His connection will help us expand globally and get us to a multi-billion dollar company much faster.”

On the occasion, Gokul Rajaram affirmed, “I’m very excited to help the C1X team build an impactful product and company that transforms the world of advertising. I love C1X’s mission to reduce waste and inefficiency from the entire advertising process. The integrated platform is a huge step towards that and I’d like to constantly push C1X towards keeping the inspiring mission top of mind in every product and business decision.”

Rajaram is the product engineering lead at Square, the commerce company based in San Francisco, CA, that offers local businesses a full suite of hardware and software tools, including the Square credit card reader for iPhone, iPad and Android devices, and Square Register, a full point-of-sale system.
