Leaving Kelkoo

May 31, 2010

It’s been an amazing journey. I’ve started at Kelkoo in April 2003 as a contractor, then became permanent in September the same year. Throughout those years, I have held various engineering positions before moving to product roles, I have become passionate about the online shopping landscape, I have started this blog as a way to connect with other actors in this industry… I’ve known Kelkoo as a start-up, I’ve seen Kelkoo part of Yahoo! and Kelkoo becoming independent again… Seven years in the same company is quite a long time, but year after year the context has changed, there have been new challenges, new things to learn… until recently.

Like many actors in this industry, Kelkoo has huge challenges ahead… The management understands those challenges, and has initiated some ambitious projects… It will definitively be interesting to watch how the Kelkoo business and product will evolve in the following months and years.

For those who wonder: yes, I will go on blogging about shopping engines, at least for the months to come. Working at Kelkoo, I have always feared that the opinions expressed on this blog could give hints about what is going on internally. Now, I should have less fear to cover this exciting industry :)

Nicolas,
I still remember the first day we met in Echirolles in 2003. Now it is time to move and explore new opportunities for both of us.

Have fun with you new job.

Gilles
