Perry Johnson

Hey! I’m Perry, a data scientist and engineer with 7+ years of experience leading data science initiatives in early-stage companies. I helped co-found Fishtail, a trade finance automation platform where we use lots of untraditional supply chain data to automate and de-risk global trade. I’ve worked in some other domains including agriculture tech, medical tech, quantitative finance, and crypto.

I love working with great people to leverage data, machine learning, and software to solve meaningful problems. I have experience building data pipelines, machine learning models, web applications, and working with APIs, mainly in Python. I spend my free time brainstorming startup ideas with friends, exploring the Montana backcountry, hiking, climbing, and biking.

Tech Stack

My tech stack includes: Python, Machine Learning Libraries (NumPy, Scikit-learn, Pandas, Turi Create, TensorFlow, Keras, PyTorch, fastai, Transformers), Web Application Frameworks (Django, FastAPI, Flask), AWS (EC2, RDS, S3, Batch, Lambda, SageMaker), Google Cloud Platform, Docker, Heroku, Bash, Git, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, APIs, Geographic Information Systems and proficiency in Go, Ruby, JavaScript, HTML, CSS
