Simon Data in New York City – which is now at around 75 people and growing rapidly – but because of his extensive background in data:
- Jason received his BS from Cornell in Computer Science.
- Then went on to gain his PhD from the University of Texas in Machine learning, data mining and statistics.
- After his academic career, Jason founded two data companies, one of which was acquired by Etsy in 2009.
- At that point, Jason ran data at Etsy.com for 3 years before leaving to start Simon Data – which has just raised it’s series B of $20M.
He’s the ideal person to help explain what it means to create a “Data-Driven Organization”
