Meet Nate Palmer at Datanomix

Engineering Director for Datanomix

Why did you choose to join the Datanomix Team?

Because Datanomix is awesome! Well there were a few things. One was having the chance to work with Greg McHale and John Joseph again on a brand new product. Another was the chance to define and build out an engineering organization that’s focused on product delivery and adaptation.

What makes you excited about your role and working with Datanomix customers?

The most exciting thing about working with Datanomix customers I have worked within the storage world for almost 18 years now and having the opportunity to switch to Industrial Automation while still applying my data analytics and system design skills is something new and exciting. Datanomix customers also offer a new and unique view on how data can be interpreted and integrated within their facilities that I am excited to learn more about.

Prior to Datanomix, what were you doing? How can that help you in your current position?

Before Datanomix, I was at a company called Netbrain. I was the Software Engineering Manager for the Platform and Operating System team at Nasuni where I was focused on building out the product pipeline for the core OS used by all appliances. I grew my team from 3 original members to 12 developers split between 3 different offices. Coming to Datanomix, I am hoping to leverage my experience in building teams and systems to execute on big projects.

What is one experience in your career that has helped shape who you are?

Early in my career I was given the opportunity to redesign a proof of concept monitoring tool into a data analytics and system monitoring application suite capable of collecting real time statistics. That experience helped me discover my love of data analytics, system design, and technical leadership which has really defined the type of developer and manager that I am today.

The Palmer Family

Where can we find you on the weekends?  How do you like to spend your free time?

Weekends are typically focused on my family; my wife and I have 3 kids (Emmalyn: 7, Alexandria: 5, and Dylan 3) all of which are very busy with sports or other activities. We are often running from one field to another, but occasionally we get to unwind with a family movie or board game nights. Beyond that, my free time is usually pretty casual as I love to read (often a book per week), play games (video or board), or play with our dogs.
