Interview with Martin Sundin, Data Scientist at LYTT

INTERVIEWS
Martin Sundin, Data Scientist at LYTT, May 11 2022

What inspires you about working for LYTT?


Everyone in the company is very friendly, open, and inclusive. We work under the motto "fail fast," so we try to understand why something didn’t work and then work together to fix it rather than focusing on blaming someone when it happens.


The organization is very flat, so you get exposed to many things outside of your immediate remit, which keeps work interesting.


I actually initially joined LYTT in July 2020 but then decided to accept another opportunity 9 months later. However, I quickly realized that I had made a mistake as the new job was not as interesting nor as fulfilling as the one I had at LYTT. Luckily, I was offered the chance to come back, something I am very grateful for.


 What are your LYTT highlights?


It's amazing to see when a machine learning model I’ve worked on is used in the field as part of LYTT’s overall platform (made up of edge computing, data pipeline & cloud and frontend visualization) to improve decision-making and have real-world consequences. Playing a small part in making oil and gas production safer and more efficient is a good experience.


What are the challenges of working for LYTT?


Ensuring our machine learning models are regularly trained with the latest field data and conditions so they can adapt to the unique operational challenges our customers face.


What was your dream job as a child?


I wanted to be an astronaut and travel to other planets. It still interests me, and I try to keep up with the latest research in faster-than-light travel when I can. Many are surprised when I explain that it is not just science-fiction anymore.

Tell me something interesting about you.


I like languages and am half-decent at speaking Swedish, English, German, Russian, (Brazilian) Portuguese, Spanish and French (at least I think I am). I also tried to learn Klingon once, but without success.
