Jean Belanger is a multidisciplinary professional which combines strong mathematics skills, from graduate study in physics with 20 years’ experience in the IT. Knowledgeable in a broad range of domain of the high-technology, I have played many of the roles in the software development arena, such as scientific developer, software/system analyst (engineer) and consultant programmer. I have taken numerous software projects from initial conception to deployment, both as a founder of a new startup and as a consultant at a world leader company. Worked on projects by myself as well as with teams of over 20 developers on projects containing over a thousand lines of code.

By industrial physicist I am referring to physicists who work for private companies. These range from the very large, such as Lockheed Martin, GE, and IBM among so many others, down to the one man start-up company. Industrial physicists are distinct from their academic and government counterparts both in their professional activities and in the roles they play in their organizations. In a research institute a physicist is called a physicist. In a company, a physicist will find him/herself being defined by the needs of the corporation, and might bear such titles as engineer, analyst, programmer, or manager, and only sometimes physicist.
