Merhaba! I’m Emir Aydin.

I’m a product leader by passion, a software engineer by trade and an entrepreneur at heart.

I have started two companies, managed and built software products used by millions of people. Currently, I’m a product leader at Amazon, helping bring Twitch’s live video technology to the masses as an AWS service, enabling millions of people to access interactive live video experiences. Prior to that, I led the mobile products at Hootsuite, the leading social media management platform used by 18 million+ users and 800+ companies in the Fortune 1000.

Also, I founded Automata Solutions Inc. where we build award-winning and profitable SaaS products for tens of thousands of users.

I live in Vancouver, Canada where I discovered my newfound love for the outdoors and winter sports, especially snowboarding. I have been playing basketball as long as I can remember and I’m just starting to get into yoga.

As a proud ENTP-A, I love meeting new people, sharing ideas and debating with them, especially with the ones whom I can find something to disagree on 😉

Feel free to get in touch with me if you have anything interesting to share.
