Crono Talks with Deckx

Hey Croners! Welcome to Crono Talks, a series of interviews with projects and people that have blown our minds. We aim to bring inspiration and give deserved credit to those working hard and with great ideas.

In this episode, we’ll have Victoria Ceccaroni, CEO and Founder of Deckx, the digital space designed to match tech talents and companies. In the first half of the interview, we’ll get to know her a bit and then we’ll focus on the project.

Crono Talks ep.6: Deckx

Hey Victoria, we like to start with a warm-up: describe yourself in 10 words!

I do my best not to take things too seriously.

Now, can you give us a little overview of your career and projects?

“The dawn of the career” would be the best way to describe it.

I graduated from university, ended up in the coding school 42 Roma and immediately founded Deckx. I have extensive experience in organising social events, from official conferences to paintball retreats. I also have the habit of founding clubs, so most of my experience is tuning in with people.

How did you discover your passion for tech and startups?

I started playing with Python during my masters, to attempt to build my own data models.

In the meantime, I also discovered these things called start-ups during a random start-up weekend in Leeds.

From there, the vibe was too awesome to stay away. I never thought I’d become a founder myself, but I always knew I wanted to be surrounded by visionary people.

Any advice for tech-savvy people with ambitions?

It’s easier than it seems if you break it down into really small, achievable tasks.

Start simple and build, the key is to not get overwhelmed. There’s no wrong way to do things anyway, just ways that work and that don’t.

Do you feel the gap in women's participation in the tech ecosystem?

Oh yes, I also feel it’s changing, the younger down the generation line we go.

However, people don’t often think about “invisible barriers” for women in tech, especially in positions of leadership.

There’s nobody shouting “no girls here”, but we overlook how unwelcoming some of these environments are: you need to work around tricky relationships and dynamics designed on what used to be a boys-only club.

It’s changing, but I sometimes encounter the echo of the inheritance we’ve received from the past.

Inside Deckx

How does it feel to be the co-founder of Decks?

A different type of enthusiasm: thanks to the people I met along the way, I can see the scale of positive impact Deckx could achieve, and this energises me in a different way.

How would you describe the project?

Challenging – flipping a system so ingrained in people’s minds is said to be impossible.

Recruitment systems have changed a lot since the 2000s. The logic is simple: create a platform where any candidate can create a profile, getting instant checks on what they write followed by only the best job offers on the market that suit their individual preferences.

If this isn’t the case, offer precise indications of what to do in order to achieve the role they want.

What's the story behind it?

Essentially, the way one applies for an opportunity is old-fashioned and tedious. If you’re a candidate, what you often have to do ranges from applying to numerous listings to experiencing ghosting, and it’s often not easy to determine if the opportunity you receive is the best one for you. 

We would like to ensure that when it comes to change, you have the chance to receive all the open opportunities at that moment that are in line with your desires, allowing you to choose your future.

What are your favourite memories about it and your future goals?

Endless nights with the tech team seeing what wonder kids they are and feeling grateful to be surrounded by geniuses. (imho).

Why should professionals join Deckx?

Because they would likely be the early adopters of the biggest platform for finding tech jobs in the world.
