EXPERIENCE

September 2016 –

CTO

Nereo (Saint-Étienne, France)
  • Take over of the leave management Saas application, following the departure of the co-founder and CTO, build with the Python Django framework and JavasScript.

 

  • Full refoundation of development environment: migrate from Vagrant to Docker, move repositories to the hosted version of GitLab.
  • Full refoundation of production environment: migrate from OVH dedicated servers manually managed to a continuous integration setup thanks to GitLab CI, Docker Cloud and Digital Ocean. Allows us to test, build Docker images and launch them automatically in 10 minutes.
  • Monitoring tools setup: Sentry to track errors, New Relic to monitor application responsiveness and Papertrail to track logs. Bugs are reported by our support team directly on GitLab, allowing us to link precisely the context of the issue with the Zendesk ticket, the associated error in Sentry and the commit fixing it.

 

  • New user and administrator interface. Split the project in two:
    • Back-end: implementation of an API to manage and use Nereo. Rewrite of many parts of the code to make the architecture more modular and efficient.
    • Front-end: brand-new interface in AngularJS designed following the feedbacks of our users, with unique features like the ability for the manager to control leave of his team directly from the schedule. Fully responsive, Nereo becomes available on smartphones and tablets.

 

  • New showcase website under WordPress to let marketing team intervene more easily on the content and the aspect of the website.
  • Several projects on building internal supervision tools, deep integrations with our CRM Pipedrive, better leads tracking with Google Analytics.

June 2016 – July 2016

Real-time telecom developer

Avencall (Lyon, France)
  • Integration of Avencall’s R&D team, editor of the open-source XiVO IPBX, following a one week training on this solution.
  • Taking part in the development of the XiVO CC software suite dedicated to call centers and reporting, based on Scala, AngularJS and Docker.
  • Improvement of the user interface of the centralized XiVO management application by integrating an open source Bootstrap template (AdminLTE).

From a technical point-of-view:

  • Development of a sports tournament management app with the Symfony 2 framework in 5 months thanks to a solid experience on this techonology.
  • Solving of a complexe problem of games planification on time slots and playgrounds, by developing a binary search algorithm.
  • Optimization of the app speed and user experience to handle 100 users per day and pikes provoked by tournaments (up to 200 users at the same time): use of websockets to limit calls to the server, use of a scalable cloud platform (Heroku).
  • Monitoring tools setup to track performance (New Relic) and errors (logs handled by Papertrail and errors reported on Slack).
