It all started in Chicago, mid-2015. As a product design engineer intern at SRAM (they make high-end bike parts) I worked on the company's big bets and designed the world's first shifting gloves. In less than 3 months, we went from an ambitious idea to fully-fledged prototypes that beat everybody's expectations - and I had found a passion for building innovative products.
Back in France, one of my student projects (Kumpa) won several Design & Innovation prizes and turned into a company. I ended up leading an international and diverse team, closing deals with Europe’s largest media companies, but most importantly, learning how to build great products the hard way (trial and error).
In 2018, Kumpa was acquired by eVeek and I joined Havr to build and lead their design department. Since then, we've introduced a comprehensive Design System, improved our main KPIs by more than 80%, and successfully redesigned our mobile and web apps. I'm now also leading our product management efforts.
I work with startups and corporations, building products that fulfil their vision and ambitions. Here is what they have to say about me, and the impact I had on the company:
"I always associated design with art. Then Maxime opened my eyes, and I rediscovered design: he knows how to bring sense to design, makes considered decisions, and pays particular attention to the end customers’ feelings. It’s a real pleasure to work with him."
Maxime is an outstanding designer, with deep knowledge of mobile UX & UI. By being proactive, he helped us thoroughly on our app design and experience. Working with Maxime was a delight, I highly recommend his services.
Sometimes I build products with software engineering friends, or meet interesting people. Here are the stories behind that.
