Otto Ruettinger
Head of Product - Jira
Atlassian
Otto is a bit of an extremist. His wife likes to say that: "He is the most competitive person I know", to which Otto likes to say "YES! Nailed it!!!".
This type A personality is all about setting *big* goals, like going from pack a day smoker to Ironman triathlete - Otto truly believes anything is possible. The key is creating a strategy, breaking it into goals and ever smaller chunks then relentlessly going after them. That’s the approach he’s used in life as well as leading the 150+ team that builds the Jira cloud platform.
