Hey I’m Anthony, a full-remote engineer based in South Africa, a technology enthusiast who loves innovation, learning new stuff and well-designed products !

As a solutions architect, I build from the ground, review and upgrade innovative projects for big companies and start-ups helping them design their product with the best technologies for the perfect market fit. As an IoT & Android expert, I make hardware products communicate with mobile apps (BLE, NFC, LoRa…) for B2B or B2C purposes and deep dive in every part of it ! I also mentor people working in tech, so don’t hesitate to message me.

Throughout 7 years of experience in IoT, French Railways, start-ups & digital transformation, I built expertise in the fields of :

  • Cloud architectures
  • Devops
  • Mobile architecture (especially Android)
  • Blockchain
  • Transport Ticketing
  • Microcontrollers and its RF or wired communication protocols.

I have a very pragmatic approach for each project, make data talk, pay attention to every detail and document every decision/risk in order to deliver high quality code on-time.

Your project needs to be launched in 6 months rather than 1 year ? No problem, let’s talk about it !
