Hi, I'm Jordi Villar. I am from Barcelona, Spain.
I'm an engineer with more than 10 years of experience. During these years I acquired a vast knowledge in several areas and technologies.
For the last 3 years, I have been leading the data science and machine learning team in an ad-tech company.
In this role, I am working side by side with a team of engineers on machine learning and big data areas. With this team, I developed algorithms that drive automated pricing and high-frequency bidding on real-time auctions, able to run at scale. I also designed the reporting infrastructure, to enable ongoing performance analysis, as well as provide post-campaign insights.
Prior to joining this role, I have worked in machine learning, and computer vision related areas focused on researching and developing. I have been working in big companies and startups, which allowed me to gain experience in multidisciplinary areas.
I hold a Telecommunications Engineering degree (roughly equivalent to an ECE, master included) from the UPC in Barcelona.
