Shashank Samala is a Tempo co-founder and is the VP of Product. Previously, Shashank was instrumental in spinning up Square in New York City. While at Square, he was struck by how slow the hardware iterations for the credit card readers were (months to years), while on the software side, iterations were measured in hours. Determined to help electrical engineers build their hardware faster, he co-founded Tempo Automation. With Shashank’s vision, Tempo has built a robotic factory that can take electrical engineers’ projects from design-to-order-to-assembled circuit boards in hand in as fast as 3 days.
