Jeremy Biddle

Director of Engineering

Jeremy’s first web application hurled random insults at visitors in Shakespearean prose. An ignominious introduction to the slings and arrows of web application development, perhaps, but his work at Mixamo provides the perfect balance between his love of art, games, graphics, and that most amazing part of the digital artist’s toolchest that ties them all together -- the computer.

Jeremy is responsible for the keeping the Mixamo technology stack running and under constant development by our team of elite engineers. The back end web application architecture, the front end UI, tying together the many amazing services that the R&D team cook up, and managing the myriad platforms it all runs on, Jeremy and his team thrive on the fast paced development and the small company culture that that makes up Mixamo.

He received his BA in Computer Science at Boston University. Aside from badgering computers to do his bidding, he likes to fuss around with pencils, engines, languages, as well as clambering around on mountain trails from time to time.

Emiliano Gambaretto

Director of Research & Development

Emiliano Gambaretto obtained a PhD degree in Bioengineering from Politecnico di Milano (Italy) in 2011 for his research on Markerless Motion Capture. Part of his research was carried out at Stanford where he first met Stefano in 2006. He also received a Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering from Politecnico di Milano and a Diplome d’Ingenieur from Ecole Centrale de Lyon (France) in 2006.

He was part of Mixamo’s founding team in 2008. He’s currently Director of Research at Mixamo. His job consists of designing and developing the technologies behind Mixamo’s services.
