Maxence Poutord

Software Engineer

I'm Maxence, a French Software Engineer with +10 years of experience developing web-based applications. I am a dedicated, hardworking, ambitious person that gets things done, both on my own initiative and within a team. I enjoy challenges and I am not afraid of getting my hands dirty. Because knowledge sharing matters to me, I spend a non-negligible part of my time sharing things through blog posts, mentoring sessions or conferences.
