Daniil loves working on digital products. He is a CPO of the German FinTech VAI which provides digital on-demand purchase financing for small and medium-sized companies allowing them to grow faster. He started his career as a developer, eventually became a CTO, and then shifted into product management. In 2013, he founded an email startup Mailburn which he ran as a CEO for 3 years. Now, he mainly does product management, operations, and people management. He is best at leading tech or product teams, plus he has a decent experience in many other areas such as UX & design, HR, finance, and legal among many. Having experience as CPO as well as CTO, Daniil will talk about whether the role of CPO will replace the role of CTO for future startups..
