In my second year at TELECOM Nancy, I had to find an internship as a software developer. Thanks to my work on the orientation social platform, I convince a team of 3 young engineers who build inProgress : their web development startup, to hire me for a 10 week period. Besides, I’ve although negotiated the fact that I’ll be on an entire project with client relationship. Those two aspects were really important to me. So I was in charge of the conception of the new version of Assipe’s SaaS platform : a startup based in Nancy that aims to help companies to create their legal documents about health and safety at work.
As I said it before, Assipe is a startup founded in 2014 by Léo Thomas. It offers 2 services : a customer service and a web platform. For a ~40€ / month, a company could edit its Unique Document : a mandatory summary of all actions and preventions set to prevent human risks asked by the government. On the platform, the company could also manage its jobs and employees. After 2 years, Léo found the business model ineffective and decided to change it.
So I had to build a whole new platform with a bunch of new features. The main difference was the emergence of distributors who could offers to company security equipments and trainings. In summary, companies needs are sold to distributors. With this new business model, Assipe can offer its service for free to companies in exchange of selling their datas to distributors and has now more client because companies can spend less time and less money on this Unique Document.
From a personal point of view, I was glad to be part of a project linking two young companies. I was happy to discover the startup world and it helps me to find out what I really enjoy at work : taking care of projects that I cherish a lot.
