Jake Bialer and I have worked together for over 6 years across 4 different organizations, including The Huffington Post, The Telegraph, Sonr, and QCatalyst. Over the course of that time, Jake has displayed time and time again what a remarkable and unique talent he is. He has a powerful set of skills and battle-tested experience at the intersection of editorial, programming, and data analysis. While plenty of people can gather tons of data, I’ve never met anyone who could extract the kind of meaningful insight out of it that Jake can. Jake constantly goes above and beyond expectations, is full of insanely innovative ideas, and is honestly one of the most brilliant people I’ve met. Any organization would be lucky to hire him.Travis Donovan
