by Hadean Team

We are delighted to announce the expansion of our company with the hires of Lars Koschin – VP Engineering, Alistair Thorpe – VP Customer Success and Mihail Mikulaninec – Head of QA. 

As we continue to execute and accelerate, our major focus has been to recruit more experienced people to help us continue to build and ship new products and scale the business. On the recruitment of these significant additions, Chief Executive Officer Craig Beddis said, “Hiring the right people at the right time is a critical success factor to support our scale and growth plans. With these three very experienced hires, I am confident that we have once again added people with the right DNA, knowledge and skill needed to continue to execute our plans.”

Lars Koschin 

VP Engineering  

Lars has a wealth of experience to bring to Hadean in leading engineering and technical teams, plus commercial acumen of running successful gaming companies and scaling for 200 – 4000 people. As VP Engineering, he’ll be continuing to build the Engineering team, ensuring we’re able to keep delivering our product to an incredible standard and creating a delightful developer experience to our customers. 

Hadean creates a friendly work environment with the right balance of focus for the goals and being creative to solve problems of the future. It ignites your inner desire to give the best for the team you work with and for the company as a whole. All this paves the way to create successful products for our customers. I am excited to join this outstanding team because I have always wanted to work on technology that is uncharted territory and will shape the future of software.”

Alistair Thorpe

VP Customer Success

Alistair is perfectly positioned to lead our customer success delivery having been both VP Product at SG Digital and Director of Pre-sales at OpenBet previously. Alistair has an evident passion for delivery and customer happiness, together they are a powerful combination for this role and building the right processes and systems to ensure the success of our customers. 

“Joining Hadean has been a real pleasure and I now feel almost like part of the furniture, everyone has been incredibly friendly and helpful, which was a relief as starting a new job in a new industry remotely whilst locked down in my flat was pretty daunting. Hadean are at a real turning point with major new customers now endorsing (with their chequebooks) the awesome product that is Aether. I have been given a great opportunity to be part of bringing Aether to market but also to work with the teams to realise the pretty much unlimited potential of the underlying Hadean platform which is going to be far wider reaching that just simulations.”

Mihail Mikulaninec 

QA Lead

Michael has been appointed as our QA Lead to ensure our code is tested and ready for our customers and that we’re constantly improving our products. Previous to Hadean, he was working on innovative QA work with a strong development background and as such is a great advocate for innovations and automation in QA. Michael is a music geek, mostly electronic, underground house and techno, and used to be a DJ back in Ukraine.

Some of my biggest passions are science and tech. This is why joining Hadean was a real match for me. Even though the technology and stack itself were a bit different than I’ve been used to, it’s been a real pleasure to become a part of the team of really smart, intelligent and creative individuals. Almost immediately I’ve realized that people here are sharing the enthusiasm in research and tech. I am looking forward to help all of us to make the valuable and innovative product that both us and customers will enjoy to use.”
