👋 Hello There!
My name is Paul Slaats, and I am a developer, product manager, and lifelong learner. My north star is creating value for people who invest their time, skills, and resources to improve their life and the lives of others.
I serve as a product manager at Capital Group, where my focus is providing investment insights through an ESG data platform. In addition to managing this platform, my teams have also built software for analyzing investment decisions, global oil supply, and financial cycles.
Before becoming a product manager, I worked alongside Capital Group’s team of investors as a Research Associate in pursuit of investment opportunities. My focus was researching small cap (<$6bn) companies and bringing technology to the investment process.
Before joining Capital Group, I graduated from Harvey Mudd College with a B.S. in Engineering. While attending, I partnered with Amazon and Northrop Grumman on research projects and interned with Starburst Aerospace, The Search Agency, Listen Logic and Thuzi.
Outside of work you can find me cooking, reading, or going for long runs.
