About James

Hey everyone! My name is James Murray and I've spent the last 5 years helping media companies grow and monetize their digital media businesses. Most recently I worked at PubMatic, a venture-backed advertising technology platform, where I helped companies such as Fox and National Geographic generate over $16M in programmatic advertising revenues. I came to PubMatic from WQHT HOT 97 - the 2nd largest radio station in the world - where I helped build the station's first ever digital advertising business. Prior to PubMatic, I honed my business acumen in the Analyst Program at Morgan Stanley.

I'm currently a first year MBA student at Vanderbilt, where I'm building DSRUPTISM - a digital community for young professionals and entrepreneurs. What differentiates us from competitors such as LinkedIn, is that we provide a platform for people to not only connect, but to discover and create partnerships with one another. My vision for the company is to revolutionize the way young professionals collaborate, and make it easier and more affordable for them to complete their professional and personal projects.

We're currently in private beta with the first version of the site and I'm looking for strong engineering talent (preferably a CTO & Co-Founder) to help us take the company to the next level. The ideal candidate has a CS degree and/or experience building user-friendly products across desktop, mobile web, and app environments. If interested in the opportunity, I look forward to chatting with you!
