Innovation Opportunities

Seeking innovative solutions for:

Wolfgang Meyers

Software Engineer

Innovation is one of the greatest treasures of our species.  It signifies the ability to reach out into the world and improve it or to take the building blocks of the past and create something new that can benefit humanity. Innovation is also a difficult process. It needs the right conditions to flourish and can seem impossible at times. But for those with the drive and the ability to learn from their mistakes and break through the barriers, innovation is nothing more than a puzzle to solve. In today’s world, we have many interesting puzzles waiting for us.

I’m interested in a lot of different problems, but for the most part I specialize in software development. I’ve been building software and games as a hobby for over 30 years and I’ve been doing so professionally for about 10 years. I’ve worked across a number of different industries building software to power business integration, advertising, fintech, cloud hosting, and the internet itself. Over the course of my career, I’ve watched a revolution in three key areas of technology that have reshaped the world of software as we know it: browser-based technology, server-less infrastructure, and deep learning. Connecting the world is more economical than it has ever been… so much so that we are regularly streaming video over the internet like it is nothing. As a software developer, I feel empowered as never before with all of these tools at my disposal.

When I started at Xinova, I was enthusiastic about joining a capable team and working on a technology stack based on modern infrastructure and sound development practices. I’m a big fan of the culture here, the open collaboration and the power to make an impact in the long-term vision of the company. But what really excites me lies ahead. I see a paradigm shift coming; I see a future where the way that people work together to bring positive change to the world, and the scale at which they are able to do so, is permanently changed for the better. Until then, I’ll be hard at work on the technology platform that makes it possible.
