It’s critical for our CTO to have expertise in software architecture, development and management of teams supporting ecommerce, call center and data warehousing projects. Sasha has all of these attributes and more. Bringing Sasha on as CTO is a clear signal that Bridgevine is going to continue to expand upon our already leading technology platform and drive us toward our next iteration of growth and expansion into life cycle events.”

In his roles as EVP of Technology and CTO at a variety of leading technology organizations, Sasha’s focus has always been on data-driven management and a delicate balance between operational cost savings and a successful acquisition and retention of A-players. In his most recent role as the technology leader at Triton Digital, a large provider of marketing services for Radio and TV, Sasha navigated the company through an explosive growth by consistently employing ROI-analysis and performance metrics. During his tenure, Triton’s technology team grew from 7 to 50+ people and, as the result, the product portfolio was enriched with 5 new enterprise applications.
Sasha received his Ph.D. in computational linguistics from the University of Stockholm in Sweden. After graduation he developed a system of computerized memory assessment and cognitive tests, which he successfully marketed and deployed in educational and clinical institutions across North America.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be.
