Joost has hired Jason Gaedtke as chief architect, the company tells us this morning. Gaedtke will not serve as CTO, as Multichannel News claims, but rather will report to Joost SVP of Engineering Matt Zelesko.
Gaedtke was previously chief scientist at CableLabs; before that, he was chief architect for Comcast Interactive Group. Zelesko has worked at Comcast Interactive Group as well, serving as VP of engineering.
A tipster also points out that Gabo Mendoza, another Comcast guy, has joined Joost, heading up user experience. So it seems Zelesko is getting the band back together.
