Welcome to another episode of CTO Studio! Today I’m sitting down to talk with my good friend Sigalit Tsadok, current CTO for the start up company Kelvi. On this episode, you’ll hear about Sigalit’s journey to working with Kelvi, as well as how she become interested in being a CTO.
Today, you’ll also hear about why Sigalit would love to see more women in CTO positions, how computer science became her passion, and so much more!
In this episode you’ll hear:
- Why diversity in the tech world is so important.
- What is Kelvi and how is it helping physical therapists?
- How can networking help in a technology role?
- The importance of having appropriate vendors in a start up.
- What have been the biggest challenges and rewards in her career?
- And so much more!
Sigalit’s experience in the technology world has not always been dedicated to computer science. In school, she enjoyed her science classes, but computer science never felt like the right fit until she graduated and began working in her first job.
After discovering her love and talent in the field, she began working for Pet Wireless, a company with a unique purpose and product. Pet Wireless, or Tailio, tracks and monitors cat health by placing a sensor under a litter box. The program can track features such as weight and trips to the litter box.
On this episode of CTO Studio, I spent some time talking to Sigalit about what exactly Kelvi is. She described Kelvi as a device used by physicians and physical therapists for patients who need cryotherapy or heat therapy. It changes temperatures within seconds, and can function from a mobile app that is downloaded by the person administering the therapy. How it differs from others on the market is it requires absolutely no ice in order to become cold!
