Recommendations from previous clients

He dived into the payments world without hesitation and built an end to end system. That's how we launched our Alpha!

He was a pleasure to work with - he is resourceful, an excellent communicator, understands how to move fast when needed and when to slow down to get crucial pieces of the system tested thoroughly.

Arnaud worked on building our SaaS offering into a product that RBS, Natwest and Lloyds bank are all using.

Both his practical understanding of development and his clear commercial understanding of business inspired me.

The two combined proved to be a killer combination!

Besides being an excellent designer and programmer, Arnaud is just really pleasant to work with. He was extremely passionate about KA Lite and it showed in his attitude and work.

He is serious, skilled, and very modest and patient in working through software issues.

I would work again with Arnaud any time!
