Resume (PDF): https://bit.ly/2J1Ip68

I am known as a solid team player and as a key resource in the projects I have been involved in. With the capacity to grasp the big picture and to notice the tiniest details, I can dive into low level services implementation, create technical architectures and provide concrete insights into strategic orientations. On many occasions, I drastically reduced the instability, complexity, and under-performance of systems under my care, while coaching and mentoring the teams to avoid creating technical debt and improve collaboration, sharing, and agility.

An extensive experience of international and remote work has strengthened my ability to adapt easily to different environments, to handle changing priorities and to manage the unknown. I enter existing projects with ease and can quickly get to the heart of issues and find resourceful solutions. In parallel to a diverse set of engagements, I supported three production systems during 7 years for 30,000 state employees of Oklahoma (USA), incl. migrations, continuous development, operation support and being part of the incident response team.

Some highlights of my career include having a press article written about a telemetry project I led (see entry #9 and https://bit.ly/2jyUqVB), leading a project nominated as Quebec government realization of the year (see #5 and https://bit.ly/3rzv3Xm), sustaining a peak of 700x more visitors than average (2.5M vs 3.5K) the next day after delivering the new Quebec National Assembly website (see #8 and https://bit.ly/3B6YZgC). The projects I worked on have always been delivered within the original budget, on time and with no major issue. To my knowledge, they are also still in production use today.

With over 21 years of experience, I am specialized in cloud and distributed services architecture & implementation. I am also passionate about simplifying development processes and improving collaboration. I am looking for projects with a concrete beneficial impact for the end users. I prefer hands-on and technically challenging roles.
