GoEuro hires former Microsoft partner to lead engineering team

GoEuro has hired a former Microsoft partner as its vice president of engineering.

Tomas Vocetka has more than 25 years’ experience in tech firms and start-ups including Hewlett-Packard as well as Microsoft.

Before joining the booking platform, he spent five years leading the Skype division of Microsoft in Prague, Czech Republic, most recently as a Partner GM, engineering.

In that role he led a team of engineers in Prague, Tallinn, Luxembourg, London, Palo Alto, and Redmond.

In his new role at GoEuro, Vocetka will lead GoEuro’s current 100+ strong engineering team in Berlin and help the company launch of its second office in Prague.

He said: “I’m happy to be relocating to Berlin to join GoEuro at such a pivotal time for the company.

“In a short period, GoEuro has doubled its user growth and built a skilled engineering team. I hope to be able to lead this team into an exciting future as we expand our market presence, evolve our product, and help more and more people travel hassle-free.”

GoEuro CEO Naren Shaam added: “With a solid background in building and scaling both technology and start-ups, Tomas’ experience is exactly what we need. I know our team is excited to be working with him and I’m pleased to have him with us as we look to open our second office in Prague, a city that he knows very well.

“The Czech capital has an exciting, growing tech scene and a culture of entrepreneurship which makes it the perfect location for our future plans, and a great place to find new colleagues to join us on our journey.”

GoEuro announced in January that it reached a milestone of attracting 20 million visitors to its platform per month, double what it had achieved in recent months.
