Personal Profile

"In the professional world of tomorrow, you have to know two things: You have to know the basics of business, and the basics of coding. Without both, you are taking an enormous risk". Susan Kish.


Pro-active software engineer, always eager to develop competencies within the software development field.

I enjoy working in multicultural teams as much as I enjoy leading my team of software engineers. My previous experience in Colombia and Spain have contributed in shaping further my skills within leadership as well as my cultural sensitivity and empathy abilities. Moreover, I have increased my capacity of quickly adapting to a challenging environment and delivering great outputs under pressure. Among my results, I could refer to the payroll system developed for Nominapp, mentoring more than 30 students for Make It Real, and improving the app experience between the drivers and passengers, while increasing the platform’s scalability and performance by migrating software architecture for Cabify.
