    Engineering Manager


    Oct 2014 - Sep 2018

    I've been working with multiple teams here at Prezi, doing 1-on-1 career and also team coaching. I care deeply about my teams' health, making sure their communication and processes are working smoothly, the team setup is ideal and everyone gets to grow in the teams. I am at my teams' service whatever they'd need. I do my best to represent the Prezi engineering culture both inside and outside the teams and the company, I do hiring, performance evaluations, I work on multiple high-level projects that go across the engineering and product organization such as our mentoring framework and hiring pipeline optimisation. I've planned, driven and executed multiple organisational level initiatives such as optimising our hiring process, creating an internship program and forming a peer mentoring structure.

    Chief Technical Officer

    Mar 2011 - Dec 2012

    Arukereso is a part of a price comparison engine family all across Europe. I was coordinating the IT team, acted as the "translating proxy" between my senior management peers and the teams. I actively took part in the projects (planning and implementation) both on the business side and as an IT "advisor". I was generally responsible for the architecture of the system and making sure the whole company group aligns with the tech strategy.

    You're a great engineer.
    Become a great engineering leader.
