MEET JAD.

WHY DO YOU LOVE WORKING AT PULSEPOINT?

Pulsepoint is a focused and profitable business, leading the change that’s transforming an entire industry. Not only that, but it’s a super environment if you want to be challenged, make a difference, and have fun at the same time.

What was the first job you ever had?

I worked after school and on weekends from the ages of 13 to 21 at an emporium in my hometown of Gloucester (work WAS my extracurricular activity). I’d bike 5 miles to be at work at 6 am to proof the croissants!

What is your all-time favorite advertisement?

My favorite ad was for Burger King back in the 80’s.
