Our Dev team keeps growing! Today, we welcome Clément, Valentin and Rémi: ready to meet them?

Clément

After a 1-year apprenticeship at CGI in Lille, Clément joined our team as a Software Engineer.

Clément, what’s your own practical tip to work better?

Whatever your skills are, staying up-to-date with good practices and work tools is a key to success. Thus, I invest time in my daily routine to go through updates, articles and blogs from my peers.

Our mission is to “Help People Work Better”, what kind of helper are you?

Hearing about someone’s issue, I refrain from providing a quick answer coming to my mind. Listening and paying attention is the only way I can understand the deep and real issue behind, which will lead me to the most effective way to help.

How would you describe UpSlide in one word?

Straightforward.

What is your favourite UpSlide feature?

The Slide Check is my favourite feature. It’s the PowerPoint counterpart of the test suites we use as software engineers. Both are a great help to provide high-quality content or software and avoid the fear of sending mistakes to a customer.

Valentin

After a year in Canada as an IT consultant, Valentin joined our team to help to improve UpSlide’s features and create new ones.

Valentin, what’s your own practical tip to work better?

For me, it’s a matter of rhythm. When I spend too much time on an issue, I prefer to take a break for a few minutes, keeping eyes out of my computer and thinking of something else. There’s no use to stay focused all the time and you may lose more time than if you relax for a little bit. Fresh new ideas come to me that way. Of course, I’m not taking a break every 5 minutes! You need to get the balance right.

Coffee is also one of my best allies!

Our mission is to “Help People Work Better”, what kind of helper are you?

Pragmatic. Each time I face a problem, I try to quickly find an easy way to resolve it. My solution won’t be necessarily the most efficient and clean, but I always try to provide leads in order to find the best one.

How would you describe UpSlide in one word?

User-friendly.

What is your favourite UpSlide feature?

The Slide Check, for sure. I wish I had that feature during my student life… Many presentations for school would certainly have been better and I wouldn’t have spent so much time fixing my slides!

Rémi

After 7 years working for an IT lab, Rémi joined UpSlide to structure our web squad!

Rémi, what’s your own practical tip to work better?

Never stop learning new things and keep training and improving myself.

Our mission is to “Help People Work Better”, what kind of helper are you?

The kind to go directly to the pain point and then propose multiple solutions and ways to cooperate to solve it.

How would you describe UpSlide in one word?

Autonomy.

What is your favourite UpSlide feature?

Definitely the Library!
