JULIEN, SUBEA PRODUCT ENGINEER

He's keen on scuba diving. Learn more about him …

I’m 35 years old. I've been with Decathlon for 11 years, since graduation. I went diving for the first time as a teenager and I resumed once I got this job. At first, it was due to business trips since, having worked as a product engineer on neoprene, I often travelled to Asia and it made me want to get back into diving. So I got my certification here up to PADI Rescue, with deepwater qualification, last year.

WHAT DO YOU DO AT SUBEA ?

What's your background ?

Having worked as a product engineer on life jackets for boats, I discovered links in terms of industrial processes with certain items of diving gaer, namely the BCD. All of a sudden, I wanted to be 100% focused on diving, so when the Subea team was put together, it was an opportunity for me to join in. Today I'm a product engineer for the scuba diving range. Once the product manager has identified the users' needs and has decided what kind of product should be made, my job is to create it in cooperation with designers and other related professionals like modellers etc... So it's about going from the idea to the technical realisation, a whole process that can be referred to as product design.

WHAT'S YOUR MOST BEAUTIFUL MEMORY OF AN UNDERWATER EXPERIENCE ?

My best memory was in Thailand during a business trip, when I had an opportunity to go diving. All the best conditions were there for a great dive : warm water, lots of fish and different species, along with extraordinary landscapes.
