Chief Technology Officer Burt Snover comes to Tech180 with more than a decade of experience creating innovative test and control applications. As CTO, he manages the engineering team, promoting effective collaboration to advance the company’s mission of simplifying test coverage through reconfigurable, modular platforms.
An expert in real-time hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing, Burt constantly comes up with new ideas to simplify engineering — ideas he’s able to put into practice every day at Tech180.
Burt’s career path makes him uniquely suited for the CTO position at an aerospace startup. Before becoming Tech180’s CTO, he worked in engineering at National Instruments, where he became a certified LabVIEW Architect. He held roles in support and application marketing but spent the bulk of his time in systems engineering with a focus on embedded and real-time test. These diverse roles have provided him with a deep understanding of all aspects of aerospace testing and a belief that it was possible to build a better test system.
Burt holds a degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the University of Texas at Austin. When he’s not working to advance Tech180’s engineering goals, Burt enjoys volleyball and plays keyboard in a band that performs surf rock covers of movie soundtracks.
