Data Scientist, Timo Petmanson

Funderbeamer exclusive bio

Our Data Scientist, Timo Petmanson is very special to us here at Funderbeam both personally and professionally. Below you’ll read some tributes from his biggest fans here and then you’ll read a song we’ve re-worked in his honor.

That’s funny — when I was asked to write something about Timo, I immediately thought about music and rhythm. Then I saw the full song about Timo (see below)😊 aka Mr. Music aka Mr. Rhythm aka Mr. Harmony. That is what he is and that is how he does things. PS! I think the song about Timo is simply genius! — Founder and CEO, Kaidi Ruusalepp

It’s hard to find a case where you’re presented with an individual who possesses a great sense of humor, bohemian nature, accuracy of a sniper, academic mind, musician, and composer. And yet such person exists. Meet THE TIMO! — Cofounder, Urmas Peiker

Timo is the soul of the data team. He tackles every problem with his superb knowledge and unwavering enthusiasm. When he’s not wrangling data he’s dominating on the foosball table or pushing the coffee machine to its limits. No matter what Timo is doing, you can always be assured he’s doing it with a smile and giving it his all. — Head of Data, Nick Vandrey


Thanks to Timo’s enthusiastic and encouraging attitude, it is a great pleasure to work together. He has a good sense of humor and intense curiosity. His rhetoric has the power to send us on adventures to determine the meaning of existence, even during our short coffee breaks. — Data Scientist, Seher Ugurcuklu

Please allow me to introduce Timo
He’s our Data Scientist and friend
He’s been around since 1986
Ruined many a Funderbeamer’s foosball rank

Timo was ‘round at Tartu U
Before he had his moment of priority and time
He made damn sure that his PhD
Would be finished at a later time

He’s pleased to meet you
Hope you guess his name
But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of his game

He stuck around in Tallinn town
When he saw it was a time for a change
Killed the interview at Funderbeam
And we were compelled to hire his brain

He rode a swivel chair
Held a Data Scientist’s rank
When the AI raged
And the data cranked

He’s pleased to meet you
Hope you guess his name, oh Timo
Ah, what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of his game, aww Timo
(Timo, Timo)

He watched with glee
While our CTO
Asked him to continue
His natural language work
(Timo, Timo)

He shouted out,
“I have music on Soundcloud!”
In your free time
You can check him out
(Timo, Timo)

Let me please introduce Timo
He’s a man of wealth and taste
And he plays in the Mandarones
And also with our Funderbeamers’ band
(Timo, Timo)

He’s pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed his name, oh Timo
(Timo)

But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of his game, oh Timo, get down, baby
(Timo, Timo)

He’s pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed his name, oh Timo
But what’s confusing you
Is just the nature of his game
(Timo, Timo)

Just as every piece of data is valuable
And all the analysts saints
As 0 is 1
Just call me Timo
’Cause he’s in need of some to celebrate
(Timo, Timo)

So if you meet him
Have some courtesy
Have some sympathy, and some taste
(Timo, Timo)

Use all your well-learned algorithms
Or I’ll lay your information to waste, umm Timo
(Timo, Timo)

He’s pleased to meet you
Hope you guessed his name, umm Timo

(Timo)

But what’s puzzling you
Is the nature of his game, umm Timo means it, get down
(Timo, Timo)

Timo
Oh, Timo, get on down
Oh, Timo!
Oh, Timo!
(Timo)

Tell me, baby, what’s his name
Tell me, honey, can ya guess his name
Tell me, baby, what’s his name
I tell you one time, Timo’s to blame

Oh, Timo

Timo
Timo
Timo
Timo
Timo
Oh, Timo

What’s his name
Tell me, baby, what’s his name
Tell me, sweetie, what’s his name

Timo, Timo
Timo, Timo

Timo, Timo
Oh, Timo
Timo, Timo
