Say Hello To Jason, isocket’s New Sales Dude

Hey guys – my name is Jason Shen and I’m proud to be the newest addition to the isocket team! My official start date is today, July 12th, but it feels like longer because I’ve already come into the office bunch for interviews and training. I just wanted to share a bit about me and what I’ll be doing at isocket.
My “job title” is Customer Scout and I’ll be playing counterpart to Ryan’s Customer BFF role. My job is to get our customers to go on a date with isocket, and Ryan makes them fall in love with us. Or something like that. Luckily, with customers like Techcrunch and Cheezburger, we’re off to a good start.
Before joining isocket, I cut my teeth in advertising as the Business Manager for The Stanford Daily. I oversaw operations, the business staff and the financial performance for our 118-year old independently incorporated newspaper. I also saw how powerful (and lucrative) premium displays ads could be for our organization – which is part of why I’m so excited about isocket.
Before the Daily, I cofounded a microfinance oriented social venture, got a BS & MS from Stanford University, and spent 10 years as a nationally competitive gymnast. I’m super excited to start kicking butt at isocket – we have an awesome team, a really useful product and some big plans to build toward.

Hey guys – my name is Jason Shen and I’m proud to be the newest addition to the isocket team!

Today, July 12th, is my first official day. But it feels like longer because I’ve been getting to know these guys through interviewing and training.

My job title is Customer Scout. You’ll be seeing more of me if you are interested in working with isocket or at local events. I’ll be playing counterpart to Ryan’s Customer BFF role. He and I are both part of the “Customer Team” – our job is to provide excellent service and help spread the word about isocket.

A little about my past:

Until last month, I was cutting my teeth in advertising as the business manager of The Stanford Daily. I oversaw operations, the ad sales & finance teams and the financial performance for our 118-year old independently incorporated newspaper. I also saw how powerful (and lucrative) premium display ads could be for our organization – which is part of why I’m so excited about isocket.

Before the Daily, I cofounded a microfinance oriented social venture, got a BS & MS from Stanford University, and spent 10 years as a nationally competitive gymnast. I was proud to be the Captain of the NCAA Div I National Championship Men’s Gymnastics team at Stanford.

I’m super excited to start kicking butt at isocket – we have an awesome team, a really useful product and some big plans to build toward. If you have any more questions about me or know of any publisher who wants an easier way to do direct and self-serve display ads, drop me a line at jason at isocket dot com.
