#WeAreTOMRA Meet Olav Johan, Data Scientist / Big Data Developer
For Olav Johan Horgen, data scientist / big data developer at The Solutions Hub for TOMRA Collection in Norway, the most important things in his work are truly taking part, getting the opportunity to bring ideas to life, and using his skills for a greater purpose.
What are you passionate about?
Joining in and saying "yes" to new things are very important to me. I have decided to always offer to help, and always accept when others offer to help me. It's great to see the good that come from it if you do it over time: getting to know new people, try out new activities, or have conversations that you might not have had otherwise.
I'm not afraid to put my hand up at work, which has seen me join in video filming and even dress up as Santa Claus to help explain data concepts in presentation to my colleagues--that way I'm trying different things outside my everyday to-do list. One of the most exciting things I have done at TOMRA, as part of my on-boarding, was visiting Infinitum (Norway's central system administration for its deposit return systems) to see how they process the drink containers TOMRA collects and get an overview of the entire deposit return system.
My personal motto is "Your best memories are ahead of you." And what we work toward TOMRA is toward a brighter future. I hope TOMRA continues to innovate and Lead the Resource Revolution!
