We love writing about our product, features, and enhancements, and, of course, anything and everything technology, digital, AI, brands, and sports. But, we don’t talk or write much about the people behind the cutting edge and innovative work we’re doing at Blinkfire Analytics. This Meet the Team series takes you inside our Chicago, Valencia, and Dallas offices to “meet” the great team we’ve built — who just so happens to be creating super cool technology and working with some of the biggest brands, teams, and leagues in the world.
Meet the Team: Martin Soderbloom
