Professional Bio

Since I was a kid, I have enjoyed playing videogames and working on computers, so when I finished high school, I chose a degree in computer engineering. When you develop something, it's satisfying to see not only how the parts go together, but also to know that many people will use what you built. I've produced solutions for pharmaceutical firms, higher education, and financial institutions. My favorite technology is JavaScript for its flexibility — you can work in the same language on the front end, back end, and mobile. I'm committed, focused, and outgoing, and I enjoy going out with my friends to have a meal and a drink, and watching films and television series.

Employment History

FullStack Labs July 2020 - Present

Senior Software Engineer

At FullStack Labs, I'm responsible for providing robust back-end development for our clients. I'm currently working on:

  • Gases Del Caribe, an app for Colombian natural gas companies to manage work orders. I designed the database to save dynamic forms and their responses, wrote a protocol to validate services with JSON, and implemented dynamic form searching.

Hefesoft January 2011 - July 2020

Co-Founder and Senior Developer

Hefesoft is a software consultancy based in Bogotá, Colombia. As Co-Founder and Senior Developer, I:

  • Built Gestion Line, which manages HR processes like vacation, overtime, and recruitment for a large Colombian bank. I designed and implemented the app's architecture and performed front- and back-end development to ensure the software could handle a high flow of users. It was built with C#, SQL Server, WCF, and XAML.
  • Developed a commercial map that calculates and generates indicators of sales for another Colombian bank. I built functionality to display the reports and indicators in Power Pivot and Power View, and to update them automatically. The map was also built with C# and ASP .NET.
Nova Southeastern University April 2018 - August 2018

Senior Developer

Nova Southeastern University is the largest, private, selective, research university in Florida. As a Senior Developer, I:

  • Helped create the university's central app, which handles all student and teacher information, including schedules, course catalogs, and transcripts. I worked on a team of 10 developers and built a module in React for students to schedule appointments with teachers. The app was also built with C#.
Ecoinfo January 2009 - December 2010

Software Developer

Ecoinfo is a software consultancy based in Bogotá, Colombia. As a Software Developer, I:

  • Built SIAM, which generates a large number of reports in Excel of the schools served by the Colombian state. I designed and implemented the entire app with one other developer and connected Excel with a Windows application to generate the reports. The app was built with Windows Forms, C#, and Excel.
  • Developed an events manager for AstraZeneca, one of the world's largest pharmaceutical companies. I helped develop and maintain the project as a full-stack developer and connected the application with other platforms through web services integration. The software was written in ASP. NET, Visual Basic, and SQL Server.
