This time I have the chance to talk to the judo brown belt owning CTO of the scooter& mobility startup TIER mobility Matthias Laug. Before TIER he co-founded Lieferando and boy, he's a nice guest to talk to.

We spoke about:

  • Why he puts people over tech
  • What they use to run their large IoT stack
  • His vision of Scooters talking to each other in a huge mesh
  • Why after founding Lieferando and having a large exit , he still started at Thoughtworks
  • When to not do backflips even if you perfected doing them

He also briefly mentions Eric Bowman, Martin Fowler and Pat Kua.
