Engineering luminary Devid Liik joins Milrem Robotics as CTO, to aid company's growth investment
Long-time engineering leader Devid Liik joins Milrem Robotics’ team as the Chief Technology Officer and a member of the management board. Liik joins Milrem Robotics from an engineering leadership position in Twilio where he was responsible for growing engineering teams and scaling the core backend systems of the communication industry’s leading messaging product line.
He is also the co-founder of Twilio Estonia, now one of the key multi-discipline and multi-product R&D sites in Twilio. Prior to joining Twilio, Liik held senior positions in Skype.
“Devid has extensive experience in strategic technology and engineering leadership from international scaleup companies. This will substantially help Milrem Robotics realize its strategy to invest heavily in the company’s growth and keep its market leader role in robotics when large-scale procurements hit the market,” said Kuldar Väärsi, founder and CEO of Milrem Robotics.
“I have always been drawn to innovative and meaningful things towards which smart people gravitate to. To me, Milrem Robotics is a living testimony of the great impact that bold people with passion and dedication can achieve. This is why I find it truly humbling to become part of Milrem’s journey,” said Liik, adding that his goal in that journey will be to help the engineering teams grow and meet the rapidly increasing customer demand.
Milrem Robotics’ management board has three members: in addition to Väärsi and Liik, Mikk Mägi the CFO of the company.
