Arnaud founded Saagie in 2013 with the aim of offering companies a simple and secure way to improve their Data & Analytics infrastructure and start their Artificial Intelligence projects.
Arnaud has been working within the world of Data and Analytics for 20 years. He started as an expert in database administration and security working on on highly-available and distributed architectures, memory calculations and massive parallel processing environments such as Oracle RAC, SAP HANA and IBM Netezza.
He then became a project director for large companies, helping them to define and execute analytical data strategies based on their business challenges.
Julien started his career in project management before moving quickly to web development at a startup called Musiwave.
Musiwave was later on acquired by Microsoft. Julien took this opportunity to reinforce his technical expertise. He became a test automation developer and then a software developer.
After 12 years of good and loyal service, he wishes to return to his native region and to join a human-size company.
Saagie seemed a natural fit: a tech startup that offers both an enriching technical environment and a friendly atmosphere.
Ibtissam has an engineering background with a specialization in computer science, but has quickly decided to focus on financial services. After living a few years in New York and a round the world trip, she decided to come back to France.
This is when she meets the Saagie herons and decides to embark on this beautiful human adventure.
What she loves most of all: traveling, discovering the world's cuisines, primitive arts and Japanese culture!
Saagie aims to accelerate the time-to-value of business innovation by making data projects less complex. To do this, they have created a DataOps platform for data engineers, enabling them to bring together the most popular technologies to deliver and run data projects easily, quickly, and reliably.
The people behind the platform are an amazing group of individuals based in Paris, Rouen, and New York, all working towards the same goal: enabling their customers achieve great things with their company’s data.
They’ve been named one of the 120 most promising startups by the French government’s French Tech initiative—and this is just the start of their incredible journey! Their team won’t rest until they’ve found a different way to take every data project from proof of concept (POC) to production.
There are more than 90 of them at Saagie, and each contributes to something unique. But what brings them together is a certain playfulness, kindness, and the knowledge that they’re creating something big together. they like to keep things simple, but without sacrificing creativity. Most of all, customer satisfaction is something that each and every one of them takes a lot of pride in, no matter which team they work in. But that doesn’t mean they take ourselves too seriously: they work hard but always aim to inject a little fun into everything they do.
