Maker of the Internet since 1998. PSTN at first and then ADSL and associated services (telephone, TV) for Club Internet, and already well into billing. Since 2010, has been helping to build the Internet products offered by Gandi (domain names, email, hosting) and ensure that they are properly invoiced.

Contributes to the Caliopen project, launched by Laurent Chemla with the support of Gandi, whose mission is to create a unified, open source messaging software that will make it easier for everyone to control the confidentiality of Internet exchanges.

Yann has been a Front end developer at Gandi since September 2009. This UPMC alumni joined the company at the entry level, with a professional Electronics and Communications Technology degree in his pocket. Ten years later, within a team of 12 people, he is in charge of the display, ergonomics, and functionality of Gandi's public sites, as well as the development of the React stack.

Yann is a pure web enthusiast who loves to learn something new every day and who passes on his technical knowledge cheerfully to newcomers.

Claire has been Gandi's Domain Product Manager since November 2018. After having led numerous digital transformation projects in the public sector, she wanted to gain experience in a more technical environment and refocus on product management. Motivated by new challenges, in Gandi she has found a company where she can reconcile her project management skills and the natural draw she has to the product around values that are close to her heart: transparency and goodwill.

Claire has also worked to create the "garden squad", a small team of gardeners who keep Gandi's balconies green!

Alexandre has been Gandi's CTO since January 2018. He supervises the technical teams: back-end and front-end developers, Ops and R&D (50 people). His mission: to organize the work between Squads (teams of developers led by a team of Squad Lead & Product Manager) to enable Gandi to simplify and secure access to the web for everyone!

In particular, Alexandre has implemented the use of agile methods and the empowerment of the Squads: each one defining the mode of operation that suits it best. Demos are set up every 2 weeks to present new products and features to the rest of the company.

Presentation

Gandi is a domain name registrar, a web host, and an email and SSL certificate provider. But above all, Gandi is a French success story built on the trust and word-of-mouth recommendations of our customers.

The story begins in 2000 with only a few pioneers of the free internet. Twenty-plus years later, here we are, a small but mighty international business with more than 150 employees spread over three continents, serving the needs of more than 350,000 active users, including more than 8,000 resellers et 500 key accounts. Gandi manages:

  • 2.5 million domains
  • 720,000 email accounts
  • 55,000 SSL certificates
  • 200,000 hosted website and applications.

First and foremost, Gandi is all about dedication. Gandi's commitment and values, the very ones that make it unique and independent on the market, have stayed intact through the years:

  • A free internet: developing the open source is necessary
  • An ethical internet: protecting the rights and personal date of the internet users is a priority
  • An internet for the common good: providing technical and human support to projects and organizations in order to build a shared and collaborative internet.

Making the internet accessible to everyone is the primary aim of Gandi's undertaking. Gandi provides services to individuals who want to personalize and professionalize their online presence, but also to small businesses, key accounts and institutions, mostly through a dedicated Corporate offer.
