Christophe Antoine

Talend’s third-ever employee, Christophe Antoine, joined the startup in May 2006 as R&D Engineer Lead. He designed and developed the first public release of Talend Open Studio, and then — as the only engineer willing to dress up and talk to customers — moved into sales as the Solutions Engineering Manager. Christophe helped staff Talend’s US operations and expand the company’s footprint in EMEA. Today, in his role as VP of Global Solutions Engineering, he is responsible for the recruitment and enablement of our Solutions Engineers and Solution Architects worldwide.
