Hola! I'm Nicolas Cava and I'm seeking new challenges in Europe as a senior software engineer.

Software engineer for 10 years, I worked on many startups in France and Canada, as well as my own ideas in my spare time.

On a personal aspect, I'm a French father, born in Béziers, with Spanish origins. I consider myself to be someone warm and friendly. I like human contact and to live new social and professional experiences. My job is the top of my passions. Gaming is the first of my hobbies.

My family and I love to travel. After the major part of our life in France and 5 years of adventures in Canada, we now return to Europe to start the new chapter of our lives.

I also act as a mentor for people who are important to me and who want to go above and beyond in the industry. I invest my time as well on Stack Overflow and DelegateCall.

I write on Medium and I react on Twitter. I invest in Open-Source on GitHub. Gamers, you can watch my sessions on Twitch and Youtube.
