Jean-Sébastien Bettez co-founded 8D technologies and serves today as the Chief Technology Officer of Motivate. Before launching his own company, he spent several years working in the computer and software industry. Immersed in the world of computers from an early age, Jean-Sébastien has been involved in the computer and software industry for over 20 years, doing so with competence, effectiveness, determination, leadership and passion. Under his leadership, the technical teams at 8D Technologies have conceived, developed and deployed world-class solutions around the globe.
A graduate of computer management and software development at the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM), he began the 8D Technologies adventure in 1996. From 1996 to 2000, the company offered professional software and hardware services. Under his leadership, 8D obtained contracts with several well-renowned provincial, national and international enterprises, such as Goodyear, Nautilus Plus, the École Polytechnique de Montréal and the Mouvement des caisses Desjardins. His experience as a Unix and TCP/IP teacher and lecturer have given him the skills required to convey his passion to his employees, and to create a work environment based on cooperation, mutual aid and the development of skills and competencies.
It was after he and his sister decided to unite forces and launch a product and solution enterprise that Jean-Sébastien, as Chief Technology Officer of 8D, Project Manager, Software Architect and Developer, became responsible for the development and architecture of the first 8D technology platform.
Today, as CTO of Motivate, he oversees technology development across all of Motivate, and keeps the company forward-moving in a rapidly evolving technology environment.
