Our world is expanding!

CartoDB Team

We’re truly excited to introduce you to some of the new faces at CartoDB.

Please, let’s welcome:

Jeret Jenkins


Before arriving at CartoDB, Jeret ran recruitment at an ad-tech startup and at the American Civil Liberties Union. He’s a natural ambassador who loves connecting new people with jobs they will love, and we are excited to have him as our Senior Talent Manager!

“I was really attracted to CartoDB’s values and how the leadership takes those values seriously. We have great potential, cool tech and good people. I love being a part of that hyper-growth stage,” says Jeret. “It’s fun to see our vision resonate with new people.”

Jeret loves old maps (he has a copy of an 1673 Dutch map of New Amsterdam hanging in his apartment), riding his bike through Central Park while trying to avoid injuring tourists, and skiing and summer hiking in CO. He’s been a drummer as long as he’s been able to hold a drumstick, and when you’re in NYC, ask him to show you his favorite galleries at the Met.

Tracee Hurley


Tracee is the ideal person to manage our Partner Program for North America. Her experience leading the Geospatial Practice at systems integrator Cloud Sherpas means she’s seen every geo-IT architecture under the sun. Both at CloudSherpas and at AirWatch (VMWare) before that, Tracee has played a major role in ensuring demanding enterprise clients are happy and secure. She wears her Type A badge with honor (and a smile) and loves getting big things done.

“The traditional GIS partner ecosystem is full of organizations who are looking to innovate with new technologies and the CartoDB platform is valuable in so many scenarios,” she explains. “Both as a powerful ‘glue’ and an analytics platform.”

Tracee can’t sit still. She’s a gym enthusiast who loves to travel (Railay Beach in Thailand is her favorite place in the world), her awesome young son Kevin keeps her on her toes, and on the side she’s writing a cookbook!

Tyler Bird


Tyler aims to use our Grants Program to help students, educators and nonprofits move mountains. He comes from an international development background and recently completed a UN fellowship in Asuncion, Paraguay.

At CartoDB, he is making his first map that shows all the landmine-related events that have occurred in Colombia over the past 20 years. “I think maps are a powerful way to see and ‘feel’ the scope of a problem, and to understand how it impacts communities.” he explains.

Beyond his efforts building the Grants Program as part of the CartoDB Community team, Tyler works on an array of community outreach initiatives including workshops, events, and conferences. As he puts it, “I wanted to work where data, development and community engagement meet, and CartoDB could not be a better match.”

Tyler is an avid cyclist, snowboarder, and photographer. He loves to travel, but Prospect Park is his favorite place in the NYC.
