Profile

I translate KPI's into technically requirements and tasks, detailed enough to be ready to code and abstract enough to be fully described in a business and functional language. With a full background in developing and leading I can successfully teach, coach, guide and sustain a productive team to build.

As an architect my task is make high level design choices, identify the best software infrastructure for the project in hand, identify and design key components interfaces. Since I've started as developer I coach and guide the teams by pair programming and also I can take over difficult and key developments, besides of fully supporting the team in front-end, back-end, middle-ware, and dev-ops.

As a leader I create project guidelines and asure company's vision or product requirements are fully comprehended and followed by teams members. I consider my self the bridge between the most and the least technical members of the team, proving a flow in the communication of business and technical values.

_I also carry the electronic version of the curse of Cassandra. I'm able to see the future of technology and any project, due to my clear vision of the risks and strengths of all software life cycle_
