Senior Software Developer
Plugged in: July 17, 2017
Sebastien has been doing software development professionally for over 18 years but started coding for fun at the age of 8 and hasn’t looked back. He is curious by nature and likes to know how things work, and that has served him well in his field.
Dedicated, driven and realistic
Hard time leaving issues alone
Sebastien graduated from La Cité Collégiale, and then shortly later moved down to Jacksonville, Florida to start his married and professional life. He’s worked for fortune 500 companies such as CSX, Merrill Lynch, JP Morgan Chase, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, but realized that he likes a work/life balance and prefers a more personal experience with his co-workers. When he’s not working on something for work or tinkering at home, he spends time with his wife and son playing games, visiting new places and trying out new eating places. He loves horror movies, is an avid gamer and reads a lot of books. He’s been known to drive up to 2 hours for a good meal.
