We hope you had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones and are feeling energized to start the new year! January is a time for new beginnings, goal-setting, and resolutions. To kick off our newsletter for the new year, we’d like to introduce you to the senior members of our team who work tirelessly behind the scenes to encourage and support the entire team from start to finish.
Head of Research and Big Data
Meet Ornuma Charoenthongtrakul, our Head of Research and Big Data. Ornuma, or Orn for short, holds a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and a Master’s degree in Information Technology. She is currently pursuing a second Master’s degree in Big Data Engineering and is one of the co-founders of Mobipax. Ornuma has experience in software development projects for logistics, accounting, retailing, and the world’s first handheld-device sales onboard solution for the Qualifier Group (Swissair, Sabena, Austrian Airlines). Her areas of expertise include Order Management, Revenue Management, Inventory Management, Schedule Management, Fares Management, Departure Control, and Direct Distribution Channels, including e-commerce. She has a keen interest in big data, data lakes, cloud computing, mobile computing, and IoT and will be focusing on these areas as the Head of Research and Big Data.
“When we first started, we only had a few people helping each other, it was tiring but fun at the same time. Now, with more than 22 people on the team, we function like a family, small but extraordinary and very efficient,” says Ornuma.
Ornuma also notes that the Mobipax app is user-friendly and easy to use, making it suitable for both small and large airlines seeking a low-cost investment system. “The most outstanding feature of Mobipax, in my opinion, is ‘eCommerce’ or ‘sales on board,’ which is a merchandising system that can be used both online and offline. Additionally, the UX/UI design is top-notch, and we can quickly add any features according to customer requests as the backend support is always ready,” she says.
Head of Product Development
Next, let’s meet Angkoon Jiriyasin, our Head of Product Development. Angkoon brings a wealth of experience in airline IT solutions. After graduating from the US, he spent 15 years in various positions designing and developing solutions for small and large airlines. He has a deep understanding of airline e-commerce solutions, open-source content management systems, and large-scale messaging platforms. As Head of Product Development, he has designed solutions for leading airlines worldwide. Angkoon is also a co-founder of Mobipax, and his past work experiences include working as a senior programmer, Chief Programmer and Architect, and Chief Technology Officer, overseeing PSS for Emirates Group, and leading the development of key airline solutions for Peach Aviation, Edelweiss, and Germania. He later joined WorldTicket A/S, a European PSS provider, where he designed a cloud-architected airline e-commerce solution based on an open-source platform.
“We started with a small team, working very hard day and night to keep our promise that we will be on service 24/7/365 due to our customers being in a different time zone. Later on, our team grew with more members, the senior trained the juniors and continuously supported them from the start to the end. I strongly believe that we will be an effective and professional teamwork shortly,” says Angkoon.
These senior members of our team are the backbone of our success, and we’re proud to have them on board. We hope you enjoyed getting to know them a little better!
