LinkedIn profile

Engineering Manager since 2014 for BlaBlaCar, one of most ambitious european unicorn "We bring freedom, fairness and fraternity to the world of travel". Leading talented Site Reliability Engineers responsible for BlaBlaCar databases is a daily challenge, it is all about finding the right balances: between consolidation and innovation to keep the team energy at a constant high, between designing and delivering a vision to acquire inner and outer "buy-in", between letting engineers grow in autonomy and helping them from your experiences... At BlaBlaCar we have a value called "Share More Learn More" and I was always grateful to find leaders and mentors to help me unlock many doors. It is now the moment to dedicate a bit of my time for others!
