Disclaimer: The information and opinions shared on this blog are my own and don't keep any relationship with my employer.

I'm a Software Engineer with expertise in Java but I've also written software in Typescript, Javascript, NodeJs, PHP, Python, Perl, Haskell, and now also Golang and Rust.

I had the chance to work with many talented engineers from whom I've learned a lot and who helped me shape the professional I am Today.

Currently, I'm living in Cunit with my wife and 2 dogs, working remotely for Unleash, helping engineers to deliver code fast and safely by using our Open Source Feature Toggles solution.

From June 2019 to August 2022 I've worked for Glovo, where I promoted to staff engineer by helping the engineering teams grow while keeping a good engineering culture, reducing the amount of issues, improving performance and helping them to adhere to best practices.

From November 2017 until April 2019, I worked at Amazon with an amazing group of engineers, delivering a better customer experience for English and Japanese customers buying clothes online: https://www.amazon.co.uk/primewardrobe & https://www.amazon.co.jp/primewardrobe

Previously, I lived in Argentina, where I worked for 5 years at Snoop Consulting, then I joined Despegar.com by 2011 and worked there for almost 6 years, where I helped develop a framework delivering personalized emails to more than 5 million customers weekly.

I've also been a teaching assistant of Functional Programming and of Logic and elements of Artificial Intelligence at the U.N.L.P. from 2007 to 2017.
