Hello, I’m Adrián.
Director of Engineering & Tribe Lead

I work at SumUp, a digital payments company focused in small businesses. My background is diverse (you could say I'm a specialized generalist), but always close to digital technology.
I have done a bit of everything, from backend development to mobile apps, devops or team leading and coaching. I love automation as a way to optimize processes and avoid repetitive work, and working in happy agile teams - where work is a way to solve problems, and not a mean by itself.

Who am I?

I’m a very easy going, sociable, fast-learner, curious and natural leader. I do what I love, and I love what I do. I lead by example and work side by side with my teams.

My profile is a hybrid of technical and managerial experience, but always related to technological projects. I bring business and product vision to tech teams, partly thanks to having started an developed a company. I am a fast learner, curious to see how technology can improve the users experience in multiple areas. I have a strong motivation and sense of responsibility with myself, my team and clients (or peers), and people like my positive and easy going, can-do attitude.

On the technical side, I’m a specialized generalist, always working between different areas, such as mobile and web development, devops, team leading... This has involved a variety of languages and frameworks in the web-side, both in the backend and in the client side.
