2018 - 2019 : Infrastructure and DevOps Engineer - Europe, Rakuten, Paris

Part of a global team located in the US, Europe and Japan, I worked on datacenter related tasks such as taking over existing virtualisation platforms based on VMware and OpenStack. I also took part in opening a new datacenter for Rakuten European subsidiaries and deploying an multi-tenants OpenStack infrastructure. I was aiming to manage them automatically and remotely, as well as providing easy to use infrastructures and tools.

2014 - 2018 : Network & System Engineer, Oxalide, Paris

Within a dedicated team, I worked on storage and virtualization infrastructures, shared services such as monitoring, APT repositories or e-mails, and internal tools made available to production teams. I also worked within a customer team for a few months.

2010 - 2011 : System & Network Administrator (Apprenticeship), Waycom, Suresnes

This experience enabled me to deploy my first web infrastructures in relation to the customer development teams, and to build skills on a large number of technical subjects. I was also asked to suggest improvements and I dealt with incident mitigation, which allowed me to understand the stakes of the production.

2010 : Internship at the Intervention Unit, Orange, Caen

During this end-of-studies internship focused on telecommunications, I was led to install and configure PBX / IPBX, phones and Wi-Fi AP in various companies. I also made interventions on the local loop, and delivered training to end-users.
