    “I have always been an admirer of mediasmart from the beginning and had got an opportunity to work with the team from outside in my last 2 stints. Being an early cord-cutter myself, I truly understand the power of CTV and the fact that mediasmart had the technology of able to aggregate all the devices within the house gave me a lot of curiosity to work for this product. Further, the ability to extend this tech & data across screens makes it a one-stop solution for advertisers to invest.

     With an experience of 14 years in Analytics, Strategy, Planning, and ad tech, I am here to learn & contribute to the growing business. I am very excited & grateful for this opportunity. I extend my gratitude to the mediasmart & Affle leadership for making me part of this family. From the time I joined the team here has been very welcoming & warm, which speaks volumes about the strong bonding & culture established.  Given my love for Adtech & Data, this role provides a lot of opportunities for me to grow my horizon of learning across different media touch points and geographies. Looking forward to working with this incredible team and contributing to the passion & and growth", says Ramgopal.
