We caught up with Renaud Lavoisier, Marketplace Team Leader in Lengow’s tech team!
My name is Renaud, I am 36 years old and I have been working at Lengow for 3 years now.
If by “little” you mean my early childhood, then let’s say that when the internet showed up in my house along with some great classics including “airplane pilot”, “paleontologist” or even “rock star”, so did a taste for development! I learned by myself on the vintage technologies you’d see in those days like Flash or PHP.
After finishing the baccalaureate, I started working and entered the field of computer science after training at ENI in 2007. Over the years, I was able to gain experience and continue learning development. Coming back to Lengow has really been for me the consecration of these years of experience, the famous “dream job” if I dare to say!
I started as a Python developer in the Marketplace team. I quickly took on responsibilities within the team, notably holding the title of Scrum Master. These days, I manage this great team of 12 people.
Our main mission is to develop the connectors that allow our merchants to join marketplaces like Amazon, eBay, and Cdiscount. We send their catalogs and collect their orders. This is, of course, a key functionality and we make sure that everything is operational on a daily basis, including support to solve certain problems that brands and retailers may encounter.
The team also manages catalog reprocessing, allowing us to extend the data formats accepted as input into Lengow to the maximum.
There are many, but I would emphasize autonomy and a continual desire to learn and progress. A sense of communication and taking a step back are also important. It’s important to keep in touch with other teams in order to understand the stakes of what we do on a daily basis.
