Side in a few words

I am a software engineer with a strong and polyvalent technical background in architecture, APIs, Web Development, IoT and Robotics.
I have extensive experience in the implementation of custom-built solutions and commercial products with a particular focus on integration and API development.
During my 8 years of experience, I have had the the opportunity to effectively contribute to the success of my clients by successfully delivering high stake projects while implementing complex API development and operations development based on technics like continuous integration and continuous deployment.

Technical Architect

June 2020 - Today (2 years and 3 months)

Since joining MuleSoft in 2020, I have a demonstrable track record of providing effective solutions for complex customer needs across a variety of contexts, whilst continuing to deepen & widen my own technical & architectural capabilities.
In fact, my first customer engagement upon joining Mulesoft was a Salesforce Integration project at Qatar Airways. I took the responsibility for setting up Jenkins based CI/CD and automating as much as possible to help increase the developers deliverables quality and optimize their performance. I collaborated with architects from Salesforce, Mulesoft and the customer to ensure the solution met the wider requirements and ease adoption.
The solution enabled Mule applications to be automatically built, published to Nexus and deployed to Cloudhub, using build-once, deploy anywhere principles. I published a dynamic mule template that instantiated a project upon the execution of a script which I shared here along with instructions on how to set up the jenkins CI/CD pipeline

Whereas Qatar is a large scale & scoped theater customer, to support the growth of the French customer base, It is also critical to operate effectively and concurrently across several smaller and immature clients. I demonstrated my adaptability in this regard by delivering successful engagements with Horus Finance, SMCP and Cora.
On these engagements, I took on both the Technical Architect and STC roles to enable our customer both from a technical and philosophical perspective by delivering technical workshops and implementing our best practices in real case scenarios. I was committed to our clients even when they asked us to help them on subjects that were out of our scope. This got me perfect CSAT scores and I was the direct contributor for Mulesoft’s success on these accounts.

Being a fanatic of automation and pure technologist, I led various internal investment projects. I worked on a VW prototype on how to set up Mulesoft in China. Knowing all the restrictions there, we had to find various solutions going from DNS poisoning to bandwidth limitation. I leveraged Terraform to automate the install of Runtime Fabrics on Alibaba cloud with various setups as a workaround for the problems stated above. You can find the repo here.

More importantly, I am leading our EMEA Cloudhub Automation Team (CAT) initiative. I set up the technical landscape and bootstrapped the first versions of the Terraform Anypoint Provider that you can find here.
In fact, the Terraform toolkit is a great addition to Mulesoft portfolio. In addition, the automation tool is saving our client/architect/consultants lots of time and is allowing them to focus on innovation instead of doing repetitive boring tasks.
All those accomplishments have got me the award of EMEA innovator of the year for FY23 which was a great honor and recognition for me.

I am now trusted as the lead Mulesoft Architect on the critical CMA-CGM engagement Hybrid Integration Platform. I have been primarily responsible for setting up Runtime Fabrics on their EKS and setting up different templates (design and implementation) and maven archetypes to optimize our development timing and effectiveness.

IBM - IBM Group


Technical Consultant

Paris, France

February 2015 - May 2020 (5 years and 3 months)

PSA Peugeot Citroën requested a platform of Sales & Marketing of Services (SAMS).
I joined the team during the RFQ to help define the architecture and provide an accurate insight on custom development subjects before I participated in the PoC where I took ownership of the development of custom web applications that fit the client’s specific needs and greatly helped IBM win a 10M€ deal. With big challenges ahead, I continued both leading integration and custom development teams to deliver the platform’s first releases and expand the solution across 5
European countries.
Today the platform is at the center of PSA’s business strategy and is considered the most successful project in PSA’s digital factory.

My next challenge was joining the partnership between IBM and Sixense Digital to develop Vinci’s digital solutions portfolio.
I joined the partnership to reinforce both the architectural team and development workforce by understanding the business, defining solutions and supervising the development team.
I was the leading architect on the prototype project between IBM, Sixense and Bessac (Vinci Group) to deliver the first platform ever connecting Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM) to a hybrid platform for monitoring and analytics purposes.
