Dominique Godefroy, I am an entrepreneur, founder of a startup that develops IOS Applications and also a managing director on Digital strategy for a major international bank at the global business investment services IT division.
My background is in IT with a degree in Information Systems management and certification in CAO/DAO and also Certified as a Risk and Information Systems Control (CRISC) ISACA professional. My work experience covers multiple areas: Infrastructure Technology, Application Development, Information Security and IT Risk Management, Business Operations, Business strategy, Enterprise social network technology and strategy, Technology research, business analytics, UI/UX design, mobile application, UAV… and much more. In brief, I am an entrepreneur and an explorer since childhood, who matured as an optimizer with multiple skills and capability in the corporate world.
As for my iOS App experience, I’m proud that Apple published my first three applications at the inaugural launch of the App Store back in July 2008. Lingolook Apps were #4 , #5 and #6 published in Travel Category – and subsequently featured by Apple in their retail stores worldwide as a demo app. I like to think Steve Jobs must have reviewed and approved those very first apps!
So why have I now built Vizume, an HR-related app on IOS? I have the technical knowledge and the experience to do it, but that doesn’t explain why. I develop ideas and produce them. I am a driven, creative and passionate person about all I do and curious by nature. Innovation is in my DNA. I want to develop solutions that help people and serve a purpose. This drive has increased over the years as I continue to acquire more professional experience and, importantly, the ability to deliver. So, there is the desire, the drive and the platform - thanks to Apple for their technology platform that makes this all possible. I strongly believe that all people have talent but it is becoming harder to discover find it in the age of the internet. So, I’m on a mission to help people improve their professional image and get noticed in today’s competitive job market. My hope is that Vizume will help jobseekers improve their marketability and their job prospects. Plus, it’s just super cool to have a stylish, interactive resume.
