New CTO for Twaice

Jeff Glas­son starts as the new CTO at TWAICE, the now 100-strong bat­tery soft­ware com­pa­ny head­quar­tered in Munich, Ger­many. There, Glas­son is respon­si­ble for the tech­nol­o­gy team and over­all tech­nol­o­gy strat­e­gy. He will dri­ve prod­uct deliv­ery, scale TWAICE’s cloud plat­form, and ensure tech­nol­o­gy excel­lence across cus­tomer industries.

Before com­ing to Ger­many, Glas­son worked in the tech­nol­o­gy indus­try in Sil­i­con Val­ley. He has held var­i­ous tech­ni­cal posi­tions at HP, Apple and NeXT. After join­ing NeX­T’s man­age­ment team as head of the OS group, Jeff held lead­er­ship posi­tions at Apple, VMware, and Cloud­era, each respon­si­ble for var­i­ous soft­ware tech­nolo­gies and glob­al engi­neer­ing teams. Most recent­ly, Jeff served as VP of Engi­neer­ing at Con­tent­ful in Berlin, where he led the scal­ing of the engi­neer­ing orga­ni­za­tion from about 40 to over 100 employ­ees in 2.5 years. Jeff holds a bach­e­lor’s degree in com­put­er engi­neer­ing from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cal­i­for­nia, San Diego.

“We are very excit­ed to have a cal­iber like Jeff Glas­son on board as our new CTO,” com­ment­ed Michael Bau­mann, Co-CEO of TWAICE, on the per­son­nel addi­tion. “The chal­lenge of an inten­sive selec­tion process was to find the right com­bi­na­tion of expe­ri­ence and for­ward-think­ing — and Jeff has both. He’s exact­ly what TWAICE needs now, as we move into the next stage of the com­pa­ny’s devel­op­ment and roll out our prod­ucts and ser­vices on a glob­al scale.”

“As a full-blood­ed engi­neer, I am fas­ci­nat­ed by the unique tech­nol­o­gy that TWAICE has devel­oped. This has a big impact on emis­sions and ener­gy con­sump­tion and helps make this world a bet­ter place,” says Glas­son, excit­ed about join­ing TWAICE.

In his per­son­al life, Jeff Glas­son loves the moun­tains, good food, wine and board games. He is mar­ried and has two sons.
