Meet our wonderful team
We know what you are thinking … ABOUT TIME! So, here it is! We are so happy to present you the actual team members of Urban Turtle.
CAUTION: We are a little weird sometimes, but we are so adorable at the same time. See for yourselves.
Front – From left to right
Jonathan Gagné: Jo or John is the same guy, depending if I speak to French or English people (never Jonathan, it’s too long). I’m head of marketing and communication for Urban since 2013. And if you’re looking for me outside the office, go check in a good wine bar, a nice restaurant or directly in a kitchen!
Laurence Jobin: Big L. or Jobin (for some people), I’m the communications and marketing coordinator for Urban Turtle. I joined the team in 2014. Shoes are my life, and nail polish too. Now, you know me better.
Françoise Rizzi: Since the dawn of emails, I have been tagged; Frizzi (frizzy). Need I explain? &;) On good hair days, I’m bouncy and I “go with the flow”. But when it gets stormy, like my hair, I can become unruly. Regardless of how it falls, I always feel privileged and I am grateful to serve and protect the team as Scrum Master since 2015.
Audrée Lafontaine: People say that I have a great energy and that my name is Audrée. I’ve been a developer in Urban Turtle since 2015. “In my world everyone is a pony, and they all eat rainbows, and poop butterflies.” ― Hortons Hears a Who!
Back – From left to right:
Luc Dorval: I’m Luc and I created Urban Turtle back in 2008 with my bare hands and my evil mind only. Creating Urban Turtle was the first step of my Grand Plan to take over the world!
Vincent Cléroux: They gave me the Product Owner title because full time multi tasking Ninja is not an actual job. “To choose doubt as a philosophy of life is akin to choosing immobility as a means of transportation.” ― Yann Martel, Life of Pi
Yvon Frongillo: I studied physics in a previous life and it made me believe in the butterfly effect. Note that this has nothing to do with poneys.
David Savard: I’m doing development in Urban Turtle since 2015. Between butterfly hunting and whistling christmas carols, I like to talk about my socks and debate on the existence of Nessie.
Missing in the picture
Jean-François Thériault: I’m Jean-François or J-F for my friends or Tiger for my love (grrrrrrrrr) and I’m a developer in Urban Turtle. The quote that best describes myself is “People who enjoy meetings should not be in charge of anything”. So come on, just release good stuff!
The release of the official Team page will be coming soon on our website. Stay tuned!
