We have some pretty impressive employees here at Datacubed Health, ꟷfrom marathon runners to musicians — we have some eclectic folks in our Datacubed family. And our new Employee Spotlight series aims to highlight the talented individuals that work here. Each month we’ll be featuring a Datacubed employee so that you can learn more about the brilliant minds behind our company. For this month’s Employee Spotlight, we spoke with our Product Manager, Nidhi Goyal.
Would you please explain your role at Datacubed Health?
I am the Product Manager here at Datacubed. I execute on my team’s priorities, including expanding product capabilities, validation & communication of requirements, and increasing the breadth of product knowledge to internal employees. Also, I help oversee our Linkt platform’s data solutions/analytics, building data as a product. I work closely with the Science, Data Architect, Design, Engineering, and Project teams.
How did you land at Datacubed Health? Can you tell us more about your career journey?
I’ve always had a passion for healthcare technology since I was a child, so I made sure I took the necessary steps to get into this field when growing up. I started by studying biotechnology engineering during undergrad, but my career took a turn once I graduated. I became a business data analyst for about 4 years when I lived in India and wore dual hats in the business and tech fields while working there. So, after that realization, I decided to pursue my Master’s in Information Systems, with a focus on data analytics and big data technologies, to tap into my technical expertise. While getting my Master’s, I was fortunate enough to work for a drug supplier company, which ultimately got me into healthcare. And then, once I completed my Master’s, I landed here at Datacubed.
What do you like most about your job at Datacubed Health?
I am thrilled to be working at Datacubed as a product manager. My role has a lot of focus on data, which of course I love. So overall, I’d have to say that working with data every day is one of the favorite parts of my job. I also like how no day is the same, and I learn something new every day. It’s a culmination of those three things that I like most about my job.
After asking work-related questions with Nidhi, we asked her more personal/fun-related questions.
What motivates you to wake up and work every day?
Working with my team and so many other amazing people every day is one of my biggest motivators. They all have brilliant ideas about behavioral science and patient engagement, which is what Datacubed is all about. As for other motivators, I’d have to stick with what I mentioned before, having the ability to learn new things every day.
What is something that most people don’t know about you?
I actually work better when I get less sleep. My sweet spot is if I get around four or five hours of sleep. If I get the recommended seven or eight hours, I feel super sluggish the next day. It’s pretty bizarre, but it works for me.
Could you please share a quote or motto you live by that could inspire others?
One of my favorite inspirational quotes is by Frank Sinatra, and it’s when he said, “the best revenge is massive success.” That has stuck with me for as long as I can remember. I don’t believe in actual physical revenge. Still, I do think that when people are knocking you down or are always telling you otherwise, becoming insanely successful and ignoring the negativity is the best “revenge.” Another quote I’ve always believed in is, “practice makes perfect.” I’ve accomplished so many things in my life just by doing them repeatedly until I got them right, so my practice did make them “perfect” in a way.
We simply can’t thank Nidhi enough for her outstanding contributions to our company over the past few months, and we’re so lucky to have her as part of our Datacubed Health family. Be on the lookout for more Employee Spotlight features soon to learn more about the incredible people who work here.
