As the Winter starts, it is time to publish the 4th and last seasonal review of 2017, let’s see how Autumn was like at Blackbird!


No welcome party this last quarter but one farewell drink, for David who left the team for new marketing missions on the customer side.


In October Blackbird has flown the nest to speak about eCommerce on another continent !
Jérémie B. had the opportunity to spend 3 days in Abidjan, with our partner Caldera to meet one of the major company of Ivory Coast : Uniwax.
This new project will start in early 2018 and we will tell you more about it later on this year.

As part of our partnership with the banking group CM-CIC, for which we developed the payment gateway extensions Monetico for Magento 1 and 2, we had the chance to share our knowledge about international eCommerce by giving talks during CIC-events’ workshops.

Another highlight of these last months was the launch of the jewelry brand Gallaud for which we’ve developed the e-shop : www.gallaud-joaillier.com on Magento 2.
We also provided an eMarketing support to the founder of the brand Samantha Zilliox, on how to manage social media and also organized a meet-up with equestrian and lifestyle bloggers during a major equestrian trade show in Lyon.

November also rhymes with Blackfriday : we have supported some of our customers in this inescapable eCommerce event, and also offered some promotions on our own Magento extensions on store.bird.eu.


#workinghard : 1089 Commit on MSCE’s project so far… (custom-built platform for companies and leisure activities providers.)

#superheros : 1000 th ticket on our HELPDESK!

#photosynthesis : our working space is getting green : begonia, papyrus, pilea, and others whose names are unknown... More than 20 plants, just on our side of the openspace, it almost feels like we work for a gardening shop !

#improbable : 2 team members have tried a session of equi-coaching, or how to use exercices with horses to improve self confidence and leadership : definitely something to try!

#36 : you can see Anthony, Benjamin et Jérémie on page 36 of the 36th issue of the local French Magazine ZUT.

#fame : Anthony has been interviewed by the popular blog Cloudways !

#agility : Ceyhun now rides a e-scooter and Anthony an Hoverkart… The next will use a jet-pack ?


In 2017 we got bigger, we have moved-in and blown our 2 candles.
This new year already starts with some really promising and challenging projects that we’re looking forward to showing you soon.

→ In 2018, come and visit us in our new nest, and before that follow us on InstagramTwitter et Facebook! !

Happy New Year and see you in March!
