Mehrdad Fatourechi

BroadbandTV Corp
Chief Technology Officer (CTO)
I am currently the CTO of BroadbandTV Corp (BBTV), a leading digital entertainment company in Canada, focusing on building tools to help content creators. In the past few years, I have been mostly responsible for shaping the product vision, strategic product management, strategic program management and innovation management at BBTV. This has led to building a number of ground-breaking products for content creators including our flagship web applications, "VISO Catalyst" and "VISO NOVI". In particular, under my leadership, we've designed and built several patent-pending products including modules to optimize metadata/thumbnails of videos on YouTube, finding collaborators for content creators, tools for discovering and efficiently managing pirated videos and providing easy-to-understand actionable insights for our clients, amongst many others. In order to achieve the above goals, I've built and managed a team of more than 30 bright & talented professionals [researchers, developers (mostly LAMP stack), user experience and user interface designers, QA engineers, IT specialists and product/project/team managers. This hard-working and dedicated team has been working very hard to deliver the maximum value for the business.
Do what you are passionate about and not necessarily what is currently hot in the market or your parents/friends want you to do. Learn to code and figure out what the industry really wants. Look for a company where you feel you will love the culture.
