Rick Plyler Jr.

Passionately Curious!

Ever since i was a little kid, i've always tinkered and tore things apart to understand how they work, then rebuilt them, sometimes better then they were. This passion carried me through my education, travel, work, and personal interests. I studied programming languages, algorthims, and processes with pretty much the same fascination that drove me as a kid. I love learning, solving problems, and find efficiences with modern technology.

Recommendations

“Eternal optimist Pragmatist Data wizard True partner Five years ago, Rick brought difficult-to-comprehend answers to discussions. Today, expressing an awareness of his audience, he delivers concise, elegant solutions. Having matured into an impactful role that engages with a wide scope of business partners, he hits roadblocks only when hardware limits him. And even then, he finds workarounds. My experiences with Rick have been consistently positive and productive, which is not always the case with people in technical roles. On top of his technical talents, his optimism is buoyant, and frequently helps relieve pressure in challenging conversations. If I were to build a Dream Team, Rick would be on it, no questions. Highly recommend. “ --Brook

"Over the 6+ Years I've worked with Rick, there is one immutable conclusion: There is no challenge he cannot handle. The intricacies of ever-changing and evolving pricing & promotional strategies as well as vendor enforced MAP policies can be overwhelming to most are second nature to Rick. Add to that his unique and artful ability in the analytical & attribution realm and you have a dynamic A-team player for any Ecomm team. His expertise in taking massive data sets and distilling them down to consumable and tailored reports to each individual business user is truly impressive. What won't show up on any resume or linkedin profile are the intangibles Rick possesses. His ability to galvanize and unite a team around concepts, strategies and ideas is second to none. If you're looking for a team member who is knowledgeable, passionate & has a commitment to add value every single day, Rick is your guy." --Patrick
