Life Lessons: Don’t sweat it!

Jason Soroko of Sectigo

Jason Soroko, CTO-IoT for Sectigo tells Jeremy Cowan he expects predictive maintenance to have a lasting impact on all our lives.

IoT Now: As a child what job did you want to have when you grew up?

Jason Soroko: In general, any job that involved applied math interested me. I have been lucky enough to have been in or around that subject for most of my working life.

IoT Now: If you had one business lesson to share with your younger self what would it be?

Jason Soroko: I would tell my younger self to not sweat the small stuff.

IoT Now: Without naming and shaming, tell us about your worst ever boss.

Jason Soroko: You might not believe me, but I have not had a bad boss. Again, I am very lucky.

IoT Now: Which Internet of Things (IoT) use case has recently fired your imagination?

Jason Soroko: Any time I encounter connected sensors for the purpose of predictive maintenance, the implications for cost savings and new business models is incredibly compelling. It could change the way we do many things.

IoT Now: What has been your most memorable business travel experience?

Jason Soroko: A couple of times a year I am able to bring family with me and these experiences are always memorable for me in the best way possible.

IoT Now: What lessons have you learned from doing business in other countries or organisations?

Jason Soroko: People are generous and compassionate in every location I have been. Working globally has allowed me to see that we are really a human community.
