I like what I do, enjoy the people who I am with, and probably work too many hours.
My name is Benjamin Alldritt and I am the Chief Operating Offcer at Kumera Oy in Riihimäki, Finland. After graduating with a double B.S. in Engineering (Mechanical and Engineering Management), I ventured off on a Fulbright grant to Finland to study exoskeletons. While I am not working on exoskeleton systems now, I read up on the latest research and developments.
What does a COO do?
Good question. Really anything. Look over what is wanted to be done, set your targets, do what needs to be done to get there, review over what was done, readjust if necessary, repeat. Right now, I am working on software development, continually training myself to learn new languages, and figure out software solutions to problems the company might be encountering.
What do you do?
Organizing company-wide projects, bringing solutions to actual problems to the attention of company, and my own projects that will move the company forward. My primary interests now include A.I./machine learning, e-learning platforms, automated design assistants, and robotics.
