- Philippe Donon, Head of Engineering @ ManoMano
My name is Philippe, I’m 33 years old, I’m from Bordeaux, but I have lived in Barcelona for more than 7 years. I have been working in eCommerce for 10+ years. I’m passionate about architecture as I started my career as architect in a french marketplace, driving ambitious projects like introducing a new catalogue architecture using kafka, MongoDB, Cassandra when those technologies were still in beta in 2013 ! Then I discovered the world of performance and observability and it has been such a cool venture to lead the architecture and performance department in Privalia back in 2016. Then I joined ManoMano in 2018, where I saw the company grow from 80 people in the Tech team to more than 400. I had the chance to collaborate with the Bordeaux and Barcelona office opening.

However, the JVM and Spring Boot ecosystems remain the domains in which he retains the most knowledge and interest.
