We are super excited to welcome mastermind Paul Schulz CPTO at Perkbox, ex-Head of Mobile Technology at Yahoo!, at The Family, who shared with us 10 engineering lessons moving from a startup to a rapidly growing global scale-up.
Paul has over 27 years of experience in the tech industry, 17 of which have been as a CTO. He has worked for companies such as Nokia, Yahoo! and also created an industry-leading Open Source video advertising product called Open Video Ads, acquired by JWPlayer. Most recently, he has been operating as CTO for very early stage tech companies in London.
Successful ventures move rapidly from the state of startup to scale-up. Often, founders neglect to prepare technically for the scaling phase when building a business in the early days. The mistakes made early on can severely limit the ability of a company to meet demand and grow rapidly during the most critical time of its life.
Paul shared his incredible experiences in helping ventures move from start-up to scale-up.
At Perkbox, he helped the Product and Engineering team grow from a small team creating and supporting one product for one market, to a larger team developing four products across 3 markets.
Perkbox is Europe’s fastest-growing employee experience platform aimed to enrich employees’ experiences. They have helped over 600’000 employees and some of their customers include Deliveroo, OpenTable, NHS, Wasabi, Rentalcars.com, and so on!
