I’m Hubert Behaghel, a husband, father of six and VP of Engineering at Typeform. Before that I worked at Amazon, Sky, M&S and few others.
I use this blog to clarify my thinking. I am interested in tech leadership, operational excellence, forging a team spirit that combines product and engineering, and well, people.
I work not just to advance a team, a product or a business through Software Engineering. I work to advance Software Engineering through that business.
I am a keen public speaker. I support the free software movement. I have stopped fine-tuning my GNU/Linux kernel a while ago but I still enjoy evolving my NixOS setup. Emacs Lisp is bound to be the last programming language standing on my CV. I hold Alan Kay in great regard.
I am French and British, currently living in Barcelona, Spain.
