Yassin recently joined Stanley Robotics as an Operations Officer. He’s going to be in charge of operating our service at the airports of Lyon. We decided to ask him some questions on his arrival.
Let’s start with something simple. Can you introduce yourself to our readers? (Who you are, your trajectory, etc.)
I’m an operations officer, recently graduated. I had my first experience with FM logistic, a national company. Before that I participated in the construction of the new Groupama stadium (or Parc Olympique Lyonnais) of Lyon! It was a wonderful experience, I was able to work with talented construction managers on everything related to logistics operations and materials.
So what do you think of this new stadium?
Compared to the old stadium in Lyon, there’s a real closeness with the players. The infrastructure is very well thought-out which offers a tremendous event rendition. For sporting events or concerts, it’s really well conceived - you can feel your heart pounding. It’s a very enjoyable experience!
Why did you choose Stanley Robotics?
I left my old job to come to Stanley because I wanted to be a part of a company at the forefront of technology. I love the fact that the company optimises parking for airports and simplifies the experience for service users. It’s really a point of pride for me to be able to contribute to the development of this service.
Do you have a hidden talent you can tell us about?
I’ve been playing football from a very young age and I currently play in a regional 2 league!
Can you tell us a little more about your duties at Stanley Robotics?
I’m going to start by supervising the on-site operations, monitoring the robot movements, managing the follow-up and monitoring of operations and carrying out the necessary tests for the correct functioning of the robot. In terms of storage space, the test procedure won’t be the same if the car is placed one way or another, because the ground could be more sunken in one place than another, and during the operating, these constraints occur. We need someone to test everything between reality and theory. I will also be working with Sebastien. His shared knowledge will be very useful to me in the long run. I’m very eager to learn.
Would you be up to coming to Paris to see a match at the “Parc des Princes” with us?
Of course, it would be a great pleasure and even an honour and an opportunity. I’m not going to lie to you, I’m an unconditional Olympique Lyonnais fan. It would be a chance for me to see the big stars!
What is the funniest word in your opinion?
I’d say… “Schtroumpfs” [“Smurfs”]!
Thanks and welcome!
