04/2014 to 01/2018 CTO - Associate @ Enjoy Your Business & EnjoyUp.io
I joined Enjoy Your Business as it started as a single developer. Soon we hired
a talented designer. We developed the first version of the application that meant to be "like
minority report" with the words of the founder.
Today I'm the technical lead and referent and an associate of the company. We are a team of a dozen
people counting five developers and a designer.
Enjoy Your Business is an application witch could be described in one sentence as "productivity
through communication and fun". We want to provide a new type of interface to allow the
collaborators of a team or company to pilot their projects, communicate and manage their strategy
with agility and fun.
10/2010 to 11/2013 Lead Developer @ Evaneos
I was the first dev hired by Evaneos. Back then we were located in the incubator of the Central
When I left, after moving location five times, we were about twenty people with developers,
marketers production managers and so. And Evaneos had just raised investment for the second time.
My personal situation was evolving and I needed to turn my attention to my family. It was time for
me to leave Paris again and get time for them.
Evaneos is a platform that allows people to buy a trip personally crafted with a local agent from
the country you want to leave for.
07/2009 to 01/2014 Web developement @ Self-Entrepreneur
At that time, I wanted to be more than a developer. I also had my own idea about development that
did not fit with my previous experiance. So I decided to become a freelance.
Initially I wanted to develop web applications and develop a consulting and formation activity. I
I established in Nevers witch is a small city with a very low activity. I encountered
difficulties to find customers and to have them understand that developing a web application was
worth "a little bit" more than 200.00€ (not kidding so much).
The good point is that a took time to develop my own framework and libraries, witch even though not
used by anybody else than me gave me the opportunity to expand my knowledge about object oriented
programming. Thanks to that I learnt and experimented PHP, C++, Ruby and lots of other stuff. I also
learnt to say "No" when a project is not well defined and the contract ot conditions not fair.
08/2008 to 07/2009 Lead Developer @ Trois x Huit
I joind Trois x Huit as a training during my formation. After two month I was already leading a
team of developers, all trainees.
I had the opportunity to work on various projects with various technologies. After my formation I
was hired with a long term contract.
Trois x Huit, witch does not exist anymore, was a web agency in Paris.
07/2007 Database assistant @ Accord Hôtels
I entered the company as a training during my formation. I spent three months in their office based
in a five stars hotel. Quite a pleasant place.
I had for mission to migrate a database from MS Access to SQL Server. It was rude but I learnt a lot
on those tools and on database. Most of all I learnt that the choice of a tool or a technology is
not only a matter of hype, but a combination of cost and scale.
I was working for reporting branch of the company. At the end of the training I was offered to join
the company. I declined as I had to get my degree.
2005 to 2009 European Master in computer science @ Cs2i de Bourgogne
Programming was my first choice of formation back in High School. I made the mistake to listen
people saying that IT had no future. I was young and it was 1998 and the start of the Internet
I followed the formation and got the Master degree. I gained competences in object oriented
programming (PHP, C++, Java), network management and project management.
2002 to 2003 Third year degree in sales executive for agribusiness @ ESCI
When I left the management school I decided to reorient to biology with was best fitted to my
I followed a formation as sales executive in agribusiness. I learnt selling and marketing.
2001 to 2002 Third year degree in management @ ESC CLermont
After my technical degree, i realised that I would never have opportunity to be anything else than a
technician. I made decision to follow my studies. After a long thinking I chose to enter a
management school in Clermont-Ferrand.
I stopped after the first year. I realized that that kind of formation was not for me. Most of
people I met did not think as I did. In retrospection I think I was laking maturity and was a bit
too dreamy. But I keep thinking that even though idealistic my opinions were not wrong. They were
just not yet mature.
Most of my learning their was about me. Even though I discovered management and marketing.
1999 to 2001 2 year Degree - Biotechnology @ ISVT Le Puy En Velay
Microbiology and biotechnology was my second choice. I prefered IT. But I listened the wrong people.
That formation was really interesting and gave me some knowledge I would miss today. I learnt the
job of laboratory technician, discovered the quality measures in food and agribusiness.
