WINAMAX

After graduating from business school, Dorian entered the job market in a suit and tie. He was a business engineer and managed to sell IT services without understanding what he was talking about. Frustrated by his technical incompetence, he decided to train in programming and became an IT project manager at LIDL.

At that point, he was missing only one thing for total fulfilment: colleagues capable of having an opinion on the backhand slice of the 167th player in the ATP. He therefore decided to leave his native Alsace to join Winamax and a sector of activity he is passionate about, sports betting. He is now in charge of liaising between the betting manager and the developers in order to make the application evolve as he would have liked as a user. His favourite player: Mickaël Pagis

After completing his master's degree in Systems Administration at ENI Rennes in 2015, Matthieu began his career at Atos (Rennes) and Bluekiwi Software (Paris), where he evolved and maintained the infrastructure of an Enterprise social network platform for 1 year. His curious, motivated, and "fast learner" side having attracted attention, he joined Linkfluence in 2016 and discovered the world of Big Data, the requirements of the data capture and processing/storage business.

After 4 years spent managing a hybrid and multi-cloud/provider infrastructure, and where he will emerge more than ever grown and experienced, he joins the Winamax adventure in 2020, looking for new challenges. He has been playing table tennis for over 20 years, and has been playing in the National/Regional level for many years. Matthieu is a driving force when it comes to bringing people together around a common cause, whether it's work or sporting competition.

As a graduate of an engineering degree from EPITA, specializing in GISTRE (Computer Engineering and Real-time and Embedded systems), Guillaume joined Winamax for his final internship as part of his degree. For 3 years, he has been contributing to Back End development for the company. He is our young mad scientist of Winamax Back End poker thanks to his experience in system performance and his passion for technology watch. He is currently responsible for the stability, innovation and evolution of the poker game platform.

Antoine joined Winamax in 2017 as a Poker Journalist in the Communication department. He writes daily articles on poker news and covers the company's international events. He is also the main poker host on Winamax’s online TV and presents several weekly programs. With a professional Masters degree from the Sorbonne, his passion for poker naturally led him to Winamax, the French leader in its sector, and the driving force behind online gaming innovation.

Catherine has been contributing to the development of the Winamax staff since the launch of the .fr platform in 2010. Initially a recruiter, she is now HR manager.

Catherine's previous experience has enabled her to evolve in the video game sector and in management consulting, after studying in the field of computer science and information systems management, in particular via a specialised master's degree from HEC-Ecole des Mines.
