Arnaud Kervern, Software Engineer, joined Nuxeo three and a half years ago, working on everything from Java to our mobile app to training clients. An active gamer and avid developer, Arnaud is a lover of all things tech.
What is your background? What did you study in school and where did you work before you joined Nuxeo?
I went to INSIA, a school specializing in software development. After school, I worked at a French consulting company for two years.
What made you want to work for Nuxeo?
I was looking for a software company where I could create software rather than just meeting clients. Thomas Roger worked at Nuxeo and he was a high school friend. He told me Nuxeo was a very good company and it was a great place for developers so he recommended I look into working at Nuxeo.
What do you like most about Nuxeo?
At Nuxeo, we’re seeing an uptick in requests for digital asset management in the context of larger content management applications, so that “digital assets” become in fact “business assets,” which can be a video game, a museum artifact, a gadget for sale on an e-commerce site, or whatever the organization defines as content. The common thread is the necessity to manage business workflows and interactions that are centered on some type of defined content, and often connect to other types content and systems inside and outside the organization.
So, what do we mean by a “platform approach” to digital asset management?
- A “digital asset” models the business concept it represents – more than a simple audio, video, or image file, it can be a complex object, with relationships to other objects and custom metadata.
- The DAM application strategy is mapped to a broader content management strategy, with connections and workflows

Since it’s the start of the new year, we decided to interview Xavier Foucault – the man in charge of keeping Nuxeo’s workings running smoothly as the Vice President of Operations. This behind-the-scenes position is at the center of all Nuxeo activities, and the structured style of an engineer fits this role like a glove.

To develop hardware chips, we needed better software. At that time, the only softwares for designing chips that were on the market were on very large mainframes. I decided to develop a software for PCs to design …
We have a lot of information to share with developers, and we wanted to make it easier for them to see the big picture. So, we created the For Developers page.
This page answers your many questions about Nuxeo, such as “How do I get the source code?” and “What do you use for load testing?” and “How can I contribute back to the Nuxeo community?” It also is a good place to discover how we approach software development, what tools we use, what learning resources we provide, and what external projects we’re involved in. You may come to the conclusion that we are a bunch of geeks. We hope you feel at home.
If you’re new to Nuxeo and a technology junkie, this is a good place to start. If you’re already familiar with Nuxeo, you still may discover something new here. Feel free to share.
