Jan Zizka

Jan Zizka was born with pliers and a battery in his hands. He added math and coding to his toolbox, earned his PhD, and ended up at MIT playing with cameras, optics and algorithms. When he realized that he didn't need to sleep, he co-founded the 3D vision company Photoneo with 3 priorities in mind: automate, automate, automate. Knowing there was more progress to be made with these priorities, Jan added mobile robotics, robotic picking and fulfillment software to his workbench to start BRIGHTPICK. Jan can now really focus on those three priorities and one more - to have fun!
