    Chief Technology Officer (CTO)

    OpenCoast S.L.

    Acting as the CTO I mostly worked as a "one-man-army" at the beginning, switching hats constantly (from DevOps to Frontend developer, to Backend, Architect, etc) conveying from using Java as the main backbone of our technology stack (, Ant, Maven, Hadoop) to a more "modern" Pythonic one (Flask-Django) that is currently being used right now. Scrum Master, QA, release and project manager, while still coding, those are my duties
