Our growing team brings a unique combination of industry experience, technical and functional expertise, and airline relationships.
The idea behind flyiin dates back to 2004, when Stéphane was heading airline distribution strategy at Amadeus. As the original founder of flyiin, he can finally bring his idea to life, and with this talented team of engineers and product specialists, drive the modernization of an industry that badly needs it.
No need to introduce Montie (to our industry peers). Montie is the former CEO of Air Canada and sits on the boards of Allegiant and Finnair. He’s also a recognized thought-leader in airline distribution, and has been a close and invaluable advisor since the early days of flyiin.
Head of People & Operations
Catharina is not a stranger to the start up scene, coming from a Berlin-based gaming start up where she helped build the foundations and grow it to a 40+ people company. As we’ve been transitioning from a two men shop to a multi- disciplinary and growing team, her experience is certainly a great asset to flyiin.
Tech Lead Integrations
Eleni comes to flyiin with a solid experience in developing platforms, APIs and games; whilst working closely with product teams and clients. Having been part of the early days of a startup herself, she knows well what is required in building products that can scale.
Sr. Software Engineer
Joining us from the city of Chengdu in China, Lei offers a solid 10 year experience in software engineering gained with a number of international companies (Myriad Group) and startups (Ripple, Axel) as well as a freelancer. His expertise in multiple back- and front-end programming makes him a great addition to the team.
Hitesh brings to flyiin extensive experience with Kubernetes implementations, DevOps Solutions, and Infrastructure-as-Code tools such as Terraform & Packer. His 12+ year expertise in automating end-to-end continuous integration and continuous deployment processes will enable us to deliver the level of service and system reliability our customers deserve.
As flyiin’s technical co-founder, Dániel has been getting his hands dirty with airline APIs for quite a few years already, allowing him to design an architecture that will make our Airline DirectConnect Platform unique and superior in the increasingly crowded airline content aggregator space.
Tech Lead Platform
Yury was our first software engineer to get on-board, after gaining a wealth of experience in Elixir, Erlang and building production systems. Yury is playing an essential role in building our platform’s foundations in order to meet the needs of our customers in terms of reliability, speed and flexibility.
Abel Mesfin Cherinet
Abel recently graduated from the University of Tartu, Estonia, where he completed a Master in Software Engineering. His interest in functional programming, and more specifically Elixir, makes him a great match to flyiin.
After getting his hands dirty with Ruby on Rails, Kanmani moved to Elixir as his main language, which he helped expand as the core tech stack at his former employer LIQID. Kanmani brings his experience in Elixir, his knowledge of API design, and more, for the benefit of the team.
Sr. Software Engineer
A veteran of the US Army, Zack transitioned to the world of software programming ten years ago and has been working on a multitude of projects, including some on behalf of Lufthansa. His deep understanding of XML made the ideal next team member, as we are navigating the varying complexities of airline XML APIs, and making sense of them.
Sr. Technical Product Manager
With a solid understanding of the airline industry acquired at Amadeus, and a strong background in product management in a variety of heavily tech-focused companies (skyz.tech, Adphorus, etc.), Sena is without a doubt the right person to help us bring our platform to the next level and deliver the functional requirements of our growing base of channel customers.
