Alexander Ljung launched SoundCloud in 2008 with co-founder and CTO, Eric Wahlfross. As CEO, he oversees vision, strategy, and leadership, overseeing a global team of over 200 people. Alex was named 2013 European "Tech Entrepreneur of the Year", “2012 Social Maverick” and through his leadership, SoundCloud was featured as one of Fast Company’s “2012 Most Innovative Companies" for giving the internet a voice. Alex’s personal interests lie in the positive change and wider societal impact technology and design can have. In his spare time, he enjoys listening, traveling, geeking out on academic theories, diving shipwrecks and trying to not break his foot in South American coastal cities. He’s also a proud member of The Cloud Appreciation Society. Prior to co-founding SoundCloud, Alex began his career working in sound design for feature films and obtained a M.Sc. degree from The Royal Institute of Technology. He was born in the UK, grew up in Sweden and splits his time between SoundCloud’s HQ in Berlin and the U.S. office’s in San Francisco and New York.
