At the core, I'm a generalizing specialist. During my +18 years of experience, I have specialized in different roles, including:


  • Full-Stack Software Engineer.
  • DevOps Engineer, using the major cloud providers.
  • Software Architect.
  • Engineering Manager.
  • Ethical Hacker.


Moreover, I have broad knowledge about areas beyond engineering, like:


  • Leadership and mentoring.
  • Public speaking.
  • Cost management.
  • Several business domains: tourism, health, retail loyalty programs, citizen participation, public administration, etc.


I'm an enthusiastic free software advocate, releasing various libraries and projects. One of them, Mergo (a small library to merge Go structs), is used by 60K repositories only in GitHub, and it's used actively in big projects like Docker and Kubernetes, running my code millions of times around the world at the heart of the cloud.


Also, I'm an activist for civil rights, open source, open access and free culture, an experienced speaker, and an indie hacker.
