As Data Programs Manager at the Office of Finance, I'm tasked with tackling big problems with creative solutions. My role merges data analysis and visualization, storytelling, a wide network of web tools, partnership building, and a wealth of public speaking and project management.
In my former role as the Data Strategist on the Mayor Operations Innovation Team, I played key roles in building LA's portfolio of city-owned real estate, creating a strategic procurement unit for citywide purchasing and enhancing the data framework for workers' comp and risk management. In past lives I've been the social media lead and Latin American biz dev lead at a tech company, the digital director for both a grassroots mayoral campaign and a tech-focused nonprofit, and an ad agency account exec.
During my free time I manage Techtinx, a digital-first nonprofit which builds professional networks and influence for Latinas/os/x in tech. Hit me up on Twitter at @JuanSVas.
