Meet the ads team
Eric cofounded Read the Docs and took it from a hackathon project in 2010 to full-time in 2014. Experimenting with funding models led him to create EthicalAds to make Read the Docs sustainable and now he wants to bring that to the wider open source community. He previously worked at Urban Airship and the Lawrence Journal-World, the home of the Django web framework.
David joined Read the Docs back in 2017 to work on security, privacy, and to build EthicalAds. He saw the importance of ethical advertising and joined the team to help take the approach from a single site to a larger network that supported the open source ecosystem. Previously David worked on security at Qualcomm and Amazon before being director of technology at TapHunter.
Ra orginally joined EthicalAds in 2021 as a data scientist and designated people person. They're excited to assist with account management, bespoke data visualizations, and in bringing machine learning to privacy preserving advertising. Ra previously worked as an intern for Google and then as a research scientist at Perspecta Labs, a descendent of Bell Labs.
