Thierry Delprat

CTO, Technical Architect, Software Craftsman, 3x CTO / Founder / First engineer, Grew 2 software companies until their acquisition

I have a proven track record in bootstrapping and leading engineering activities within a startup.


My expertise includes:

- Leading technical strategy and designing pragmatic software architecture

- Building and growing the engineering team (including remote/distributed)

- Establishing processes to support and enforce the SDLC.

- Collaborating with the Product team and the leadership to identify the MVP and set key milestones.


When it makes sense, I am happy to be super hands-on and directly contribute to the code, the infrastructure or the deployment automation.


Open to Fractional CTO work and more globally any technical / architecture advisory for startups.

Work

  • Nuxeo

    As the founding Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of Nuxeo for 16 years, I orchestrated the company's evolution from a nascent startup in Paris to a robust entity culminating in a successful US acquisition.


    Here are key highlights from my journey:


    - Collaborated closely with the CEO to reboot Nuxeo: pivoting both our technological approach and business model.

    - Spearheaded the full re-architecture and redevelopment of our platform

    - Expanded the technical team's footprint across Europe, nurturing a diverse and dynamic engineering culture.

    - Relocated to the US to bolster Nuxeo's growth trajectory, establishing a dedicated technical division in the US.

    - Pioneered the transition to a Cloud-First approach, completing the execution of the full SaaS approach.

    - Conceptualized and launched Nuxeo's Artificial Intelligence offering


    The Nuxeo Platform has consistently been celebrated for its:


    - Scalability, capacity to handling evolving and growing workload demands.

    - Extensibility and pluggability, ensuring seamless integration and flexibility.

    - Cloud readiness, ensuring safe and cost efficient hosting.


    The Nuxeo technical team reached around 50 engineers in France, Portugal, UK, Japan and US.


    Nuxeo was acquired by Hyland in 2021.

  • Prolaio

    - Hire and structure the Core Engineering team

    - Design and architect the Cloud Platform (Data Pipeline / AI / Research)

    - Implement the software and the automated deployment

    - Manage Security and Compliance automatic checks


    After raising Series A, we acquired a bigger company and joining teams and technologies

  • Unilog H2H

    H2H was an internal startup effort from Unilog to acquire knowledge and build a service offer centered on collaboration tools.

    I joined H2H as the 2nd employee and CTO.


    During the 3 years business plan we achieved the following milestones:

    - Create and Grow an engineering team of 10+

    - Build the technical offering : Software selection, Engineering skills, Methodologies

    - Meet the Sales and Client acquisition goals


    Since H2H was a success, the team was "swallowed" by the bigger group: resources and knowledge were dispatched in the Unilog group.


    Unilog was then acquired by Logica and then CGI.
