Meet the talent behind NuvoAir. First up: Edmund Aldrich de Leon, CTO of NuvoAir!
Since NuvoAir was founded, a top priority for the company was to build a high performing team and thriving company culture. We want to inspire and learn from one another while building a product that can make a difference.

Together we are helping respiratory patients to meaningfully improve their quality of life, while providing caregivers the right tools to improve their clinical decisions.
Today we are kicking off our team interview series! First up is our CTO Edmund Aldrich de Leon!
1. What is your position and what do you do at NuvoAir?
I am the CTO of NuvoAir which means I am in charge of the company's overall tech strategy and deeply focused on building a culture where people can give their best. I am responsible for our tech team, our tech infrastructure's security, compliance, policies, and our daily IT operations, along with being NuvoAir's innovation leader. I work closely with the business side of things to make sure the tech strategy is aligned with the organization's short and long term goals.
2. Please describe a day in the life in NuvoAir:
There’s never a dull moment at NuvoAir. As the company ramps up its growth phase, there are constantly changes happening all around. My typical day consists of coding, meetings, and playing some surviv.io with the tech team.
3. Why did you decide to work for NuvoAir?
I was sold by the conversation I had with our CEO and Founder Lorenzo about changing, improving, and saving people’s lives. I've been working in the enterprise and financial space for a long time and I needed a change of scenery. Shortly after I joined NuvoAir I understood I made the right decision.
4. What do you enjoy most about NuvoAir?
Reading all those emails and social media messages from people with respiratory problems thanking NuvoAir for improving their lives. One of the most common ways we improve their life is through drastically reducing doctor visits. It really motivates me. I feel I am changing people's lives with my work here. I think everyone here feels the same way.
5. What differentiates NuvoAir from other companies you have worked for?
Lots of startups talk about they are changing the world. From social media, to gaming companies to financial services. It makes me laugh. The truth is there is no other start-up like NuvoAir because we are practically improving people's lives. We all share the same mission and we are all passionate about it. The feeling is unreal every time someone emails us thanking us for our solutions. It’s the best feeling in the world.
6. What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I enjoy playing basketball, boxing, and sparring. This summer I went camping, climbing, and fishing for the first time. I plan to do more of those and see more of Europe.
