Pierre was Axiom Zen’s first hire. He has not only helped ship dozens of products and reach millions of consumers, but has played a huge role in shaping the ambitious culture and numerous successes of our team. Now, as Head of Platform, Pierre leads the CryptoKitties team, and he also leads Axiom Zen’s product team.

Combining degrees in business and computer science from his native France, Pierre did full-stack engineering at Snowite.fr, later acquired by 7Digital, where he developed and implemented white label music streaming solutions used by Universal Music Group, Virgin Music, Samsung, Peugeot and others. As a full-stack engineer with Axiom Zen, Pierre quickly transitioned into DevOps, followed by security, scalability, and product management, before finally arriving where he is today, leading our CryptoKitties team.

In his free time, Pierre works as Chair of the Technical Committee with PeaceGeeks, a nonprofit organization that builds digital tools to empower communities in the pursuit of peace. He’s been helping them for the past five years, and, with them, has built an app to help collect data on sexual and gender-based violence in South Sudan and Kenya. He’s currently advising them on a web app that connects refugees to the humanitarian services they need most.

As you can probably tell, Pierre is a master at connecting dots, leading the CryptoKitties team from the ground to the stars and ensuring our product strategy (and everything that comes after) is optimized for success. Pierre is exactly the kind of person you want at the helm when you’re exploring unknown territory.
