A Sneak Peek Inside John’s Role at CAKE:
On a daily basis, I maintain and grow existing partner relations and work with our product team on reaching out to potential strategic integration partners. With the help of our product team, I form partnerships with companies and other complimentary technologies that further empower our clients in using the CAKE Platform. Some key partners I’ve had the pleasure of bringing on-board recently include E-Hawk and Videology. Both of these partners provide a complimentary service to our clients and add a tremendous amount of value to the CAKE platform.
John’s Favorite Part About Working at CAKE:
I love the people and family community here at CAKE. The positive company culture speaks for itself.
John’s Hot Tip For Prospects:
CAKE’s robust reporting engine tells all. If the reports are telling you that your conversion rates are low in a certain channel, be proactive and shift your spending. Additionally, don’t discount the video channel. Video is by far one of the fastest growing channels and our new integration with Videology is going to make tracking video a breeze.
His Favorite Activities Outside of CAKE:
I like to brew beer, sail, scuba dive and relax with my friends. I also love keeping up with some of my favorite television shows including; Silicon Valley, and Game of Thrones.
Just For Fun, We Asked John: “If you could be any animal, what would it be and why?”
I would be some sort of falcon. The ability to fly places would be insanely cool and they’re some of the fastest birds in the world!
