#WeAreArity Wednesday: Van Nguyen

In our #WeAreArity at home series, we shine a spotlight on Arity employees each week. Meet Van Nguyen from our engineering team.

When my friend asks me what it is that I do again, I say…

At Arity, I design holistic data architectural principles and patterns that enable Arity teams to effectively deliver on their objectives.

In your own words, what is Arity?

We use our wealth of telematics data and knowledge of driving behavior to help connect drivers to insurers.

What is your work for home set up like?

While I shop for a proper WFH setup, I am floating between the kitchen counter, the couch, and the dinner table.

We all commuted into the office prior to COVID, how are you spending the extra time?

I take my time in the mornings to brew a proper Vietnamese coffee and take long walks with my dog.

Most people don’t know … 

That I hold a bachelor’s degree in biology.

The theme song of my life is… 

The Bee Gees – Stayin’ Alive

Would you get in a self-driving car? Why or why not? 

Absolutely. I’d love to have the option to kick back and relax on those long stretches of cornfields. However, I’ll still switch over to manual anytime I can catch a winding mountain road.

Favorite innovation pioneer? 

I’m a fan of anyone working on destigmatizing mental health. Mental health is as complex and impactful to a person’s ability to function as physical health.
