Person Details

Update

Charles Parra specializes in product strategy, development and scale for innovative technology solutions. With roots in engineering and two decades’ experience in pioneering digital technology firms, Charles is uniquely skilled at bridging the high-risk gaps that exist between product, code and client.

In his current role, Charles oversees both product and engineering as CTO for the mobile game distribution startup TreSensa, enabling the company’s expansion to over 200 games and 150 distribution partners.

Prior to joining TreSensa, Charles served as VP of Product Development at social ad network AppSavvy, where he oversaw the delivery of a mobile SDK that enabled activity-targeted display and video ads for both Android and iOS. As the VP of Product Management for Tremor Video, Charles was responsible for both publisher and advertiser product offerings, leading a product road map that grew a single-digit customer roster to 600+ in one year. Charles’ success is attributed, in part, to his fluency on both the business and technical side, a deep and practical empathy for client needs and the ability to define and implement scalable processes that make a meaningful impact on the bottom line.

Charles lives in New York City and can be found on LinkedIn, Twitter, Crunchbase and About.me.
