About me

Development, Product, UX... Journalism 🤔

I have taken a leap of faith in my career to achieve what I really want. I studied Journalism (UCAB '2010), however I have always been linked to technology. I have been on a data journalism team and taught college-level programming courses for journalists.

But my professional life took a turn when I finished my MBA (IESA '2016). I understood that my skills could be fully concentrated in the technology sector. By then I was already involved in the Venezuelan startup ecosystem. I worked for Fintech, Insurtech, AR and IoT startups (2016 - present), and it was in this process that I assumed the software development as my definitive profesional goal.

During my experiences in startups I was working fully with product teams, from UX-UI designer to Technical Product Manager. Everything under the Scrum methodology. During all those years I have been deeply involved with the development teams being part of them as an automation (Selenium ), scraper (Scrapy - bs4), API and Front-End (Python & JavaScript) developer.

Given all this journey, I consider that my profile is very complete because I not only have the vision of development but of the entire process of the software life cycle. From idea to deployment. However, what I have enjoyed the most is creating products from code and solving problems programmatically. That is why my leap of faith is towards a career path as a Full Stack software developer.
