My name is Jussi Roine, and I’m based in Helsinki, Finland. Having recently turned 40 I think I’ve tackled the inevitable midlife crisis well, at least for now.
I’ve worked in all things IT for almost 30 years, having founded my first company in 1991 at the ripe business age of 14. For the past 10 years, and up until September 2019 I worked as a CTO and Chief Research Officer for my own company that we recently merged with our competitor.
As part of my duties, I’m actively presenting at international events and I’ve gotten really, really good in doing my presentation slides at the last second.
Things that resonate strongly with me include cloud architectures, complex technical and business challenges and being outside my comfort zone. My only motivational and cheesy motto is “everything you’ve ever wanted is on the other side of fear” and I live by it.
