Thilo Seliger, our next Tech Leaders Hub guest, is the Director of Engineering Europe at @Airspace, where his team is building software for one of the most high-stakes industries in the world: emergency logistics.
Airspace arranges transportation of critical spare parts to make sure that factories can keep running—and your airplane can take off when there’s a sudden malfunction.
They also provide critical healthcare shipments, where speed of delivery can mean the difference between life and death.
Thilo built Airspace’s European Engineering team from scratch and not only is the team working in a very complex domain, but they also need to collaborate with development teams on the other side of the world while trying to be as autonomous as possible.
That’s the challenge that Thilo and his team have been engaged with, leveraging his experience brought in from companies like @Temenos @ING Deutschland, @time:matters, and @Zettle by PayPal
Watch this episode to learn about Thilo’s approach and benefit from his experience!
