    Ran had a legal job at Microsoft. However, he wanted to help build something tangible and futuristic. Despite a formal background in the subject, he paved his path and became Ottopia’s Head of Operations. Maybe it is because he can free dive 52 meters or that he completed the Israel National Trail. The fact is, he has proven himself and is responsible for the operations team, manages hardware projects, customer needs, and deals with complex regulatory issues.
