Hi, I am Pablo!

I am an ambitious developer, with a craving for learning and improving my skills everyday. Passionate about producing cleaner, maintainable and testable code, resulting in better overall software.

I have specialized on back-end development using Ruby, and lately I’ve been diving into Elixir. In the past I have also worked with C#, Go and JavaScript (this last one for both back-end and front-end).

Polyglot, team-player, proactive, goal-oriented and hard worker are some buzzwords that describe me.

I was born in Buenos Aires 🇦🇷 to a an Argentinian father and a Bolivian mother and at age 3 we moved to Santa Cruz de la Sierra 🇧🇴 where I was raised.

Since I was a teenager I was interested in Computers, so after finishing highschool I decided I wanted to focus my university studies on that.

On 2008 I won a contest 🏆 and got a full paid scholarship to study at the UPSA, 5 years later I graduated from Systems Engineering as the top student of the class 🥇.

Started my professional career just after university, working in Bolivia for big local companies and later on for a US based company as a remote developer.

I always wanted to live and work on Europe, so in 2016 when an opportunity presented itself, I decided to leave my comfort zone, jump over the pond and move to the Netherlands 🇳🇱 where I’m living and working since.

On my free time I like to:

  • 💻 Learn/Experiment with new technologies.
  • 🏋🏽 Workout doing CrossFit & Calisthenics.
  • 🎸 Play the guitar.
  • 🕺🏽 Dance Salsa & Bachata.
  • 🎮 Play video games.
  • 📺 Binge-watch TV-Shows.
  • 🏂 Improve my snowboarding skills.
  • ✈️ Travel.
