Evelyn Landman serves as co-founder and CTO of proteanTecs and oversees all tech and R&D activities; including a multi-disciplinary team of experts in the fields of chip design, machine learning and data analytics. Offering over 30 years of experience in her field, she is best known for her target-driven approach, determination, patience and readiness to roll up her sleeves.
Evelyn is married with three kids – the two oldest boys are following in her footsteps and studied electrical engineering, and her youngest daughter is not yet in college. She moved to Israel from Uruguay at age 21 and immediately started her B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering from the Technion Israel Institute of Technology, all without yet speaking a word of Hebrew. At first, she started out studying Chemistry but soon realized that her true passion was electrical engineering.
During her studies, she started working at Intel and continued there for a total of 11 years. Later, when she was pregnant with her 3rd child, she co-founded Mellanox. She was the only woman among the 9 founders! While at Mellanox for 17 years she grew her department to 300 employees.
She eventually left Mellanox to focus on new endeavors. She wanted to build something new from scratch and recognized an industry wide need that she could help solve.
In her spare time, Evelyn has been playing on the Haifa women’s volleyball league for the last 9 years. She enjoys long walks, and even hiked the Camino de Santiago from France to Spain. When she needs to unwind and clear her head, she enjoys playing games on her phone.
Her kids are all grown up now and extremely proud of her. She invests a lot in educating those around her and believes in mentorship. It is important for Evelyn to provide an open door and opportunity to women. It always makes her happy to see a bright ambitious girl make it. Her message to girls would be: it’s up to you, work hard and you can achieve anything.
