Originally from the North of France (yes, a true “ch’timi”), I am still relatively new to the professional world. I began my studies with a Computer Science DUT (Diplôme Universitaire de Technologie) at the University of Valenciennes, but I stopped after my first year due to boredom. I returned to my former high school; while I enjoyed computer science, I wanted to delve into the scientific universe, so I joined a preparatory class specializing in Engineering Sciences. However, I didn’t give up on computer science; in fact, I became even more passionate about it. After my exams, I was accepted into École des Mines d’Alès for an apprenticeship in computer development, even though it’s located approximately 950 km away from my hometown. Despite the distance, I wasn’t afraid to take the leap and head south to France.
I had the opportunity to do my apprenticeship at Intercontrole, working as an apprentice computer systems engineer, involved in non-destructive testing of primary circuits in nuclear power plants. It’s a highly interdisciplinary field, requiring skills in computer science as well as knowledge in automation, electronics, and mechanics. Although it’s a fascinating area, it eventually deviated from my initial goal. What truly interests me is statistics – the ability to make numbers speak – and for that, one must know how to manipulate and analyze data. When I started discussing with MiddleWay, I realized I needed to make a change and shift my focus towards a data-related career! That’s why when I was offered a position to join the MiddleWay team, I didn’t hesitate. My next destination will be Lyon !
