Adarga, a leading artificial intelligence analytics software company, is pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Atlas as its Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Jason is a highly experienced software executive with over 25 years’ experience, beginning at Microsoft with MSN 1 and Windows 95 through being a CTO in the US and UK since 2006.  He has a strong track record of growing and leading world class software development teams, with deep expertise in intelligent software systems and security. Previously, Jason spent time as Head of the Data Intelligence Team at Microsoft where he was responsible for the Abuse and Safety platform. Additionally, he was CTO of Adbrain, a start-up in which he played a crucial role in its growth trajectory, and subsequent successful sale to The Trade Desk. Jason’s appointment follows the recent completion of the Company’s £5 million Series A fundraise, the proceeds of which will be used to continue the expansion of Adarga’s data science and software engineering teams, to accelerate research & development and to execute the adarga_engine™ and adarga_bench™ software platform rollout in the UK and beyond. Rob Bassett Cross, CEO of Adarga, commented:  “We are delighted that Jason will be joining the Adarga team. He has a track record in running world leading development teams and brings a career of highly relevant experience, particularly within intelligent software systems and security.  This is invaluable to us as we continue to develop our analytics platform and new software products. Jason’s knowledge, garnered from his time leading the Data Intelligence Team at Microsoft, where they still utilise his security platform, will be a considerable asset for Adarga as we continue on our strong growth trajectory.” Jason Atlas, commented: “I am very excited to be joining Adarga; a dynamic team with profound sector expertise, who have built an exceptional product offering in a very short space of time. I look forward to being part of a disruptive business which is at the forefront of tackling issues central to national security and defence, and continuing to provide solutions to the issues posed by vast quantities of complex data.”
