Pierre LEMÉE // Developer
Male // 31 // French
To me, software development is like a construction game: by assembling blocks of different sizes, colors and shapes and an endless imagination you can turn any idea to a living, solid and palpable realization. Making any outline to a realistic project.
This is who I am then: a 31-years old passionated developer / playful kid. I'm constantly investigating on how buildings / softwares / frameworks are made, curious about how the things truly work. I love to be a builder, stacking line of codes, setting up algorithms, structuring objects and designing the map of my projects. I'm a Web, Linux and Open Source lover, I know how to design, code, test, deploy, query and automatize. I'm a software builder.

I'm currently the CTO of SensCritique, which is a website offering members to rate or review films, TV shows, video games, books or even music albums, share suggestions among the community and create editorial content.
My mission aims at organizing the development team, by:
- setting up an Agile methodology with Scrum
- scheduling tasks and prioritizing projects, in interaction with market and product owners

Developer // BlaBlaCar
Paris // july 2014 - august 2016
I had the chance to join the Blablacar's tech team, the world's biggest ridesharing community. I spent half of my time as a web developer, maintaining and improving web and mobile websites in PHP, using Symfony 2 and Doctrine for MySQL. I participated in writing functional testing scenarios with Behat to perform Selenium based test processes.
But I mainly contributed to the BI / data team, creating an event data collection flow to track event actions, aiming at better understanding how members interact with the product. I achieved this by:
- creating a backend-side data collection flow: from PHP publication to Rabbit MQ, data enrichment from prod MySQL database in a dedicated worker, and storage to Hadoop with HDFS
- batch scripts with Pig-Latin and Spark to unserialize data and synchronize it with HPE Vertica, the columnar database used for analytical queries
- map Hive and Impala on HDFS for high volume slow queries
