CTO in residence
from Belgium

Independent learner and motorcyclist. But there's more to tell. This CTO knows exactly how to get to the essence of an idea and to translate that into technical concepts.

All while keeping an eagle eye on the bigger picture, and the ethical side of things, in order to make web applications. Jonas claims to have figured in a movie that was shown at the Venice Art Biennale a few years ago. Oddly enough though, nobody can find any internet evidence of this, as the movie was only screened once during the festival.

Is there one thing you find especially motivating in your work, more than anything else?
Seeing a product come to life. Or in the current project I'm working on, seeing a whole team come to life.

How many cats are in your house at the moment?
Only two, I hope. But I suspect they invite other cats over sometimes.

One job, many roles. The different skills needed to be a successful CTO

Some time ago I came across this article on Harvard Business School’s Working Knowledge blog about when founding CEOs need to go. It’s from 2005, but it is still just as relevant now. The main takeaway is that you need differently skilled people at the helm in different stages of your company and that this transition is not always easy. They talk about founding CEOs, but this is also true for CTOs, whether they are founders or not. Success or failure, you may need a different profile
