Jimmy Oliger

Hello, I am Jimmy, a Software Engineer based in France. I help companies to build high-quality digital products that are delightful to use.

Working on something interesting? Reach out to me at [email protected] or @_oliger.


Born in the East of France, I discovered the internet at the end of the 90s, when it was extremely slow and limited to 20 hours per month.

I got interested in building things with computers by chance. One day, I stumbled upon a tutorial on how to design a website. It looked fun, I legally downloaded Photoshop, installed it and followed the instructions. I was happy with what I did but it was an image… So I followed other tutorials until I was able to transform this image into a real website and put it online.

It quickly became my passion. I spent most of my free time in my bedroom sharpening my design and coding skills working on more and more complex projects. I kept doing this until I graduated from university and moved to Paris to find my first full-time job.

Since then, I make a living out of what I love. For the past twelve years, I helped startups such as Hull, Stuart, Kard, Zenly and PhotoRoom to build quality softwares without compromising user experience and product. During those years, I also released side projects, the most notable being Foreignrap.

At the beginning of 2020, I left my full-time job to start my own company where my time is split between freelancing and working on my own projects.
