Viadeo is 2nd world leading professional social network with 55M+ members worldwide, competing mainly with Linkedin. I've been heading mobile activities at Viadeo, both on strategy, product, technical and marketing aspects. My main mission was to build a dedicated mobile department to roll out new apps and an ambitious mobile products roadmap. And I can say we've built a great great team!
• April 2012: Viadeo raises 24M€, one of the biggest fundraising in french web • Oct 2012: team is built, great new apps have been launched and warmly welcomed by millions of users, mobile ground at Viadeo has been reshaped => time to move to a whole new adventure! • June 2013: Viadeo / Orange partnership is revealed, and is mostly compared to Deezer / Orange partnership. Viadeo mobile strategy pays off, as for Deezer. • June 2014: Viadeo files for IPO - though quite disappointing (Linkedin has raised 150 more money). Viadeo mobile products are its strongest assets.
Deezer is the 2nd world leading music streaming service with 35M+ users, competing mainly with Spotify. I was in charge of building and managing the mobile team, and leading the mobile & tablets products. I was also involved in partnerships, integration with operators and device manufacturers, technical interface with majors/labels...
• June 2008: I join Deezer when there are nearly 15 people there, and it's time to build a strong mobile strategy • Autumn 2009: Launch of Deezer Premium subscription services, with stunning features available in mobile applications: unlimited downloads / offline mode, music on demand over millions of tracks, playlists and albums, search... • Winter 2010: Deezer is awarded 'Best Mobile Music Service' at Global Mobile Awards / Mobile World Congress • Summer 2010: Orange includes Deezer Premium in its ADSL and mobile offers in France • Autumn 2012: Deezer raises 100M€, biggest fundraising ever in french web • Since: Deezer has spread worldwide along with strong carriers partnerships. Mobile & tablets products are truly addictive and used daily by millions of users (40M+ downloads of apps, 5M+ paying subscribers)
Webwag provided a full widgets engine both on mobile and web. Mini-apps like weather, mail, Twitter, FB, Cinema... were available on all mobile phones (including non-smartphones). As Lead mobile developer, I was one of the main builder of the product and mobile clients, including pilot project "Webwag with SFR" which lead SFR to invest in the company.
Technical co-founder of Lemon Mobile, a startup specialized in development of mobile products and technologies: • Mobile games and applications (J2ME / Java phones) • Mobile marketing and advertising platform / ad server for mobile apps and games / special ops (in-app m-couponing, m-loyalty, click2call, ...) • Mobile brand content / white label apps and games / advergaming / in game advertising
Though Lemon Mobile was a very innovative startup, it failed to reach a sustainable market (retrospectively, it was way too early!), and co-founders decided to end this adventure.
Betomorrow was developing its own products and providing services for key players (In Fusio, Gameloft, Alcatel, Orange, ...): • Mobile connected apps development / innovation (J2ME / Java phones) • Mobile games development (C - embedded, J2ME) • Development of tools used in mobile contents production (games/apps) • Mobile multiplayer games development (3G MMO J2ME)
