Experiences in different domains of system development :

  • Project and team management
  • Technical analysis and specifications
  • Hardware development (boards development and hardware integration)
  • Sofware development (ARM platform, others)
  • System integration
  • Support

I had opportunities to work in small french companies but also international and multi-site companies, mostly in pro-audio and mobile telephony industry.
I have started Master degree courses about smartbuilding and eco-conception in the hope of reusing my past experiment in this new domain.
I like to complete a project on time and obtain a good product from customer point of view, being able to say “we’ve done it !”. I don’t focus on specific technical skills, what should be done to achieve the best result has to be done, being technical stuff or not. Sometimes, technical challenges are not the more difficult parts to handle.
Although my position have evolved to integrate management and organization tasks I’m still in contact with technical activities and particularly hardware development.

September 2015  – Now

A system Architect position was opened for a confidential projetc started 1 year ago. My previous experiences in mobile telephony were matching the need. I’ve then be asked to cover this new full time job.

The architect is supporting project manager for technical aspects. He develops technical solutions in relation of marketing offer. He’s the main technical contact for customer (technical Q/A, meeting organization), sub-contractors and suppliers. He’s also in charge to write high level architecture documentation and to validate all low level technical documentation.
Being a project integrated in a large scale global project, documentation aspects / quality / traçability have generated a high amount of workload.
