What do you love about your job at Instaply?

I like to see people’s reactions when I show them how Instaply works. They’re always surprised by how easy it is to use and how we can help them to improve their customer’s experience.

What was your first job?

My first job was as a Consultant for a system integrator company. I graduated from a French Engineering School, so I am an engineer by training.

What was your worst job?

The  worst job I’ve ever had was when I was a student. I worked on a farm. It was the most physical job I’ve ever had. I would  wake up at 6:00 AM and then spend four hours  in fields collecting fruits and vegetables.  I was also responsible for taking care of the farm animals (cows, pigs, chickens,etc..).  It was so tiring, that I swore to myself I would never do it again.  I have a lot a respect for farmers because I “know their job”.

Where would you live if you could live anywhere in the world?

If I could, I would love to live in Japan. The blend of modern and traditional is something I truly love about the Japanese culture.

Last question –  people would be surprised if they knew what about you?
