After a first experience in the defence sector, Etienne joined the world of advertising, where he got a taste for Scala programming and the world of start-ups. Three years later, he decided to quench his thirst for knowledge by diving into the world of finance. This is how he joined Opensee in 2017. Initially a developer, he seized the opportunity to become a Backend Techlead. Today, he thrives in this role halfway between technical and product.

After graduating in computer engineering, this water sports and football enthusiast joined CentraleSupélec to specialise in project management. His first experience was in a consulting firm at BNP Paribas. Since 2019, Hoël has been supporting Opensee customers as a product manager. His motto: to act as a link between customers and development teams to translate their functional needs into product features.

Alexandre has always liked to solve problems by using his creativity. This is why he naturally turned to the engineering profession. After graduating, his taste for adventure led him to move to Rome for a few years, during which he developed the development and data science skills that allowed him to start a new experience at Opensee. A creativity that he uses in his professional and private life, where music and video editing enrich his daily life.

A philosopher at heart, one can say that Shahin likes to understand and discover. After a 4-year thesis on the semantics of functional programming languages with effects, he immersed himself in the use of functional languages in backend development, notably Scala (with the Typelevel ecosystem), Haskell and Elixir. Today, this lover of photos, calligraphy and Mario Kart, accompanies the Opensee teams to find solutions and distributed data processing architectures that will give finance its letters of nobility!

US, Switzerland, Luxembourg… Edouard then decided to settle in the UK for 15 years, working for JPMorgan where he combined his legal and financial background with his keen interest for data, in various functions: Market Risk, valuation, market data contract negotiations, and most recently as Business Manager for the CIB AI & ML department. He moved back to France in late 2020 before joining Opensee to develop the pre-sales function.


Having combined a literary background with a business school diploma, there was no reason to expect that this French art and gastronomy enthusiast exiled in London would join a fintech specialised in risk management. Elena's path crossed that of Opensee when she was looking for new challenges to leverage her past experiences in operational and strategic marketing in a new and exciting sector. Opensee - formerly ICA - was about to rebrand and consolidate its marketing and communication strategy and called on Elena to handle it. Opensee could benefit from Elena's creativity to start this new phase of development with a renewed image, reflecting its dynamism and this new momentum built with its clients.


In 2018, Opensee decided to tackle one of the hardest challenges of financial institutions : make simple, interactive and quick data-driven decisions leveraging their massive amounts of data and financial industry expertise. To deliver a no-compromise solution enabling to exploit huge volumes with speed and high performance at a lower cost than existing benchmarks, Opensee chose to break the status quo: Tear down down silos and challenge existing development processes Co-build a strong partnership with their clients to find together the smartest and most efficient solution. Today this fast-growing international Fintech offers a high performance solution to the major financial institutions in Paris, London and New-York, helping them overcome new risk management challenges by handling and exploiting their massive datasets.

What they are looking for

Opensee is looking for new talents with an innovative and problem-solving mindset : women and men, who see challenges as learning opportunities and want to explore and impact the financial industry, capital markets, new technologies and big data challenges.
