I'm a Software Developer and a tech enthusiast based in Barcelona, Spain. My area of expertise involves building backend services in a distributed, scalable, and resilient way. I've worked in Agile teams developing software for high-concurrency environments.
I've written a set of lists so you can get to know me better without having to read too much, but feel free to email me to schedule a call anytime.
I feel comfortable with:
- Scala (Cats, Play Framework, FS2, http4s) —alternatively, Kotlin or Java
- PHP (Symfony, PSR)
- Functional Programming
- DDD, CQRS & Ports and adapters architecture
- MySQL & Redis
- AWS (DynamoDB, Aurora, EKS, SNS & SQS)
- Unit, integration, and acceptance testing
And I'm up to adopt new technologies such as Rust or Go.
letgo – Backend Developer for 3 years
Part of the Growth squad teaming up with different specialists (Mobile, QA, Design, Product and Management). I was in charge of developing marketing and retention campaigns. Successfully delivered millions of pushes and emails, and helped the company reach the OKRs. The company's userbase was 100M+ by that time.
We ran up to 8 event-driven microservices (Scala, most of them) in a Kubernetes AWS cluster. The high-concurrency environment required a scalable and resilient architecture. We chose CQRS architecture for all our consumers and RESTful APIs.
Stack: Scala, PHP, Play Framework, Cats, Symfony, http4s, FS2, AWS (DynamoDB, Aurora, EKS, SNS & SQS), MySQL, Redis, ElasticSearch, Terraform, Kubernetes, Jenkins, Grafana, New Relic, Kibana, GitHub, Jira, Confluence.
Memondo Network – Fullstack Developer for 3+ years
I was in charge of the development and maintenance of a series of Spanish well-known entertainment websites such as Asco de Vida, Memedeportes, Así va España, Urbanian, or Cribeo. I also worked on the remake of ContaHogar, a personal finance webapp. I had the chance to dig into web development as a whole.
We built a custom PHP framework that allowed us to rapidly launch new websites. Successfully transitioned from classic mid-2000s websites to HTML5 and responsive/adaptive design. We put a lot of emphasis on mastering the HTTP protocol and browsers in order to shorten page load times.
Before that, I worked on smaller companies developing websites and as an IT technician (HelpDesk).
Things that make me happy 👍🏻
- A product that matches my interests
- Companies promoting transparency and open communication
- Policies to protect diversity and foster the integration of under-represented collectives
- Trust-based relationships between colleagues
- Self-accountability, but sharing successes and failures
- Pair programming and in-house technical training
- Clear employee expectations and well-defined responsibilities
- Contributing to community with open source software
Things that make me sad 👎🏻
- A product that is viable just because of tax avoidance, precarious work, or legal gaps
- Massive and shady personal data collecting
- Vertical and inaccessible organizations
- Internal competitions and unresolved disputes
- Having to travel abroad
- Indisputable technical premises
- Companies not sharing their numbers internally
- Using old technology with no reason
As a geek, my main interests float around the tech world:
- Internet of Things
- Smart home automation
- Networking and building computers
- Electronics engineering
- Privacy and security
- Smart mobility
But as a fidget, I'm also curious about:
- Interiors design
- DIY projects of any kind
- Freedom of the press
- Engineering in general
Anyway, do not expect these lists to be up-to-date by tomorrow morning.
