Most of my educational and professional experience runs around tech and software engineering but I'm obsessed with startups and product design.
Since I was young, I've been one way or another creating products and thinking about their business context. These are some of the products that I've had the pleasure to be involved in over the last few years:
The easiest way to add color gradient to any text
When I first saw vercel's gradient colored headings I instantly fell in love with the style. Now, getting that style on your text really just takes a few lines of css, however, I found myself re-writing those lines a lot, so I created a custom component to apply the color to any text in my project. Once again though, I found myself re-creating that same component across multiple projects, so I thought, why not make it re-usable for all my projects and while are at it, share with the world? And so, I did.
Creating revolutionary slack apps for your team
Having worked within software engineering teams, I realised that there was no good remote friendly way to run retrospective meetings (agile). Moreover, there were not truly useful slack apps to make the whole process neat. It was then when I started Sleam and took on the mission to create slack apps for teams that really made a difference, starting with feedo: re-inventing retrospective meetings.
Creating a better homebuying experience for everyone involved
One of the first Founders Factory backed startups which raised over £5M in their series A, building a next generation blockchain-based customer management system for mortgages. I joined Acre when they were still part of the incubator in their early days as one of their first engineers. I however worked very closely with product and design and got heavily involved in product and engineering processes. This was also a great time of exposure to the London startup world, working around dozens of young startups.
The new way to ask and answer questions at univeristy
During my time working on Jarvin I ran product strategy and design, going from initial idea to hundreds of users at multiple events held at universities in a matter of months. Business development, product strategy, UI/UX design, user feedback gathering, were some of the areas I took care of while creating this small but very impactful project. However, the project has since then been discontinued and it is no longer available.
Discover the best places to work from
In between keynotes at the Web Submmit, my friend @rameerez and I thought that it would be cool to have a place where people could share nice spots to do work from. So we 1. Validated the idea with a google sheets & form (got hundreds of inputs in hours), 2. Adquired deeper feedback through a Telegram group, 3. Built an mvp (react & rails) while streaming the whole thing and getting it to Science and Tech world top five of Twitch.
Bringing ingenuity, simplicity, and humanity to banking
During my time at CapOne I was primarily working as an engineer, however, I was exposed for the first time to how a global corporation of this size did things. Product definition and design, company processes, structure, resources, regulation... I got a real good glimpse into how a company (specially a financial one) of this size works from the inside.
Create your best presentation, as a static webapp with DeckJS
My first Open Source project. Sometimes we want to test an idea, or express a message. Tell something to the world. The way we normally do this kind of thing is through pitch decks, presentations, etc. They allow to give our pitch and see what happens? What if I want to do just that, pitch a deck, to the internet, through a web. I couldn't find a good answer to that online so I created my own.
