How my professional beginnings seem far away now! (Still, I’m not the oldest in the team!). A beautiful autumn day in 2006, the air is crisp, a few rays of sun pierce gray skies and I’ve just become another number in a big IT service company.
My career then followed a somewhat classic curve, development engineer, small projects, big projects, all-nighters then project manager… All things considered after all, no, I don’t want to be project manager; I’d rather be an architect. Luckily, a guru named David disrupted this rather mundane story. Besides the technical aspects of his trade, what convinced me to follow him in his Parisian adventure and his shiny new ambitious structure were the man’s human qualities!
But time has not yet come for MiddleWay and I’m not living the Parisian nightlife. Our common project won’t be based in Paris; it will firstly be born in Lyon and be called MiddleWay.
Dialogues, exchanges and analyses, which lead us to understand our clients’ businesses, mostly mark my day-to-day work life. Immerging ourselves in the business culture of our customers and identifying their functional complexities enable us to pinpoint the information necessary to set up data flows inside or outside of their companies.
Depending on the nature of the streams we have to implement, our missions as architects and advisers consist in recommending the best technical solution while maintaining the flow’s modularity, its scalability and its performance.
Finally, I supervise and take part in the execution, testing, packaging and rollout phases, which allows me to be close to any issue encountered during implementation and to maintain technical legitimacy.
A professional environment that fulfills us on a personal level. Here we work hard, we tear our hair out and we grumble, but the atmosphere and global solidarity enable us to do a job none of us could have imagined carrying out.
Good mood is transmitted to the souls of those who approach it.
