Also known as Maca (much easier to pronounce, it’s also my middle name’s nickname). At the age of 5 I got my first computer. It was a real privilege, a gift from and aunt, since my family couldn't afford one. It was one of the first personal computers in my town, so given the context I felt the need of making the most of it. Ever since then, I got interested in customizing websites with HTML, then, in making my own software to make my life easier, however, I didn’t had the tools to do so. When the time to choose a career came, I certainly choose IT.
I went to Universidad del Bío-Bío in Chillán, Chile, and graduate as a Civil Engineer in IT (in the female form of engineer in spanish, yay!). Three months later I found ThoughtWorks, which values were my own. I got hired and went to Pune, India thanks to ThoughtWorks University program and ever since then I’ve learned so much, and haven’t stopped.
My interests as a developer are mainly mobile and augmented reality. I’m still investigating what I want in my career, since XD or UX seem very appealing to me. One of my biggest passions is to fight for climate change, animal rights and gender justice. I’m a person with strong ideals, and I strive to make the best version of myself and give the best to this company and my wonderful coworkers.
My geeky passion is
Playing board games with my friends, playing The Sims, photo editing and Mobile development and design
The thing I love most about my work is
That I work with quality code in a safe environment and that we care about people. Also, that there is a space to propose initiatives and share knowledge
