Krzysztof Dąbrowski - mBank - Remixing Management Systems and Escaping Technological Debt

After a career as IT Director, Krzysztof Dąbrowski became a COO at mBank - Poland's first digital bank that was a fintech before fintech was a thing.

In this episode of Leadership Deep Dive, Krzysztof Dąbrowski talks with Hendrik Deckers about his passion for "stealing like an artist" from different management systems to approach complex operational challenges and to always be learning, even if he's exhausted the learning materials from a given domain. He shares the behind-the-scenes view of building efficient operational processes and banking systems on the foundations of obsolete technologies.

He dives into a transformation program that compiled COBOL applications into .Net in real time, without stopping any systems, and another that translated a proprietary language into one they could actually find programmers for.
