My curiosity and my desire to communicate combined with my experience will be useful to your company to simplify your technical challenges and progress on your needs.
My last years were shared between management, planning the future changes, following technologies trends and having practical sessions on day to day. I like communication and being in relation with a couple of teams and departments to deliver my assigned tasks.
I have a lot of empathy, business loyalty combined with a pragmatic mindset which helps me to follow the KISS approach, while maintaining a link with the strategy and the others teams objectives.
