As an intern at a bank specializing in trading and investment solutions in Geneva, Lucas was involved in the deployment of a marketing automation system designed to analyze the customer journey. Using techniques such as AB testing, the aim was to optimize the user interface to increase engagement with the site.

This experience consolidated his interest in the banking sector and advanced technical challenges.

“It was a great experience. It’s a bank that puts a lot of emphasis on innovative technological solutions. I gained expertise in managing large-scale projects and working with international teams.”

Comprehensive vision and interdisciplinary collaboration

Working in an agile environment based on the Spotify model, Lucas gained a comprehensive view of the product lifecycle and realized the importance of interdisciplinary collaboration. Inspired by this model, he deepened his skills as a business analyst, joining a product team and working alongside the front, middle and back office teams.
