Work experience
Since 2017I'm now a freelancer, specializing in the React ecosystem (early adopter, since decembre 2013). I'm the React expert of Alqemist, a product studio composed of a dozen remote freelancers like me, but also take small projects on my own.
I have been involved on various projects, such as:
  • Cabestan: we delivered a complex static demo of their main software v2 redesign, as a React SPA
  • Mogment: I built the frontend architecture and many features of this React/Apollo/GraphQL for an early stage startup MVP
  • ???????: I built alone 2 React-Native mobile app for a secret customer (also helped on the Java 8 backend)
  • Hubstairs: I audited their React apps and helped implement some recommendations
  • Shotgun: I audited and migrated a quick-and-dirty ReactNative app to Expo/Apollo/React-navigation
From 2013 to 2017I have been CTO of the early stage startup Stample. Our tech stack was mostly React and Scala. We deployed our first React app in production mid-2014.Before 2013I have been a Java backend engineer, working on high traffic websites like:
  • Voyages-SNCF: main train booking website in France
  • Digiposte: a virtual document safe created by French postal service La Poste
  • RenaultShop: the e-commerce platform of the famous French car constructor
