100th guest special with Werner Vogels, CTO & VP of Amazon
< 1 day ago
Werner Vogels, CTO and VP at Amazon.com and a world-leading expert on scalable systems, didn’t have the traditional entry into tech one might expect.
Responsible for driving Amazon’s technology vision, which is to continuously enhance innovation on behalf of Amazon’s customers at a global scale, Werner is one of the architects behind Amazon’s approach to cloud computing, Amazon Web Services (AWS).
Tune in to the 100th Seedcamp podcast special for a deep-dive as Werner talks to Carlos about his fascinating and varied journey from studying Computer Science aged 28 and a 10 year career in academia, to co-founding his own business before starting his first “real job” at Amazon in 2004.
Learn more about the core pillars that uphold Amazon’s approach to hiring, team work and commercialisation as well as how a relentless focus on customer centricity guides all product development.
With references to Seedcamp-backed companies such as TransferWise - improving customer experience and disrupting staid industries such as financial services - hear Werner’s thoughts on the need for enterprise to innovate to compete with younger companies or risk going out of business.
