James Avery is the founder of Adzerk and serves as its CEO. He was the co-founder of TekPub, which helped developers learn from high-quality screencasts.

Our Story

Adzerk began in 2009 when software engineer James Avery wanted better tech for managing his network’s ads. While initially being JavaScript-based, Adzerk quickly focused on server-side API ads as the future of the internet.

Soon, Adzerk offered not just an API ad server, but infrastructure tools for companies to build their own ad products. Now, Adzerk's product is a suite of APIs aimed at powering the back-end of your fully customized ad server.
