboo: Introducing Martin Koen

Editor’s note: There have been several new additions to the Bamboo team since our last “New Faces” series, so it’s time once again to introduce the new folks to Bamboo Nation.  Next up is Martin Koen, Data Analyst…

1. When did you join
the Bamboo Solutions team, and what is your role?

I joined Bamboo in January 2014 as a Sales and Marketing
Data Analyst.

2. What are your
personal goals regarding your position for the next year?

My goals are to produce relevant and reliable data that can
help marketing and sales managers with the decision making process.

3. What’s your
professional background?

I have a M.A in criminology, and am currently a PhD
candidate at GMU. I have about 4 years of research experience in the social
sciences. I also teach part-time at GMU.

4. What prompted you
to join the Bamboo team?

Finding out about Bamboo’s need for data analytics.

5. What were some of
your first impressions of working at Bamboo?

I noticed the somewhat above-average organic organizational
structure and the very inclusive organizational culture. Also, the food.

6. With over 70
products to learn, do you feel overwhelmed? 
What’s your strategy for getting up to speed?

As I learn SharePoint, I learn about where our products are
relevant. One at a time.

7. Other than your
deep and abiding love of extending SharePoint, what interests or hobbies do you
enjoy outside of work?

I play the guitar, play disc golf, coach youth rug, and
have taken up photography.
