JABIS SEVON, YOU’RE THE CDO AT AIRFAAS. CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE SOLUTION IN YOUR OWN WORDS?

AirFaas was from the get-go meant to be either a companion or a contender for heavy-hitting "business engines" like ERPs MRPs etc.

HOW DID YOU BECOME INVOLVED IN PROGRAMMING?

My late uncle, who was a Senior Engineer at Nokia during the "Finnish IT boom", taught me programming when I was knee-high, and as a result, at 10 years old I had already compiled my first Linux kernel.

WHAT’S BEEN THE HIGHLIGHT OF YOUR CAREER SO FAR?

I'd say getting an awesome like-minded team like we've managed to build here at AirFaas would count very high in the highlights department for me.

WHY WAS AIRFAAS CREATED?

We started answering to a real perceived need, as well challenging the more rigid, exponentially expensive, and heavily siloed, systems out in the market today, while trying to bring more control, visibility, and transparency to different supply chain structures.

WHAT HAS AIRFAAS EVOLVED INTO?

Our main focus now is on the Strategic Procurement sector, as that area feels totally neglected in the market landscape. We hope to fill this void, bringing a lot of win-win-win situations to our users.

WHAT'S THE MOST EXCITING FUTURE DEVELOPMENT IN YOUR OPINION?

Overall the iterations of AirFaas to date have been leaps and bounds, both as a platform and the people as a team, I believe we've evolved into a proper business disruptor - Say Hi to Good Buys! We have a lot of stuff in the pipeline, but perhaps the most exciting ones are Open APIs, and as I believe in solving real-world problems, the enhancing/fixing processes for our existing customer base always makes me smile.

YOU’RE BASED IN THAILAND, WHAT INSPIRED THE MOVE?

A long time ago landed at Chiang Mai International Airport, placing my feet on the ground feeling like I arrived home - I suppose that's the realization "you were born in the wrong country" - haha! When I turned 20 I promised myself, that at the age of 30 I'd be living in another continent, and after years of struggle, handling all the work/related issues - it became true! On the 11th of March 2015, I was in a metal tube over Asia with a one-way ticket towards "Home".

IS THERE SOMETHING YOU MISS ABOUT FINLAND?

Family of course comes without saying (though planes fly 2 ways ;), Summertimes at mökki, Puusauna, and of course Jaloviina & Salmiakki.

I HEAR YOU’RE ALSO A CAR MAN, WHAT’S YOUR DREAM RIDE?

I love Audi Quattro's - so an Audi Sport Quattro S1 E2 from World Rally B-Series would be epic to topple the mountainsides around northern Thailand! I've also a newfound love for my current project ~440BHP Nismo Skyline / Cefiro Crossbreed aka Black Bastard - won't probably give that one up until it either rusts on me or I'll drive it out of the track that one final time, hahaha!
