I’ll be leaving CodinGame at the beginning of August, after more than 6 years as the first and only community manager here (I joined CG just before Smash the Code). This was a new challenge for me after having been a Java developer for 5 years at Amadeus.
What an honor! Such a vibrant community with passionate people. I’d have liked to know and meet more of you.
So much has happened in 6 years. So many extraordinary coding events and great memories.
From the Accountant event with Warner Bros, to Code4Life with Roche, to the community contests, to Unleash the Geek with Amadeus to the Spring & Fall challenges, and more recently Green Circle with Societe Generale…
I know that, for many of you, CodinGame is just a platform of coding puzzles and games, but trust me, it’s much much more.
During these 6 years, as a startup, we’ve tested many things: sponsored contests, Tech.io, Coding Escape, the sourcing feature… Our small 20-person startup has became profitable, and last year, merged with CoderPad. Today, counting CoderPad, it employs around one hundred great people, who serve thousands of customers worldwide.
I also know that, some decisions have been difficult to hear regarding the growth of the community platform, with less and less focus. Be sure that I’ve always been your biggest ally on these. I’ve cared about the platform and I’ve cared about the people.
I’m leaving but the community lives on, with another hire to replace me and prepare the future of the CG community.
CodinGame wants to keep investing to build exclusive tech content and help millions of developers to improve their skill. If you are interested in owning the CodinGame platform and its product strategy, you can apply here: CodinGame.com Senior Product Manager job position
Meanwhile, Loick (CodinGame CEO) will be your main point of contact.
Also, stay tuned for our next tech online conferences and videos, organized by Mathis. (Next one is on July 29)
Thank you to all people who have helped to improve the platform and to make the community a great place: moderators, contributors, helpers, and friendly players
