You can find here the third Peerus Interview session. Today, you’ll know a little bit more about our development team again : here’s François, the software engineer.
– To begin this interview, could you describe yourself in 3 words ?
– Raclette (Swiss speciality consisting of melted cheese prepared at the table using a special heater or grill, served with potatoes and cold meats), chocolate and kouign-amann (a french desert coming from Bretagne in France)
– What is currently your job here at Peerus ?
– I am software engineer. My role is to analyze the needs of Peerus and to translate it into technical solutions. I have then to develop them in all the tools and interfaces that Peerus offers. That’s my main goal on Peerus.
– And how did you become technical director here in Peerus?
– I like to discover things and pay attention to what’s going on around me from a technical point of view, so I did an engineering school without any specialty. I specialized later, through internships, in computer science and more specifically in web solutions and applications. After 3 years in an agency, I changed my project typology. I wanted to work on a long-term project. Peerus was looking for someone at that same moment. And the project immediately spoke to me and I found it interesting. It has been a year since I joined the team and there are still plenty of projects to develop.
– What are your interests or passions ?
– One of the things that I love to do is discovering new landscapes by motorcycle. I live in Lyon (France) and this city is close to the mountains of Auvergne and the Alps. You can find high mountains and curved routes that are the best ones to go to. Besides that, I like to do some improvements on my bike, understanding how things work. I’m also passionate about technology: I always want to discover new things, especially on my field. And as human needs require a lot of energy during the day, I sometimes cook especially grassy and sweet things…and I love it. But I also cook ratatouille.
– To conclude, do you have a life motto?
– Not especially. But I can say that I try to learn new things every single day. That’s something that really matters to me. I always want to progress in various skills, whether in my personal life or at work.
