Our biggest pride

We are all these humans.

Jean says that an idea and a laptop are enough to change the world ! Graduate in computer science at Laval University, he is chosen to obtain a scholarship in artificial intelligence. Very early, Jean is noticed by a New York firm to work on high frequency trading algorithms. He will then have the chance to work in what is called Fortune 500 companies on many large projects. This is when he will notice the burden on sales teams to produce bids. Inventor at heart and wanting to improve things, he will design algorithms in artificial intelligence to simplify the submission process. Today, being Umaneo's CEO pushes him to give the best of himself and provides him with the opportunity to be in continuous learning. Although he is particularly fond of listening to the needs of customers to provide useful and innovative solutions, Jean can use his visionary side by being responsible for the strategic decisions of the company.
