The different things that we have to create, there are always something new. Also the fact that we have to maintain conversations with clients and partners is very excited and keeps an excellent environment.

What is the most challenging situation you had faced in your current position ?

Once a deployment went horribly bad. The changes were on production and the servers were on fire. It was a mess! Gratefully, we solved everything, but no one was happy during that day.

The people and the environment. Also the way that the things are doing are one of the best that I had found.

What are your goals for this year?

For this year I only want to don’t have stress. As my previous goal is too short – in words terms- I’m going to tell you some of my long term goals (they don’t have a specific order): I want to start to study about how to be an excellent project manager. Also I want to climb a mountain, improve my english and get married..
