Amilia app is awesome, everyone knows that. But why is it THAT awesome? We have the best developers in the industry! One of them is Allan. He joined the team 1 year ago. Get to know him better! Here are 10 questions we asked him:

Explain your job at Amilia 

I'm a web developer. Boo! I’m here to move the product forward and add my touch to Amilia: Because apart from fixing problems or creating new ones, I am also involved in the development of new features that make the product even cooler than it was.

You're welcome. My pleasure.

If you were an animal, which one would you be?

I hesitated a long time between the lobster and the cat! But even with his long-life expectancy aAllan_circle.pngnd his fidelity ... my love for the taste of the crustacean caused me problems of conscience ... I chose the symbol of “I don’t care”: Purr Purr!

Choose: cat or dog ?

To have: A dog. To be: A cat

What is the app you use the most?

Google Maps: 100%. I mean, have access to offline maps? A life changer when you want to travel abroad! But honestly, y’know, what would I do in the subway, without my super application lightsaber?

What’s your favorite thing about working at Amilia?

The coffee or the table football, I do not know yet.

Or. Or. Or.

The work environment: relaxed but efficient. But also, the autonomy and trust that we are given. We can propose, experiment and try new things at all times. Nothing of the kind to promote professional and personal development. Besides that, I'm lucky to have “sua coche” co-workers. And that too, in my opinion there is nothing more important than the team we integrate.

What is your dream travel destination?

Honestly the destination, I do not care. But rather those who accompany me. But I have to choose what, so I go. The moon. The only time I'm there, I do not do it on purpose. So, I’d really like having a ticket for the moon.

Three words that define you:

Creative, Ambitious, Generous

Nutella or peanut butter?

Honestly? I mix the two. The taste is strangely similar to M & M's.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?

I stopped the ice cream. In fact, I’m trying to stop: it looks like I eat too fast, which gives me brain-freeze, every time! But otherwise, Cookie/ Brownie for the win!

Do you enjoy the Montreal winters?

Apparently, according to dubious sources, I will say 'du coup' a little too often. But since I am French, it doesn’t count. Otherwise, I really like using Caliss de Tabarn ***.
