Head of research, data science and analytics

Developing cutting-edge innovations that deliver business value, while contributing to the broader technology community could summarise Raigon Jolly’s seven-year narrative at fraud protection company, TrafficGuard Australia. He is currently the head of research, data science and analytics there.

A founding member of the company, Jolly’s work at TrafficGuard involves the full stack, including DBT for transformation, Looker for BI, BigQuery, Spanner, Bigtable and all of the artificial intelligence (AI), real-time streaming services on Vertex and Dataflow.

Slasher, TrafficGuard’s custom-made in-house collection and reporting system, is another feather in Jolly’s cap. He was the architect and head of data engineering of ‘Project Slasher’, which now powers all TrafficGuard dashboards seamlessly across all customers and has helped the company achieve a 90% and 50% reduction in the cost of storage and analysis and overall cloud costs, respectively. It also reduced dependency on outside vendors and platforms completely.
