Samuel Durand

Senior Consultant

For the love of endless struggle

You know, there are people who like everything smooth and easy. It’s hardly surprising then that none of them work in IT. We love problems. But Samuel is a totally different caliber. He dives with joy and abandon into the endless struggle. As if full-stack development weren’t enough of a challenge, he likes bouldering, baking and cooking and simply, the sheer number of things one can learn and master.

Cooking sounds nice, you say? Well, Samuel is French, which often (and this is empiric and not cliché) seems to come with a certain standard regarding food preparation. He loves to explore (endless) new recipes and to get honest opinions about them.

And he’s even more hardcore when on holiday. Once he hitchhiked throughout Japan for a month without even speaking the language. Without internet! Next up is visiting Iceland and seeing the Aurora borealis. We pretty much assume he will walk there.
