Experiences
  • ► In charge of a multidisciplinary (that's important to me) Team of about 70 persons in charge of the gameplay of a AAA game.
    ► Also in charge of administrating production tools (Jira and other internal tools). One of my last opportunities to code.
  • As part of the management team, my responsibilities varied during the project but my 2 main feats were:
    ► Working on Assassin's Creed Odyssey as production manager of the quest support team (transversal team including programmers, technical directors, and dev-testers).
    ► In charge of the Project Stream version of Assassin's Creed Odyssey, the first game using this technology that became Stadia ☛ https://news.ubisoft.com/article/Ubisoft-and-Google-Partner-for-Project-Stream
  • As a member of the Digital Agency, my mission was to help the regional entities of AXA in their digital projects.
    ► First I was assisting them to define their needs and to isolate the "minimum viable product" that can be built and tested with users quickly.
    ► Secondly, I was leading the transformation of those ideas into products following the Lean and Agile methodologies. As the "product owner", I was the interface between the business (in the entities and in the group) and the development team (in our center of excellence in Barcelona).

    I was particularly in charge of two projects:
    ► a mobile application called "Are you OK?" that looks after seniors and brings peace of mind to their families. Launched in Japan in 2015, the app recently helped families during the Kumamoto earthquake. For more information ☛ https://www.axa.com/en/spotlight/story/innovating-for-the-elderly
    ► another application for Switzerland called "AXA Glass" which is not yet available but here's an article retracing the genesis of the project ☛ https://www.axa.com/en/spotlight/story/start-in-how-to-innovate
  • Our small teamwork as an internal start-up for Bouygues Telecom developing proof of concepts of new products or services for the company. Depending on the project I was either the product owner, the project manager, the developer, the seller, only an advisory or all of that.
    ► During these 4 years, I worked on home automation, machine learning, data analysis, next-gen interfaces, IPTV, indoor geolocation, customer retention...
    ► I also helped in creating the Big Data lab of the company and registered two patents.
  • Studied about the trends influencing rail freight versus road and about the demography of SNCF, the french public rail company, and the impacts over the costs.
