All about me! 

+ years in web development

With over 14 years of experience in the web domain, I have developed a particular proficiency in Symfony, PHP ecosystem, React, React Native (mobile dev), and the Node.js ecosystem. I have been engaged in developing websites and platforms for a diverse range of clients across various sectors.

My career journey at Publicis allowed me to ascend through several roles, culminating in the position of CTO. Initially, I established myself as a lead developer and eventually took charge of a team of 8 developers, overseeing numerous projects. Our custom projects primarily utilized Symfony for the back-end and React or React Native for the front-end.

For the past few years, I've been spearheading the development and management of Beautysané company's development activities. My work spans from the creation of e-commerce sites to the development of processing APIs and the various back-offices used by both internal and external teams. A significant part of this challenge has been overcoming the considerable technical debt to evolve into a stable platform and system that is primed for future expansion and growth.

Currently, operating as a freelancer, I leverage my accumulated experience to provide value to my clients. I am a resourceful problem-solver, committed to implementing the most suitable solutions within the intended ecosystem.

    I served as a Technical Consultant for a Food Tech firm based in Luxembourg and France. One of my primary responsibilities was to overhaul a legacy API in order to create a new e-commerce website, catering to direct sales alongside external sales representatives. This redesign improved data consistency and performance significantly. I was also tasked with enhancing the back-office for managerial staff, in particular to improve the visibility of various statistics, using technologies like ReactJs and Node.js. Additionally, I dedicated myself to monitoring and enhancing the platform's security measures against cyber threats, and ensured smooth performance during traffic surges due to factors like month-end closing or promotional events. Key technologies used in my role included Symfony, React, React Native, Rest, Swagger, JWT, Woocommerce, among others. For more information about my work, please visit: Beautysané / Beautysane BO.
