If Amir didn't have 15+ years experience as a system architect, senior developer and R&D manager to contend with, he'd probably be a beach bum, spending most of his time relaxing by the sea. Instead, he runs the R&D department at waze, working for the weekends when he gets to spend time with his three young boys and navigate the waves via surfboard and/or sailboat.
Amir co-founded waze after founding and acting as CEO of X.L.Net Ltd., a customized software solution, and serving as a R&D manager in Comverse, specializing in open-source technologies.
Amir holds a B.Sc in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Cum Laude) as well a M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering, both from Minnesota State University. He's also a self-certified 'sweets' aficionado.
