Today we are talking to Matt Walker, the CTO and Co-Founder of Simon Data. And we discuss connecting the engineering team back to the customer, building a strong remote culture and removing emotion from mistakes to grow and learn from them.
All of this, right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!
Matt Walker is a co-founder and the CTO of Simon Data, the first enterprise customer data platform with a fully integrated marketing cloud. Prior to Simon Data, Matt was the first hire at Adtuitive – a technology platform that automated the entire online advertising process for small retailers – where he was brought on to research domain-specific page-to-product matching algorithms.
Once Adtuitive was acquired by Etsy in December of 2009, Matt worked as a Staff Software Engineer at the online marketplace, where he created an EMR-based analytics platform. From Etsy, Matt joined the Data Science team at Apple, after which he co-founded Simon Data in 2013. Matt holds a B.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Rice University and a Masters in Computer Sciences from The University of Texas at Austin. He currently resides in Austin, Texas with his wife, four children, and three dogs.
