My name is James Kingsbery (I go by Jamie), and I am the Optimization Team Lead at Yodle, managing a team of brilliant quantitative developers/analysts. We solve incredibly challenging problems developing Yodle’s proprietary bidding algorithm. Previous to that, I was Senior Software Engineer and Development Team Lead for Cross Commerce Media, a start up in New York City. My technical areas of expertise are software engineering, release automation, development process improvement, and software team building. Having been at a start-up and now working in the marketing industry, my interests have spilled over into non-technical areas, such as the process of discovering, developing and refining products and maximizing the use of marketing channels.
This blog has several goals:
- A quick reference for ideas that I have
- It serves as my “writing” outlet in Duane’s Algorithm
- As a means of sharing thoughts that I have with whoever finds them interesting. My mix of skills means that my posts will be varied in nature.
