Tobias Härdeman

Tobias Härdeman

Head of Casino Operations, NetEnt AB

Tobias has a background in FinTech where he got to experience the move from a waterfall monolith to a more automated DevOps distributed setup both in terms of organization and technology. The positive effects become obvious when the transformation is done within the same company and serving the same user base - the preconditions are the same, the result is not. Today, Tobias is working to make these changes happen at NetEnt, taking the company towards a more agile and customer friendly offering.
