Claire Carroll

Fishtown Analytics
dbt Community Manager
As the sole analyst at a fast-growing Australian startup, Claire experienced the pain of the traditional analyst workflow — stuck on a hamster wheel, an ever-growing backlog, and numbers that never quite matched up. So she taught herself dbt, the command line, version control and brought all the rigor of analytics engineering to her team. Along the way, she fell so in love with dbt that she eventually packed up and moved to Philadelphia to lead the growing dbt community. In addition to answering hundreds of data ops questions every week in dbt Slack, she also keeps her data skills sharp working as an analytics engineering consultant on the Fishtown Analytics team.
