Hello, I'm Maxence, Data Manager at Ubisoft Paris.

I starded as developer some years ago.

I quickly turned into the video game industrie and made it a goal.

Some years ago, I worked on projects "Beyond: Two Souls" and "The Dark Sorcerer", I focused on specific Sony proprietary technologies, and made tools around them.

Lately, I worked as Data Manager at Arkane Studios on the project "Dishonored 2".

I want to continue in this way, in France, or Japan.

During my last studies, I worked on .NET technologies and VMware cloud and networking infrastructures, at CetSI.

Then, I worked at Quantic Dream, I participated on tests of tools and level editor.

I started unit testing on PlayStation 3 runtime and begin automation of game testing with virtual inputs simulation with some proprietary technologies.

I developed some tools in C# to help QA team and also started learning C++ and prototype some tools designed to work it PlayStation 4 with it.

Lately, I worked as Data Manager at Arkane Studios. Experience that I loved because I think I found the perfect job I want to do.
