Staff Spotlight

Nicholas

I joined Foresight as an Analyst after graduating from the University of Minnesota with a career interest in statistics, and have found it to be great fit.

I get to work with numbers and find creative solutions to business questions. Foresight’s project-based approach means workdays are challenging and never boring. I also appreciate how Foresight invests in the team, so I can build my skills, advance in my career, and travel (one of my favorite memories was running a brand workshop in Thailand).

I work with a great group of coworkers in a relaxed environment (except when we get a foosball game going). Most importantly I get to bring my dog, a Lhasa Apso named Porter, into work with me every day.

Outside of work, I am a big sports fan (basketball, football, and soccer are my favorites), which kicked off my interest in statistics. I also enjoy playing video games, visiting breweries, and, of course, hanging out with Porter.

Why Foresight?

VALUES

We value energy and dedication over seniority and status. Self-starters who do not shy away from tough problems are a natural fit for us.

CULTURE

We balance a start-up feel, with the opportunity to solve problems for Fortune 100 clients. We foster a collaborative environment that makes room for new ideas and encourages ‘productive disagreements’

GROWTH

We are a small, expanding team which enables accelerated career progression and personal development. The growth of our employees is the engine of our success.

We are a growing team that takes our work seriously, but not ourselves. We look for analytically-wired self-starters, problem-solvers, and people driven by curiosity.

Current Openings

Although we have no current openings, we are always interested to hear from those with a passion for what we do.
