Audrys Kažukauskas

HomeToGo
CTO
Audrys Kažukauskas has been building the world’s leading metasearch engines for more than 12 years now. It all started back in 2006, when he became Tech Lead at the flight metasearch startup SWOODOO, which then quickly rose to the leading position in German-speaking countries. The engine, based on a complex multi-technology distributed platform, was rated at the time as the most innovative and the fastest in the sector. In 2010 the business was acquired by KAYAK - the biggest travel metasearch for flights, hotels and rental cars on the planet. Audrys became Director of Engineering at KAYAK, and later, VP Technology. Armed with expert knowledge of the global travel metasearch market, in 2014 Audrys became CTO at HomeToGo. He built a team of 70+ developers and data scientists, and together with them, from scratch, created the world’s largest metasearch engine for vacation rentals.
Audrys is also an experienced Agile practitioner and was one of the early adopters of Extreme Programming. He is a strong believer in Lean environments and developer empowerment. Besides software development and technology, his main areas of focus are building winning tech teams for technology startups and fast sustainable product development at scale.
