Kiril Tsemekhman’s Addition Would Allow BounceX to Expand Product Offering and Bring More Value to Clients
At the time of this announcement, Ryan Urban, CEO and co-founder of BounceX, said, “Kiril was the obvious choice for this hire. His leadership experience and understanding of data will bring a new powerhouse team to the company, allowing us to expand our product offering and bring more value to our clients.”
At the leading People-Based Marketing (PBM) cloud company, Kiril Tsemekhman will spearhead the creation of BounceX’s data science and data engineering team, which will power the company’s product suite, including driving research that will be the basis of future products.
“With the massive amount of e-commerce data at BounceX’s disposal, we have the opportunity to build machine learning systems that will allow our company to serve our clients in an exponentially better way, drastically scaling their revenue and understanding of their consumers,” Tsemekhman said.
During his tenure at Integral Ad Science, Tsemekhman scaled his team from just two people to a 40 person team of data scientists, engineers and analysts. At BounceX, he hopes to scale his team in the same manner.
“To create and grow our data science capabilities, we are looking for passionate analytical thinkers with a practical mindset, good coders and scientists at heart — people who want to prove themselves, challenge themselves and learn,” Tsemekhman said.
The new VP of Data Science and Engineering added, “Data science is not simply writing a code to predict various events; these positions require people who can truly understand and tell a story using data, and explain behaviors or observations using machine learning techniques.”
