In 2001, Yadid founded the embedded software group of Passave Ltd (an optical communication startup). There he designed all of the software for its first generation of fiber to the home (FTTH) communication devices that were deployed in millions of homes in Japan, Korea and China. The company's huge success led it to be acquired by PMC-Sierra a global leader in communication and storage semi-conductor manufacturing, one of the largest deals in that space. Yadid was later appointed to be  the director of software of the fiber to the home division in PMC-Sierra where he oversaw all software research and development activities of the company's optical communications devices.

Prior to that, Yadid joined Comverse technologies, one of the world’s leading provider of software and systems enabling value-added services for voice, messaging, mobile Internet and mobile advertising. He was part of the core team of a revolutionary in house startup that designed the worlds first mobile social network in 2000.

Before joining Comverse, Yadid was a Software developer in Mennen Medical, a medical devices manufacturer. In Mennen, his focus was on extending the communication capabilities of existing medical systems, enabling them to connect to other legacy systems and integrated them successfully in a number of hospitals.

Yadid attained his B.Sc. in Mathematics and Computer science from the Ben-Gurion University in Israel in 1999 and  attained his executive MBA awarded jointly from Northwestern Kellogg school of management and Tel-Aviv University in 2008.
