My guest today is Raz Shuty. He is currently the Head of Engineering at Wikimedia Deutschland, the 1st and largest chapter of the Wikimedia Foundation outside of the US.
Raz holds a B.Sc in Computer Science, a M.Sc in Computer Vision and has been working in the software industry for almost 15 years. He started his engineering and management journey as a student QA Engineer and progressed to a Software Developer in Test position, which still contribute to his product and quality focus to this day.
Originally from Israel, Raz moved to Berlin almost 6 years ago. A former competitive swimmer and Ironman Triathlon participant, these days he is testing himself with the challenges of parenting. Raz also runs a cool podcast called Techpoint Charlie with his spouse, tweets a lot and he’s generally known for making bad puns.
