In-charge of technical aspects for Murex

I am currently working at EDF in the Murex Service Center where I am in charge of the technical aspects. My tasks vary widely. I provide level 1 (T1), level 2 (T2) and level 3 (T3) technical support for the Murex application. I also carry out Shell scripts maintenance and performance improvements. I led and oversaw the implementation of the Control-M workload automation as well as the replacement of the Reuters connector. The client consults me regularly concerning technical decisions that need to be made. I often represent the team in meetings and I teach my colleagues various technical subjects.

/ / Why I joined Synechron

Rapid recruitment process

I joined Synechron in July 2008 as I was looking to work in Finance in Luxembourg. One of the main reasons I joined Synechron was the rapid recruitment process and the interest shown in my qualifications during the various interviews. Since then I have not looked back or regretted my choice as I have been entrusted with challenging new duties and responsibilities regularly. This has enabled me to make good progress and develop my competencies each day.

Telecommunications and Embedded Systems

All my university years were spent in Metz and Nancy where I studied telecommunications and embedded systems. After working for a year in business intelligence at a French company specialized in energy and transport, I had the opportunity to join Synechron in Luxembourg. For over five years I worked on preparing testing environments on UNIX, then as a test analyst at a German financial institution. I was able to develop my skills on UNIX in an international environment. Currently, I am back in Paris putting into practice the technical skills that I learnt in Luxembourg and meeting new challenges.

/ / My personal interests

Movies and swimming

My favorite pastimes are going to the movies as well as swimming. I enjoy watching a variety of films and as a viewer what I like most of all is an unexpected story line. As far as swimming is concerned, I began at a very early age and have carried on ever since. One of my other hobbies is traveling around the world to discover different cultures and new landscapes and also to leave the comfort zone of my everyday life.
