This talk will be about my transition to Redfin, a real estate startup, from Boeing, an aerospace corporation. I will discuss the challenges of changing jobs and answer the question What exactly does a mathematician do at a real estate company? This talk will compare and contrast the experience of working at large company versus a small one, as well as a few of the skills I have found useful for both.
