Interviewer: Haebichan Jung, Project Lead at TowardsDataScience.com. Interviewee: Maura Church, Head of Data Science at Patreon. Formerly at Google — B.A. in Applied Mathematics (Harvard University). Patreon.com is a platform that makes it easy for creators to get paid directly by their fans in a membership model.
You can go on Patreon and pay favorite creators certain amount per month to get exclusive benefits, sneak-peeks, etc. With enough patronage, the idea is for creators to make a living on Patreon rather than through ads or branding. Can you tell us about your professional background? Before Patreon, I was at Google working on data in a data analysis team.
