Nexedi is an open source software provider (ERP system, network management, big data infrastructure). With Amarisoft, we created Rapid.Space, a company that provides services and products around the cloud and 5G.

We also work in digital research projects (defence, cloud, 5G, industrial automation, numérique) funded by France and the European Union. We have several projects to manage, projects that are starting and several submissions in progress. In parallel, we have launched Euclidia with 25 European cloud technology providers. With Euclidia, we are trying to position ourselves against GAFAM and their influence in areas such as Gaia-X, the Health Data Hub, but also on France's "Cloud of Trust" strategy (here is our latest publication calling for a moratorium on national cloud strategies in favor of a pan-european approach).


  • Assist with the submission and management of research projects = follow up of bookables with French and European partners, writing of reports, assistance with project submission;
  • Supporting the administration of Euclidia = creating dossiers, responding to companies interested in joining Euclidia, organising votes, writing and publishing texts;
  • Assist with studies = research and validate data on European cloud providers, conduct interviews, analysis and prepare presentation of results;


  • Learn about the submission and administration of French and European R&D projects;
  • Acquire knowledge on the organisation and structuring of Euclidia;
  • Contribute to ensuring that French and European technology providers are not excluded from public and private markets;


  • Good knowledge of French and English. German is a plus.
  • Good writing skills, experience in communication is a plus;
  • An affinity with cloud, defence, sovereignty is a plus;
  • An affinity with free and open source software is a plus;
