I have been working as a software engineer for 8 years. If you ask me why I decided to take this path, the answer is simple: because I wanted to create useful things for people. Knowing that someone is using the product that you helped to develop is an amazing experience. And having in your hands thousands of 🧰 tools to create web applications, games, mobile apps, embedded software, etc. opens a full and unlimited creative path.
Since I finished my Software Engineering university degree I started working in Seville (Spain) at Ayesa AT on a ☕ Java project for the Peruvian General Council of the Judiciary.
I moved after that to 🇷🇺 Russia for two years and worked as a freelance 🐍 Python developer at Semilines Inc. while I was studying Russian Language and a Master Degree at ITMO University. The main programming language that I knew by then was Java, but this opportunity helped me to improve much more my Python skills and I allowed me to get involved into the creation of a 💫 startup product.
When I came back to Spain by the end of 2018, I started working at GMV. I decided to work for this company because they offered me an exciting opportunity to develop software in the 🚀 space industry. Nowadays I’m still working at GMV as a Technical Leader, being involved during the last years in several projects dedicated to Earth Observation, satellites, and Mission Planning.
