About me

Quick facts

I'm French, married with two kids, I lived in Nîmes, Paris and New York. I graduated from Ecole Polytechnique. I run and practice taekwondo. On my own time I'm a technology junkie.

As a developer I'm highly proficient in JavaScript, Java, HTML/CSS, and love learning new languages. I am particularly interested in working on user interaction and bringing satisfaction to clients. People say I am extremely demanding when it comes to quality and polishing.

As a project manager, I'm capable of making hard decisions, and managing short term priorities and long term investment. I'm experienced in discussing features, priorities and risks with clients, partners and providers, and working in a highly international context.

As leader I try to establish a personal relation with every member of the team and find the right trigger to motivate everybody. I do my best to put people in the zone where they will be both happy with what they are doing and efficient in the way they do it. My ultimate goal is to align the interest of the team and the company to create the perfect work environment.

Resume

Currently, I work as Deputy CTO for Oscaro. As a side effect, I'm adding python and django to my skill-set, and I enjoy working for an internal client.
