One of the most important teams here in the Devolutions world is our Web Team. Among many other important tasks, these experts are in charge of maintaining and evolving Devolutions Server. And since the solution keeps getting bigger and better, it only makes sense that the team is also getting bigger and better, right?
And so, please allow me to introduce you to the newest member of our (bigger and better!) Web Team, Maxime Landry. I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Maxime to learn about his experience and role. Here’s a look at our chat:
Can you tell me a bit about your professional background?
What has been your biggest professional achievement so far?
I’m very proud of a content management system that I designed using Angular, Vert.x and OrientDB. I had to create and take care of the back end, as well as the front end. It was a challenging experience, and I learned a lot.
What was it about Devolutions that made you want to work here?
I came across Devolutions during a job search. I was looking for an employer in my area that was a leader in the IT sector. I was very impressed with what I learned about the company, especially from comments made by customers. After sending in my application, I was invited to an interview. After meeting our CEO, David, I immediately knew that I wanted to work here. The philosophy completely fits my personality and career goals.
What would you say are your top three strengths at work?
First, I would say that I learn new things very fast. Second, I enjoy working in a team environment, and my co-workers have told me that I’m fun to work with. Third, I’m very focused on quality, and try to make sure everything I develop is well tested and works properly.
What tasks do you carry out in your job, and what are some of the tools that you use?
I’m part of the Devolutions Web Team, and my principal focus is Devolutions Server. I use Angular TypeScript for the front end and C# for the back end. I also work with Visual Studio 2013 and Webstorm.
What are your impressions of working here?
The environment is impressive and the people are awesome! Everyone treats me as if I’ve been here for years, and I feel like I’m part of the group. I was also amazed at how easy it is to talk with David. His door is always open, and he really tries to keep everyone motivated and energized. I’m glad to be here!
What goals would you like to achieve at Devolutions?
I’d like to create high-end, complete, and top-performance solutions. I also want to develop new multiple skills, always learn from my experiences, and stay in touch with new technologies.
On a personal note, what are some of your hobbies and interests?
I’m a music fanatic! I’ve been playing drums since I was 15, and it’s a big passion of mine.
Please share a few words with our community of IT pros:
Since my first day, I’ve been amazed at how everyone here, no matter what team they are on or what they do, supports each other to achieve a single goal that unites us all: serve our users and make them happy. I’m proud to be part of this philosophy, and promise to do everything I can to give you the best user experience!
