Benjamin Pipat, Chief Solutions Officer of Technology Solutions at Jellyfish, discusses his career journey, inspirations, and future trends in the industry

With a degree in mechanics and computer science, Benjamin Pipat’s career in the technology industry began as a management consultant. Having a personal passion for wine and witnessing everyone’s challenge to choose the right bottle, Pipat left the sector to start a mobile-first wine business with its own recommendation engine. “This is where I really learned code and found my way in the industry,” he says.

Since then, Pipat has held different engineering roles, founding other companies along the way before joining Jellyfish in 2020 as Chief Technology Solutions Officer when his startup Seelk was acquired.

Pipat’s favourite thing about the engineering world is the passion of those around him. “What’s amazing about working with software engineers is that their job is also their passion. Solving problems in an elegant and efficient manner is almost like a game, it's a series of problems to be solved on a day-to-day basis.”

“This is really the reason why I focused my career in technology,” he adds. “Passion is the number one quality I look for when we recruit, because people who are working on something they are passionate about drive greater results and inspire those around them.”

One of Pipat’s proudest achievements in his career has been recruiting, growing and managing technology teams, bringing together very smart people into a single team working on a project. “Working with a team that will go abroad on week-long hackathons that they consider as holidays is what makes this industry very special”
