Tech Lead at Fairphone


I am a passionate Tech Lead with over 19 years of software engineering experience, trying to make Tech fairer, more diverse and inclusive! In 2012, I co-founded Ninja Squad, which is well-known in France for its core values : code matters, open source support, flat and cooperative management. Our technical books about Angular are DRM-free, sold under a “Pay what you want” mode supporting non-profit organisations like Electronic Frontier Foundation. In September 2018, I moved with my family abroad. I joined Fairphone, in Amsterdam, as the head of IT, focused on building a new IT Landscape. Fairphone is a social enterprise that is building a movement for fairer electronics I like sharing knowledge: - I teach : I had a permanent position in a French engineering School, Mines Saint-Etienne, from 2015 to 2018 where I taught Software Engineering & Agile methodologies and where I led the Learning Innovation Department - I talk about technical or non-technical topics at several IT events (Devoxx France, JFokus, several Meetups, …). - I lead Tech Communities : I'm in the board of Duchess France, a collective which promotes Women in Tech, I led the Lyon Java User Group for 5 years, and I'm the co-fouder of a Tech Conference, MiXiT. I've been awarded Java Champion in 2012, I’m very honoured to be part of this group of passionate Java technology leaders who are community-nominated.
