My name is Kevin Deldycke, I'm a high-tech Engineering Manager from Paris, France.

Short Bio

I held various positions in several industries and sectors as VP, Product Manager, Founding Engineer and Consultant.

After 15+ years of relevant engineering work, and 2+ years of hands-on management experience, I now build teams from scratch with self-sustaining culture, and my intent is to keep doing so.

Enabling engineers, leading managers, and make them feels productive is the most impactful thing I can bring to the table. So I'm always on the lookout for high-tech management position, in fast growing start-ups with ambitious vision.

Most relevant experience was in growing a team from 0 to 12 at a world-class cloud computing provider. We built up the whole IAM ecosystem, as well as the Billing and Payment stack.



  • 👔 VP of Engineering at Scaleway (Developer to Manager, 2020) - In which I go back on my career transition from Software Developer to Enginneering Manager, and growing a team from 0 to 12 to care about a critical part of a cloud provider.

  • 🧘‍♂️ Bien-être au travail (Putain de code, S01E09, 2018) - I was invited in this French podcast to discuss well-being at work. Sounds dull, but was a great oportunity for the hosts to share their personal anecdotes and stories on the job, and for me to comment on my first few months as a rookie manager.

  • 🤿 Take a Plunge Into One of the World's Deepest Indoor Swimming Pool (The Venue Report, 2017) - A quick recap on how I entered the world of scuba diving, following by my experience at Nemo 33.

  • 🤘 Paroles d’Artistes: Cool Cavemen (OxyRadio, 2009) - On this French webradio, I explain how and why I came to advise the Cool Cavemen band to release all their music under a Creative Commons license.
