VP Engineering at ZemantaLinkedIn profile
Manager of Managers
Hi fellow mentors! My name is Florjan and I currently serve as VP Engineering at Zemanta, formerly a medium-sized startup in adtech space, which was acquired by Outbrain in 2017. I’ve been at the company for more than 5 years, I started as a software engineer and later switched to management. I currently lead an engineering org of 25 engineers, mostly focusing on growing the team, scaling our systems to keep up with business growth and merging Zemanta and Outbrain tech stacks post-acquisition. Outside of work I read a lot of books, try to keep my technical skills sharp and spend as much time as possible with my 18-month daughter. I’m looking forward to learn and to help!
Hey, I'm available every Monday at 2:00 PM (GMT)
