Melbourne, Australia

Jed Guinto (aka The Jellyman) is a Senior Data Analyst at Toyota Motor Corporation Australia. Jed runs a YouTube channel where he shares Tableau tips and tricks, has developed a Tableau Udemy course, and has created his own website for Tableau education called Jellyman Education with over 40 hours of content. 

After spending 10 years studying and working towards becoming an Aerospace Engineer, Jed received his credentials and even worked in the field, however felt that it was not the right fit. He began his YouTube channel with the mission to help people get into the analytics industry by arming them with the technical skills to manage their career long term.

In 2013, Jed began teaching on Udemy and began developing his Tableau course in 2019. With a high demand for Tableau training and people turning to online resources during the pandemic, Jed found great success in teaching Tableau through this platform. However, even after creating a comprehensive course with more than 20 hours of content, Jed saw many gaps in what there was to know about Tableau. This led him to building his own website, Jellyman Education, that dives deeper into how to become an analyst. Despite having more than 40 hours of content currently available, Jed anticipates that within the next year there will be closer to 100 hours because of how much there is to learn. Jed’s focus is not only to teach Tableau, but to teach it from the perspective of an analyst in real life—with practical situations such as stakeholder management, agile development, career planning, job applications, salary management, etc.

Connect with Jed on Linkedin, Tableau Public, YouTube, and on his website.
