Mobile software engineer • July 2016 - June 2018
I worked in a development team in which we created several apps for different clients using native Android and Hybrid technologies (AngularJS, Phonegap, Cordova...). I also created the required web services using PHP Laravel. Some of the apps we have developed are Aparcar (an Android app which allows users to pay their parking fees through their smartphone), Voluntaris (a native Android app for helping volunteers in an international sports event), a CRM for selling ships and boats (hybrid app with AngularJS), an app for taking care of your kids with Beacons, and many more!
CEO and Co-founder • December 2015 - May 2017
MeetPros is a startup whose main product is an educational marketplace in which private lessons are taken through video-conference. My team and I created this project and we were recognized by some international organizations and we were awarded in several times. We developed the business plan with the help of the YUZZ Accelerator under the coverage of Banco Santander. We also counted with the guidance and vision of our advisor Jaume Civit (BI at Wallapop). Sadly, our lack of time at the moment and the market analysis we made, discouraged us to actually develop the needed software (website and app) at that point of our career.
Content creator • January 2010 - Present
Yes, I am/was a Youtuber. Since I was 15 years old I used to upload video content to the Internet and it has helped me in more that is visible at first-sight. I became partner with Machinima, a company which places ads before the start of my videos. This generated me a profit, but the most of my income came of collaborations with tech companies, such as Electronic Arts, Kingston, Elgato, Hauppauge, BQ, etc. These companies sent me their newest products and I made several videos reviewing them. This job made me aware of the power of the Internet at an early age, and it has encouraged me to acquire some valuable abilities that I have nowadays such as social media, SEM, SEO, community management, communication skills, video editing...
