Jim KellyVice President, R&D

Jim grew up in the Bay Area. He graduated from Berkeley with a BA in Physics; and from Princeton University with a PhD in the same field. After defending his PhD he realized that he wanted to move back to San Francisco. “That was the time when you would find job ads in newspapers.” He saw several open positions for Software Engineers and Easter Bunnies – the latter because it was close to Easter. He thought that the Easter Bunny thing was going to be seasonal…so he went with software. The decision landed him at Scopus Technology – where he worked on the first generation of call center applications. That was in 1994, and Jim spent the next 10 years doing enterprise software at Scopus, and some other companies. Jim started at Quantcast in 2006, as one of its earliest employees. He has seen the company grow! Jim’s team is doing innovation around the cluster, brand targeting and measurement. He has 3 sub teams, a total of 12 brilliant engineers. Jim reports to Konrad. Jim remembers when the Quantcast office was on Natoma Street, more of an alley than a street. Then, they move to 2nd and Mission, down to 2nd and Harrison, and now at 3rd and Howard. He also remembers that they use to have just 1 conference room and 1 bathroom, and in order to use the bathroom you needed to cross all the way down through the conference room. It was “quite interesting” and that office “definitely had a lot of personality.”

Michael RecceVice President, Performance Engineering

Michael graduated from UC Santa Cruz University BS in Math and Physics. During his art degree he specialized in representational sculpture. He started a PhD program at the same school, but was recruited by Intel and moved to corporate life there for 5 years. When Michael left Intel, he was the Product Engineering Manager, in charge of all memory products. He left to pursue research in Artificial Intelligence. “My father almost killed me when I left. It was such a good job, he couldn’t understand why I wanted to quit and start a PhD!” Michael focused on a PhD in Neuroscience, at University of College, London, because he was interested in how the brain works. During the PhD program, he started teaching Neurophysiology in the Medical School, and both Computer Architecture and Artificial Intelligence in the Computer Science Department. That is where he met Konrad!! With his corporate experience, when Konrad and 3 other students started a company, Michael became their advisor and mentor. He eventually worked with them full time. When Searchspace was sold in 2005, Michael was “too risk averse to join what became Quantcast.” In 2010, Konrad and Paul tried to recruit him again…and this time he accepted. Michael directs the Modeling Team as VP. The Modeling Team goal is to make continuous improvements to the performance of our targeted advertising products – this includes better ways to measure and track campaign performance, like supply curves, and evaluation of the value of each real-time bidding opportunity. Michael reports to Konrad.
