It Takes Three Programmers to Change the World

2020-01-14 - As a young scholar, Eric Bowman had no interest in any kind of business-related activities. And certainly not leadership and management. His dream? He wanted to become a physicist. “An academic lifestyle was kind of perfect for me,” so he thought. As the Senior Vice President of engineering at TomTom, Berlin, he supervises over 2,000 engineers. That’s quite a transition for someone unwilling to take up the challenge of leadership. In this podcast, Tobi interviews Eric, discussing the critical milestones in his career, including how he ‘cheated’ his way through an interview at Maxis after reading a book he purchased on Amazon in 1995. He also sheds some light on his belief that: “three good programmers can change the world.”
