Key Accomplishments

I’m a software development expert and startup executive, with experience in mobile, search engines, and high-performance computing, across 15+ years of work, mainly in startup companies. A veteran of the IDF's elite technology unit 8200 top program, with interdisciplinary training and experience in science and industry - I thrive on the challenges of creating robust and useful software services to serve millions of users. The project I'm most proud of is my biological search engine which helped scientists understand the results of hundreds of biological experiments, spawning at least 50 published articles.

Think Ran is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Daniel Cohen
We worked together at Pingjam  •  Co-Founder & CTO, Pingjam. Previously cto, dna studio.
Ran makes a great entrepreneur and co-founder because he thinks and acts holistically. Although he comes from a tech background he masters s ... ocial skills and human interactions. He debates, thinks and executes by logic not emotions. And as important as he's business skills I had a great time working with him on Pingjam and would wholeheartedly do it all over again.
Elliot Hool
We worked together
Ran is sharp, highly analytical and flexible enough to realise there's always a way - and he'll find it.
Elnor Rozenrot
We worked together at Pingjam
Ran is a great entrepreneur. In the course of a year he helped lead Pingjam from a nascent idea to a product that served 1,500 app develope ... rs and over 13 million users. His ability to get stuff done and to solve very complex challenges quickly and efficiently was a huge asset to our young startup. He is committed, knows to focus on the important stuff and is an all-around great guy. Ran is the best co-founder you could ever have. I'm truly proud to have worked with him and I'll start another company with Ran in a heartbeat.
Arnon Klein
We worked together at Targetize
Ran is a jack of all trades, and an expert in developing efficient innovative technological solutions. This is exactly what a young startup ... needs: someone who can carry the load wherever it is necessary (incl. business development, customer support, product management) and base the solution on solid technological infrastructure. Ran is a natural leader, the sort that leads the troops in the trenches, and used to being hands-on. I'd take him as a partner anytime.
We worked together
He was great before, and he will be great the next time around

Elnor Rozenrot
We worked together at Pingjam  •  Chief Marketing Officer, Unomy and Mentor, The Founder Institute.
Elnor is the CEO I would hire to run my company. He is intelligent, communicative, persuasive, and just a bit ruthless.
