I adjust rapidly and efficiently to any environment. The proof is in my life. Relocated from a French’s world to an English one while changing country far from every anchor previously established. Moved between many teams and projects while being promoted continuously. Had to learn quickly new technologies and to be efficient within a few days. Rising from top companies to incredible ones while still moving across the United States.
In every position I was placed, I took the lead to improve the current situation or to put in place practices with the people around me. I am not a loud talker, but I bring pieces to every system at a regular pace to have a final result that could benefit every engineer as well as the company. I cannot stay in place and do the minimum -- I am naturally entrepreneur and want to innovate and push the limit of every assignment. I convey my love of performance to everyone who works with me and share as much as I can by presenting, emails or Slack any detail to bolster the team.
Expert in doing. Think, plan and execute. I design and write just enough to have the team understand the direction and to lift apparent impediments. I always have daily objectives and never jump in code until a first plan can be presented and then iterate. I master a balance between analyzing and coding which allows me to have a steady delivery cadence. I polish user interfaces slowly while bringing more features which, with time, create the best experience for the user. Same for performance, usability, and tests: iterating is the key to success. At every step, I introduce a "wow" factor and innovations to go beyond expectation.
The innate nature of me gave me the quality of finding solutions to any problems. Beyond software engineering, I am surrounded by issues that I fix or situations that I improve. My experiences, motivation, and capability to learn fast are handy to zoom my way into fixing electricity issue, plumbery problem, or other home improvements. It is the same with engineering solutions that need to be mended quickly or when facing a customer's challenging requirement.
I have built a dozen of web applications and web sites with many technologies. From classic ASP, to PHP, to ASP.NET with form or MVC I have embraced many eras where Internet Explorer was king and dethroned by Firefox and now Chrome. I built websites with custom frameworks to the most popular and recent with Angular and React.
I have many Linux VPS around the worlds but moved in the last few years on Azure. Recently I had to touch AWS as well. Not only it's easier, faster but it also encourages better practice to separate systems to be more resilient.
I have been working mostly with Microsoft technologies but have experience on other systems. I am a fast learner, and even under high pressure like at Netflix, I was able to switch from a Windows to Mac environment within a few days. I am also quick to do 180 degrees. Configuring VSTS, or Jenkins or accessing third-party API is not an issue.
Here is the outline of I have experiences and interests. I have work and created software with more than just this list. I built system in VB5, VB6, ASP Classic, ASP.NET Webform, PHP, but do not look forward to doing it again. The following list is the skill that I am interested to continue to improve. As you may notice, my interest is toward web technologies since early 2000's and I want it to stay this way.
