About Me

Hi, I'm Ole Eichhorn.  I live in Westlake Village, California, which is about 45 miles north-west of Los Angeles, with my wife and a small menagerie of pets.  We have four daughters, one in college, three out, and one [adorable] granddaughter.  I've spent most of my life coding and herding coders.  In between I sail and ride bikes.  You can e-mail me here.

I'm a CTO, presently seeking a job - if you know someone I should meet please let me know.  Here's my resume, and please find me on  LinkedIn to learn more.  A perfect opportunity would be leading a technical team for a startup developing groundbreaking healthcare technology.

I was recently CTO of Hospitals and Health Systems for Teladoc Health, the leading provider of telehealth solutions, after its acquisition of InTouch Health, which I'd joined as CTO in 2016.  Improving healthcare for the world!

Previously to that I founded eyesFinder, a startup making Visual Search a reality, after I'd spent twelve years as CTO of Aperio (which was acquired by Leica), the leader in Digital Pathology.  Before that I was with PayPal (EVP/Engineering), Intuit (General Manager of web finance subsidiary), and  Digital Insight (VP/Engineering).

I am philosophical about software and I am writing thinking about writing a book.

My business teachers are Clayton Christianson (The Innovator's Dilemma, The Innovator's Solution) and Geoffrey Moore (Crossing the Chasm, Living on the Fault Line).

My philosophy gurus are Douglas Hofstadter (Godel, Escher, Bach), Richard Dawkins (The Selfish Gene, The Blind Watchmaker) and Daniel Dennett (Darwin's Dangerous Idea, Consciousness Explained).

Things I like:

  • travel

  • elegance

Things I dislike:

  • routine
  • complexity
  • self-righteousness

  • kludginess
