A few weeks ago, I had the opportunity to sit down with Vlad Shmunis, Founder & CEO of RingCentral, and talk all things tech and entrepreneurship. Vlad has been in technology for over 25 years, and brings a lot of experience especially in the telecommunications space. RingCentral has been a true innovator in phone systems for small businesses, and Vlad kindly shared his insights with us from his past experiences.
Below you’ll find Vlad’s full bio, as well as the video interview we did a few weeks back. We hope you enjoy the interview and gain some insights. And be sure to follow RingCentral on Twitter (@RingCentral) and like them on Facebook! RingCentral is also hiring a summer public relations intern this summer.
And as an added bonus, RingCentral has posted two summer internships on the newly launched Teens in Tech Jobs! If you’re interested in either becoming a Social Media Intern, or a Public Relations Intern, head over to Teens in Tech Jobs and apply today!
