Leslie Sage

Data | Adoption

Leslie is a data scientist with a passion for data. And science. Leslie performs data magic tricks to help new clients structure their information, then builds and optimizes a DevResults site to fit their needs. She trains clients in data management and makes sure they can organize the info they need to make informed decisions.

Leslie worked with the Obama Presidential Campaign in 2012 as Deputy Data Director for the battleground state of Iowa. In that position she transformed Red Bull into winning voter models, created up-to-the-minute dashboards for decision-makers, and discovered Midwestern craft beers.

Leslie holds a Ph.D. in Microvascular Physiology at the University of Bristol in England. Her research took her to the Hospital for Infectious Diseases in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where she collaborated with the Gates Foundation and Oxford University to develop a new way to study dengue infection.

Outside of work, Leslie enjoys hot weather, roller derby, NPR, brunch, and several other mealtimes. And tacos.

Diego Mijelshon

Engineering

Diego is a passionate developer obsessed with elegant solutions to complex problems.

Following his grandfather’s steps in engineering, he got fascinated with computers and since he wrote his first lines of code at age 12, he knew that software would be his life. 25 years later, he does not regret it.

A proud husband and father of twins, Diego lived all of his life in Argentina and speaks Spanish and English fluently, plus a bit of Hebrew and Mandarin (真的吗?בטח)

Bob Meyers

Engineering

Bob is a long-time business/tech nerd who loves creating technology solutions that solve real customer problems. His grandpa built rockets and his dad is a business investment guy, so maybe it's genetic? Bob has been designing and writing software since he was 10 or so, including a recent nine-year stint at Microsoft as a senior contributor to their data visualization and analytics platform. He also has extensive experience in software security and user experience design. He has a Bachelors in Computer Science and an MBA, both from Brigham Young University.

Bob spends a good chunk of his time with his wife raising their seven awesome children, gardening (which is a lot like raising children in some ways), reinventing some part of the house, playing, watching, or coaching basketball, or heading out on road trips to go spend time with extended family.
