Jean-René started tinkering with electronics and programming at a young age, from a small town in Québec. After spending five years building robots in engineering school, JR joined Ubisoft Montréal where he worked on the video game productions of Myst IV and Assassin's Creed.
Wanting to flee Canadian winters, and having learned english watching The Simpsons, he then moved to Hollywood and worked on ZBrush, a digital sculpting software for movie productions. After two years of Los Angeles traffic jams, he moved up to San Francisco and joined a startup called Scribd as the first employee. There, he created iPaper, the online document viewer used by millions of people every day.
He's the Co-Founder and CTO at Gamify and Gamification (Acquired by Badgeville.com)
These days I'm developing many products at my startup Saltado
