The job is yours, and you’re ready to start the adventure.
Hi, my name is Daniel. I am a Tech Lead and I joined Societe Generale in 2003.
The Tech Lead has many responsibilities, but I would like to highlight three. The first responsibility is a super power, the ability to turn technology into value. This has become very important these days.
The second responsibility is an ability to coach. They must develop their team and support it in its development. The third responsibility is that they are the guarantor and bearer of the technical solutions that they have co-created with their team.
I joined Societe Generale in 2003 as a senior developer. I already had a bit of experience. I came across quite technical subjects relating to security, PKI, authentication directories.
I wanted to take on more and more technical responsibilities. Around 2008, I wanted to try my hand at project management. This was a period in my life where I wanted to experience something really different. I tried a bit of project management, but very quickly I realised that wasn’t what I wanted to do. I work mainly on web projects, but I am a full stack developer, meaning we make both the front and back ends of our applications.
For the front end, we use technologies that are quite well known such as React. We're bringing in some Vue. For the back end, we use Java, Python and Node. What all these technologies have in common is that they are open source. One of the things I am particularly proud of is having had the opportunity to participate in the Expertise Programme. The Expertise Programme is a forum which really makes it possible to talk to top management and influence the decisions made. Through its Expertise Programme, Societe Generale has truly recognised and valued the work of development. The developer is no longer just someone who makes things, but rather a fully-fledged player in value creation. This is what's really interesting.
If you have ambitions, if you have a different way of looking at things, if you want to innovate, join us.
