About Miguel

As an entirely autodidact and perpetually inquisitive software engineer for over 12 years, I have spent the last few as a Software Development Engineer II for Microsoft in Redmond, Washington. During that time I worked on several large, visible and innovative projects while using strict Agile and Extreme Programming methodologies.

Three years ago, I left a promising career ar Microsoft and joined a software consulting Startup in Spain with an uncertain, but promising, future as their CTO. I have been responsible for all vision, development, planning, project management, infrastructure, hiring and support for the entire technical side of the business and can proudly state that we have grown from 1 to 15 employees and reached sales of just under $1 million at the end of our third year! We have inclusively launched our own line of software, featured on prime time tv and in several newspapers.

Projects delivered on time, above expectations and corresponding consistent customer satisfaction with our consulting services, have been a key factor in reaching these milestones in such a short period of time. I believe that hiring the right people, with the right management and clear direction, produces reliable code and thus robust applications as a result, clearly proven with the firm's success.

I am also a dual EU and US citizen, fluent in English, Spanish, Dutch and Italian and reside in both Spain and the USA.
