- What does your job at Chocolate entail?
Selling, selling and more selling! I work on key accounts based out of North America and bring new and exciting SDK supply partnerships to the Chocolate Platform. Chocolate’s SSP solution provides the highest ROI to our clients who are interested in mobile video ad mediation. I can’t wait to talk to as many developers and game publishers about it. We have a great product with the technology to back it up.
Your favorite moment with the Chocolate team so far?
Our team happy hours are a blast! Back in the SF office, we not just work hard but also play hard.
- Things that you like about working at Chocolate?
My job entails selling but it also involves the ability to help game developers and publishers achieve the highest ROI with Chocolate video ad mediation platform. I work closely with clients to assess their requirement and then help them find the most effective solution and build their app monetization strategy.
- Tell us about your experience prior to joining Chocolate.
I was in Sales and BD roles in mobile advertising for about 5 years prior to joining Chocolate. My specialties are in SDK, SSP, DSP, Gaming, Developer Relationships, Publisher Development, Supply Partnerships, and Ad Monetization of CPM/CPC/CPI/CPA offers. Before my mobile advertising career, I worked in Project Management and Ad Operations at Hitachi and Microsoft. My previous experiences has given me the technical exposure to resolve any integration issues & provide in-time resolution to clients.
- What are your pursuits outside of work? What do you prefer doing on weekends?
I am an avid reader, so enjoy finishing a good book. Like trying out new restaurants. Basically, I try and unplug as much as possible on the weekends by going on runs and gardening.
- What’s the best meal you have ever had and where?
Hands down, the BBQ seafood platter at the Fish Market in Sydney.
- What are the 5 things that you can’t live without?
My family, Asian food, books, Hulu and plain yogurt with those cute mochi balls.
- One thing that not many people know about you.
I know how to ride a motorcycle. However, these days, the closest thing I get to a motorcycle, is through a mobile game!
- Tell us about the biggest challenge that you are facing in your current role?
SDK fatigue! App publishers simply don’t have the time and resources to manually chaperone each one of their app’s SDKs and make sure they are well behaved. And even if they do, most of them aren’t even aware of the optimal ways to do so. That’s why they should go in for a partner providing easy to integrate, well documented product.
- What’s the one achievement you are proud of and why?
When I completed my first Half Marathon in Monterey two years ago. I trained hard for 3 months and achieved the outcome I wanted. It was a great feeling!
