Today we are talking to Ilan Twig, the Co-Founder and CTO at TripActions. And we discuss the challenge in scaling culture during hyper growth, how he uses methods from the Israeli Air Force to strengthen his team, and why those that can scale themselves earn a seat at the table.

All of this, right here, right now, on the Modern CTO Podcast!

Ilan Twig is the CTO and Co-Founder of TripActions where he oversees product development and the engineering team. With almost two decades of experience in engineering, Ilan led large research and development teams at both Hewlett Packard Software and Rockmelt. Most recently, Ilan founded StreamOnce with TripActions’ CEO Ariel Cohen, a business multimedia integration platform which was eventually acquired by Jive Software where he worked as EVP of Engineering before founding TripActions with Ariel.
