šŸ’» Experience

I started my career as a Data Engineer at AFNIC followed by Leboncoin, both in France. During that time, I worked on building data architectures on AWS, and I had the opportunity to work with a large spectrum of tools and technologies. Spark, Kafka, Airflow, and Redshift were the main ones I regularly used.

I then switched to become a Backend Engineer at Adevinta, where I spent a good chunk of my years building services on top of AWS and Kubernetes. I had the chance to perform as a Tech Lead during my last year before sailing off for new adventures! šŸŒŽ

Iā€™m now working at Amazon in Toronto since 2021. A big move, both personally and professionally!

šŸ¦„ Open Source Projects

I have a few projects in my Github. Feel free to take a look or open a discussion on Github:

As you can see, my languages of choice are mainly Kotlin & Rust! šŸ˜„
