Hey, thanks for visiting my site, I'm Tim.

Born and raised in France, after some time in the USA, I settled in Germany with my wife & our three children and have been enjoying life "abroad" ever since.

I am a passionate software engineer with more than 15 years of experience in building web and desktop applications. I have been leading people and technical teams since 2010 as a tech-lead, scrum master, coach, engineering manager, chief learning officer, international public speaker, mentor and developer advocate. I have grown teams of engineers from 3 to 20 and 20 to 100. I strive when fostering cultures of exchange, respect, growth and learning both with locally and remote.


My goal is to make others be their best!

You are looking for an Engineering Manager, help in Developer Relations, Coaching, Podcasting or something similar at the interface between tech and people?

Let's talk!


I also have a few side gigs:

  • I am the host of the Developer's Journey Podcast, a weekly show bringing you the making-of stories of successful software developers to help you on your upcoming journey.
  • I created the site SeeCFP.com. I currate dozens of conference "call for papers" every week and send them out via a weekly newsletter.
  • I love mentoring/mentorship and have been advocating for it for many years. I created the Mentoring.Rocks free email course to help you grow as a mentor!
  • I am an active public speaker. I held keynotes, talks at over 70 events in the past 10 years. You can find a list of all of them on my talks page as well as find some of my slide-decks on Speakerdeck.com.

Get in touch via Twitter, LinkedIn, Dev.To and many other platforms... drop me a line at tim@timbourguignon.fr and support me on Patreon or let's catch up live.
