In today’s podcast, we are really honored to introduce you to our guest who is from UAE and building technology & product for one of the fastest growing travel websites, which is UAE’s first full-service travel e-commerce website. And he is  Albert Dias. Albert is currently playing his role as Co-founder & CTO at Musafir.com.

While talking to Albert we had many interesting learnings, here are some of Albert’s wisdom of thoughts:

  1. Hire people to whom you yourself like to work for.
  2. People who can understand and clear thinking about the problem.
  3. The last important thing is skills. Prefer people who are more skilled, rather than more experienced.
  1. Hunger & willingness to learn
  2. Ability to look at the future
  3. Ability to understand people
