    Innovation: Nuance, c’est comme une jeune pousse de 2 milliards de dollars. Il y a une multitude de choses que nous faisons pour la première fois, mais à une échelle gigantesque et avec une machinerie complexe.

    Notre organisation est de type matriciel : c’est difficile, mais très gratifiant de créer des collaborations avec des parties intéressées qui se trouvent à l’autre bout du monde.

    Incidence: il est stupéfiant de réaliser que quelque chose d’aussi simple que des logiciels a le pouvoir non seulement de changer des vies, mais bien de sauver des vies. Et enfin, pour paraphraser une citation non attribuée : il faut avoir un brin de folie pour travailler à Nuance, mais il faudrait être complètement fou pour travailler ailleurs.
