Market tech principal

I'm the Market Tech Principal for Spain at ThoughtWorks. I've been a developer and an architect for over 9 years. I have worked with many different technologies and domains, which has helped me lead teams and advise stakeholders in making the right technology decisions. I'm also a speaker and an advocate for diversity and inclusion in the IT industry.

The Interview

With ThoughtWorks, I've visited

UK, Germany, India, US, Ecuador, Brazil and Spain

The thing I'm most proud of from my time here is

In 2012 I had the opportunity to be a coach at TWU, the training program for graduates that TW has. I spent 2 months in India, meeting people from all over the world and sharing my technical expertise and the culture of TW to the grads. It was the hardest project I've been so far but seeing all these grads growing so much in just 6 weeks made it worthwhile! 

The most interesting thing I've learned on the job is

It is OK to say "I don't know". Everyone in TW understand that and are more than willing to help you in your journey

The thing I love most about my work is

The people! Intelligent, helpful and honest TWers, from the member of my first team back in the UK to everyone I'm meeting in Ecuador & USA right now. The thing that amazes me the most is that you can always find someone to have a geeky conversation about the latest on mobile phones or where the best tacos in town are! :P
