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!

The TEAM :

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

News :

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!
