Hi! My name is Bradford "Chip" Malt. I grew up in Boston, MA and attended Buckingham Browne and Nichols High School where I was the captain of the football and baseball teams. I then went on to Georgetown University to play baseball and major in Computer Science and Economics. I was also a Baker Scholar at Georgetown and started my own web design company, Collegiate Coders. In addition to building websites for small businesses, we built a website to help students with the interview process and were featured on the front page of ABC News.
After school I took a job at Barclays Capital on the Interest Rates Sales desk in New York and later transferred to the Chicago office. I left Barclays in 2013 to return to Business School at the University of California, Berkeley Haas to study management and technology entrepreneurship. During my time at Haas, I took crossover classes at the Berkeley School of Information (UI/UX Design, Python for Data Analysis) since I am very interested in computer science, machine learning, and data analytics.
Apart from career life, I am a licensed pilot and enjoy adventuring, traveling, and mountain climbing. I have visited 60+ countries over the past few years, including my two most recent adventures: a 10,000 mile car race from London to Mongolia to raise money for breast cancer research (we raised $26,000+ for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute) and summiting Aconcagua, South America's 23,000 foot peak.
I am interested in leveraging my CS background to make data-driven business and strategy decisions. I thrive in entrepreneurial environments that are fast paced and provide new and complex challenges.

Discounting tends to be a necessary evil for a lot of businesses, especially young ones with inventory management issues or aggressive revenue targets. No matter the company’s purpose, it is clear that the discounting trend is here to stay in e-commerce and there’s no time period where it’s more prevalent than the holiday season.
