Part of the Banking-Gateway squad, I am currently working on integrating our own bank inside our software (generating virtual cards with limits, handling card transactions). This is a critical project for the company. We are leveraging event outbox pattern and command bus to design our use cases. I am at the same time leading the testability tech crew at Spendesk in order to have better testing practices.

Hacking with Typescript/NodeJS in the Spending Flows squad. I’m working on the ability to request and spending money in our platform. I’m also strongly involved in performance requirements (SQL / Algorithm) on our product.

Sept. 2019 - March 2021 - 1 year 7 months

After having been part of a fast growing company, I wanted to try something new, help Novactive to grow using processes and way of doing from startup to ease the development and understanding of customers needs.

Projects:
- French Cultural Ministry: Acting as Lead developer, I've managed a team of 3 developers to ship an API used for all maps displayed by the ministry. We had to handle multiple sources and provide a way to do crowd sourcing of cultural places. The API is used by wemap and open-agenda our partners for this project. The project is deployed on platform.sh and tested by Travis. API Platform has been chosen for this project.

- Lambert and Associates: Acting as Lead developer, I've led a team of 5 people (1 intern, 2 back-end developer and 1 front-end developer) in order to answer to the customer needs. The project was to build a kind of private social network connecting brands and retailers. The project has been built from scratch using Symfony 5 along with PHP 7.4 and React JS for the front-end in a kind of SPA way. The project has used CQS along with Hexagonal architecture. Deployment is done on Platform.sh and Github Action is used for our Continuous integration platform.

- Melijoe.com: Acting as Sofware engineer I've helped to enforce quality and tests on this project (one of the biggest of the company). The goal of the project was to take into account all the new needs of the customer to rebuild their project from scratch using PHP 7.4 + Symfony and React

- Atlantic: I've help the team to do a migration between 2 majors version of eZ Platform.

What I've done:

- Implements Domain Driven Design tactical patterns on some bounded context to tackle the technical debt, be closer to domain concepts in our stack.
- Monitor performances and improve algorithm to query the data faster -> it has involved to separate reading and writing concern (kinda CQRS but only on the query part for now). Intensive usage of Blackfire.
- Improve performances on Export and Import for the API
- Put in place a Continuous Integration Platform (CircleCI) to replace our good old Jenkins which was not stable with our way of working
