Interview with Nicolas, our new CTO
Let’s talk about your career path…
My background is primarily in infrastructure. I began my career as a Sysadmin at a Parisian hosting company, where I was in charge of deploying datacenters and maintaining their operating conditions. Then, as CTO at a web development start-up, my goal was to automate the creation of production environments. I then gained entrepreneurial experience by creating a mobile app for automated app building. Then, I joined a Cloud provider as a Solution Architect, working on the industrialization of this private Cloud provider’s delivery methods. I implemented continuous deployment and integration pipelines, and brought new technologies into the workflow, such as Docker. I also co-created the company’s strategic plan, in order to train employees on various aspects of technology and keep their skills up-to-date.
After learning organization, management, and automation in a production context, I joined Artifakt to implement the latest market technology!
How did you learn about Artifakt?
While I was still working at the Cloud provider, a client told me about an emerging tool used to deploy and manage applications in the AWS, and which corresponded exactly to the client’s needs. So I started to think about how to interface with Artifakt as a service provider. Then I met Artifakt team to learn more about Artifakt. And here I am!
What will you bring to Artifakt?
I’m going to bring organization in terms of automated app production at Artifakt. I plan to implement all the latest production methods currently available. My « evangelist » tendencies when it comes to being serverless will allow us to make our services more widely known, and engage our users.
I’m an AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Associate, and I’m currently getting ready to pass AWS Certified Solutions Architect – Professional. I will establish a technology training plan at Artifakt, in order to allow team members to obtain further certifications.
Finally, I will make sure the road map precisely answers the needs of our users.
Can you give us a hint about what is going to happen next?
I can tell you that Artifakt will become a fully serverless, hyper scalable, and hyper resilient application!
