I was born in Granada, Spain, where I studied the higher-level module Management Information Systems. After finishing that, I studied in E.T.S. Ingenieria Informatica Granada and obtained my degree in Informatics Technical Engineering.

After finishing my studies, I lived in Madrid for a year where I worked as a Front-End Developer at Telefonica I+D, building internal tools using JavaScript, JQuery, HTML and CSS.

Later, I moved to Palma de Mallorca to work as a Back-End Engineer at trivago, where I also had the opportunity to work as an Engineering Lead for two years. Throughout the time there, I had worked on multiple projects using PHP, Symfony, Zend, Python, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Neo4j, Elasticsearch, Docker and Redis.

After almost seven years in Palma de Mallorca, I moved to Amsterdam to continue working with trivago as a Back-End Engineer, building Big Data Pipelines on Amazon Web Services based on AWS Glue (PySpark) and several other technologies such as Lambda, DynamoDB, Step Functions, ECS and many more.

A few months after Covid-19 started, trivago decided to close the Amsterdam office, and I started working at Leaseweb, there I worked as a Back-End Engineer developing APIs and new features in the company's web applications, using PHP, Symfony, Redis, Elasticsearch, MySQL and Docker. Leaseweb it's a very nice company with amazing workmates but after four months I decided to leave Amsterdam and come back to Spain, so I moved to Barcelona where I currently live.

After a year working remotely due to the Covid-19 situation I got used to working in that way, and I wanted to continue working from home. I found the company Savana where I'm currently working developing R+D applications using Python, Flask, FastAPI, PostgreSQL, Clickhouse, Redis, Xapian, Docker, AWS (ECS, Airflow, Lambda).
