Who we are

Founder story

At Buddywise, we make workplaces safer. This singular goal inspired Buddywise co-founders Yigit Arin and Lamin Faye to build the world’s first fully automated safety monitoring platform, which today helps customers in heavy industry prevent workplace injuries and fatalities.

Yigit and Lamin, seasoned technology professionals who share a passion for innovation, saw an opportunity to usher in a new era of workplace safety in heavy industry – one that enables data-driven decisions and continuous improvements to safety practices and monitoring.

Lamin, CEO of Buddywise, has served in various roles across Europe such as VP of Safety and Director of Digitalization at Swedish energy giant, Vattenfall. In 2018, Lamin studied computer vision at Singularity University and was captivated by advances in the field made possible by breakthroughs in deep learning.

Lamin believed computer vision, applied to workplace safety, could dramatically improve safety and productivity by taking safety monitoring beyond the era of paper and pens. At the time, no service used computer vision solely to improve and automate workplace safety monitoring.

Yigit, Buddywise’s CTO, is a creative problem solver and seasoned engineer with a decade of experience managing large codebases for products used by millions. He was part of a global engineering team for Office 365 at Microsoft before joining Spotify in 2016. He started as a software engineer and later served as a Product Manager for new markets, overseeing product and technology.

Yigit was inspired to found Buddywise because of its potential to improve safety and business outcomes in sectors that haven’t yet embraced cutting-edge technology.

Today, Yigit, Lamin and the Buddywise team have a shared mission to build on the company’s growing traction in the marketplace and bring Buddywise to every workplace it can help make safer. The team is driven by Yigit’s and Lamin’s vision that started the Buddywise journey: seeing customers use Buddywise insights to take concrete actions in the real world that make an impact.
