Ola in a few words

As a tech executive with over 20 years of experience in the industry, I have a proven track record of success in building innovative and high-performing products. My expertise lies in driving product strategy, UX, managing cross-functional teams, and bringing products to market with speed and efficiency.

Throughout my career, I have held leadership positions at some of the most well-known tech companies in the world (including Rakuten, Naspers & Rocket Internet), where I have built teams from the ground up and led the development and launch of numerous products that have disrupted their respective markets and achieved significant market share.

I am a results-driven leader who is passionate about using technology to solve problems and improve the lives of users. I have a strong background in UX design and software development, and I am well-versed in agile methodologies and the latest technologies and tools. I'm equally comfortable being an individual contributor, having previously built a startup from scratch, and providing advisory product development and engaging as a consultant at various early/growth stage companies.

I am confident in my ability to drive the development and success of any product, and I am always looking for new opportunities to leverage my skills and experience to make a positive impact.
