Testimonials

Nathan has a very rare profile in the tech world because he's an extremely sociable person. He's able to step up the general communication game of his environment as well as creating real social bonds with the team he works with.
But even better, that set of skills does not mean he's short on the tech side. On the opposite, he was one of the most technically-oriented Product Owner we had at Odoo, and was responsible of our technical framework.
All in all, Nathan is a very good fit if you're looking for a team player to reinforce a technical squad as he's able to get the best of developers while listening to what they have to say and understanding what it all means.

― Luc Nailis, Product Owner at Odoo

Nathan is super knowledgeable, intelligent, creative, and fun. With such qualities, let me assure you it is a pleasure to work with him!
As a Product Owner at Odoo, it was incredible how he helped me grasp our products' technical and business aspects in a very uncomplicated fashion.
If I were to build a new product or business, I'd be delighted to do it with Nathan!
