I am a passionate technology leader. I’m a fan of Lean, Extreme Programming, Domain-Driven Design, and DevOps mindsets with over 20 years of development experience and over 15 years of experience in leading technology teams.
I have held various leadership roles such as Tech Lead, VP of Engineering, CTO, and even CEO. I have mentored product and engineering teams of up to 150 members across different industries (e-commerce, e-learning, payment processing, classifieds, recruiting marketplace, supply chain, and shared mobility), across multiple distributed locations, and across multiple sizes of companies (Start-ups, Incorporated Companies and Multinational Companies).
As a consultant in my own company, Rigor Guild, I have contributed to the success of new companies and established brands. Some examples are Atrápalo, PCComponentes, Emagister, eBay, PlanetaHuerto, Lowpost, Vendo, Riplife, Omatech, Techpump, and many more.
I am also the author of the book “Domain-Driven Design in PHP” and “CQRS By Example”. I am also a speaker, and since 2016, I have had a video blog on development best practices called Rigor Talks. I also organized the PHP Barcelona Conference and the DevOps Barcelona Conference.
My main areas of expertise are agile team management (Scrum and Kanban), development best practices (extreme programming, domain-based design, and microservices architectures), and digital transformation (agile, XP, and DevOps).
I am certified as a ScrumMaster (CSM) by Scrum Alliance. I have other PHP certifications, such as Zend PHP Engineer and Zend Framework Engineer. I am also an AWS Architect Associate Certified and MySQL Certified as well.
