Freelance

Full Stack Developer

I worked (and continue to work) for various customers in different industries / countries. I’m good at dealing with the front side (UI/UX) and know the importance of being able to adapt myself to any given situation / technology. I pride myself in being able to think through complex systems, anticipate problems, and fix them before they happen.

Baby Sitting (Bordeaux, France)

Founder - Full Stack Developer / Marketing / Support

Baby Sitting Bordeaux is an application to create connections between families and babysitters in different cities (Bordeaux, Marseille, Paris, London, Philly).

I used Elixir/Phoenix and Postgresql for the backend. Everything is well tested with ExUnit.

The CSS part is coded with a modular Sass structure and uses csstyle.io (It looks like BEM without the pain). For the javascript section, I used coffeescript coupled with Gothamjs.io (a side project). The whole front-end is compiled by brunch.io (similar to Grunt / Gulp) with an average time of 100ms.

The application is proudly hosted on DigitalOcean and can be deployed with zero-downtime thanks to Dokku.

The whole project (Development / Marketing / Support) is organised with Trello and versioned on Github.

Virtual Safety Inc & Gotham Partners LLC (Baton Rouge, Louisiana)

Remote Employee - Front-End Developer

Front-end developer in a team of four Ruby on Rails developers. We created three full stack ruby SaaS applications and handled everything from design and planning to deployment.

I personally dealt with the schema of the front-end (Coffeescript / Sass) and wrote most of the front-end code. Had to overcome obstacles such as constantly evolving software requirements based on user’s needs while keeping the code base clean and maintainable.

La Petite Box SAS (Bordeaux, France)

Co-Founder - Front-end Developer

Created a monthly delivery box company with two other associates and one graphic artist. I was the front-end developer, I designed the UI/UX for the interface.

I managed the company for 2 months. My responsibilities included:
- Dealing with our partners to get low prices on our orders
- Manage the stock
- Customer delivery logistics
- Preparation of the boxes

Agence Volt (Bordeaux, France)

Co-Founder - Full Stack Developer

Created a code outsourcing company with one other associate. I created the back-end and the front-end for three big web-projects that were made within one year and stayed scalable despite lots of changes to user stories.

Alcool Arcachon (Bordeaux, France)

Co-Founder - Full Stack Developer / Delivery Boy

In my hometown it was legal to sell alcohol late into the night, but most stores did not stay open late. There was a need that no one was servicing. I teamed up with one other associate and created a web based alcohol delivery service.

We leveraged the power of social media in combination with an easy to use web interface that made ordering alcohol online easier than ordering a pizza.

We started with a Minimum Valuable Product and after seeing success we began growing the usability of the ordering platform.

Aside from improving the website, we created an App that customers could use as well to order from their phones.

The company became very profitable very quickly. We however, found it difficult to grow outside of the local area for legal reasons. After overcoming all the technological challenges we started to grow bored with the business and ultimately sold the company for a nice profit.
