Generation is a global non-profit transforming education to employment systems to prepare, place, and support people into otherwise inaccessible, life-changing careers. Headquartered in Washington, D.C., Generation’s work has spanned 16 countries around the world, including the U.S., Chile, Kenya, Pakistan, and Thailand.
One of Generation’s top priorities going into the project was transforming their data infrastructure for responsiveness and scalability to support their future growth. Generation partnered with Rippleworks to reduce the organization’s user acquisition cost, increase the efficiency of their data analysis, and improve their data system’s stability.
Generation partnered with Katia Hayati, an engineering and data leader who brought decades of experience from Groupon, Microsoft, and Yahoo!. Together, they:
• Gathered internal requirements for a new data infrastructure design
• Developed a data infrastructure design that supports the new realities that come with Generation’s growth and scale
