Brieve has worked in Iceland for the past 10 years but has no recollection of how he got here. Graduating from the University of the Arts London with a BA in film production in 2006, he has since worked under a number of titles within the software industry. Brieve finds great pleasure in moving things around on a screen, so he decided to stick with video production and playing computer games, it seems to be working for him.

Jean-Francois Proulx
Senior UX Designer

Jean-Francois is part of the user experience (UX) team. He holds a M.Sc.A in Cognitive Ergonomics (Industrial Engineering) from École Polytechnique Montréal. Through his career he has followed many paths, all IT related; from developer to Agile team coach, some project management to UX design. No matter the path, his goal is always to mobilize teams to instill a better user experience into the software they are building. When he’s not designing useful and usable solutions for Tempo’s users, Jean-Francois is probably enjoying a graphic novel and a good craft beer, playing with his dogs or training for cyclocross season.
