About P-A!

Software engineer, currently living in Québec city, enjoying outdoors, hiking, touring skiing and kitesurfing. I love to make pasta and pizza dough from scratch and try to some other weird fermentations of food.

My resume can be found here


You can find me hitting the waves, the mountains or, on Twitter and GitHub. In the downtimes you can find me cooking, brewing beer, reading and talking about software engineering culture, distributed systems, programming languagues, remote work culture, organizing work, autonomous and distributed teams…

I grew up in Sept-Îles, Qc, entryway to the lower north shore of the Québec province. A place with enough beaches and wind for you to kitesurf for a century, never touching the same sand twice. You’ve been warned though, it’s cold, you’ll need a hard skin or an oddly wired brain to go in there unprepared.

I currently am doing software engineering, infrastructure on a zero-knowledge messaging platform for healthcare named Braver. In the past, I have been a tech lead and engineering manager at 1Password building the identity integration with a small team that would integrate in customers infrastructure. I also was part of Pleo.io from the early days, building a expense management solution, doing fraud detection, infrastructure, from being software engineer, tech lead and engineering manager.

I also was at Coveo where I did a lot of things like software engineering, deploying kubernetes, advocating go, building some java microservices architecture. I did study software engineering at ETS and helped awesome guys build the Chinook, a wind turbine vehicle. Aftwerwards, I worked as a research assistant in computational systems biology. Although, biology is still something I hardly understand.
