As Grafana Labs continues to grow, we’d like you to get to know the team members who are working on the cool stuff you’re using. Check out the latest of our Friday team profiles.
Name: Agnès Toulet
Grafana Labs Software Engineer Agnès Toulet
Current location/time zone:
I’m in Paris, France (CET).
What do you do at Grafana Labs?
I’m a fullstack developer working on Grafana Enterprise. I joined the team for the company culture and to take a first step in the open source world. I really like to work in an international and highly skilled team.
What open source projects do you contribute to?
Only Grafana for now. I also have some hobby projects on GitHub, like a Unity game I made over a weekend for a Ludum Dare game jam.
What is your GitHub handle?
I’m AgnesToulet on GitHub.
What do you like to do in your free time?
I like to read books, most of them in fantasy and science fiction, and to imagine/write stories in the same genre. I also enjoy drawing and 3D modeling on Blender, and I would love to get better at it. If I’m not doing any of this, I would probably be trapped in a video game, especially RPG (I love the Tomb Raider reboot) and MMORPG (I spent a lot of hours in World of Warcraft). And I love to combine these hobbies with my development skills to work on my own video games.
I also enjoy running (especially in the forest near my apartment) and I love cooking – pastries mostly!
What do you do to get “in the zone” when you work?
I turn on some music (the bands I listen to the most are Imagine Dragons, Owl City and Maroon 5, and I also have all The Greatest Showman songs in my playlist).
What’s your favorite food?
I may be influenced by the season but I would say ice cream. I love to go to ice cream shops that have a lot of flavors and choose the best combination (because I take at least two flavors of course).
What’s the last thing you binge-watched?
It’s been a few months but it was iZombie, and I didn’t want to stop (I’m so happy a new season is out on Netflix France).
What superpowers do you wish you had (or do you have!)?
I would love to teleport myself anywhere in the world at any time. It would be a lot easier to travel and no more time lost in transport (although getting a work-from-home job helps to reduce time spent in transport).
