2015 - 2019: From intern to General manager in Selectra, Paris (France)

Selectra is a French startup specialised in helping private consumers save on their domestic bills (energy, internet, mobile plan, insurance, bank accounts). Selectra is notably famous for its innovative web applications, some I helped creating.

In 2019, Selectra was active in the following markets: France, Spain, Portugal, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Germany, Austria, Turkey and Japan. Its growth had been awarded by a 303th position in the Financial Times 1000 in 2017 (Europe’s fastest growing companies), and Selectra reached its 1000th employee in 2019.

I held various positions in the company. I first arrived as an intern in 2015, was hired a few months later to work as an internal consultant, softly evolved towards management, and was promoted Selectra France’s general manager in 2018. I was 24 at that time, and the news that a somewhat reknown startup was promoting youngsters made quite some noise.

I was extremely honored to manage a 350 people company (with a turnover of €35 million). I particularly enjoyed hiring new talents and making sure they would fit right in! I was also pretty involved in our tech department, and would like to highlight here some tech-related achievements I’m particularly proud of:

🎓 Education

2019 - Onwards: Launch School (Online)

I’m currently enrolled into Launch School, an online school dedicated to teaching mastery in web programming (no less!)

The program covers the fundamentals of programming in about 1800 hours (far from the “Become a developer in 2 months” bootcamp fallacy). The curriculum focuses on Ruby (back) and JavaScript (front).

2011 - 2017: Sciences Po, Paris (France)

Right after high school, I got into the Paris Institute of Political Studies, or “Sciences Po” for short. I was mostly interested by their prestigious programs in Social sciences, and enrolled into a Bachelor in Economics (2011 - 2014) and into their Master in Economics and Business (2014 - 2017), which I graduated Summa cum laude.

2013 - 2014: Copenhagen Business School, Copenhagen (Denmark)

I had the opportunity to study abroad for a year, and chose to join CBS. Apart from studying (when I didn’t know what else to do), I discovered the Nordic culture, Danish, and kanelsnegle 🍪.
