Hola, I am Miguel.

Full-stack developer and software team lead in Shanghai, China.

Engineer

I build and architect client-side web applications.

JavaScript is my best programming language, with 7+ years of experience, and I have created over 6 large projects using JS frameworks. I use HTML 5, SASS+CSS, NodeJS and Git daily. I automate my tests with Jest, Jasmine, Selenium, and Protractor.

I have full-stack expertise as well, other languages I use are Python, Java, and PHP (more than 10 Drupal CMS projects).

Best Practices Advocate

I drive best practices implementation, with Agile and SCRUM, manual (and automated) code reviews, pushing TDD, integration and end-to-end tests. I have a DevOps mindset and always have Continuous Delivery as an objective.

I lead Agile project teams, implement and improve CI/CD pipelines in software projects in which I take part. I also coach and help team members be more effective.

I am a Gitlab user and fanboy, I set up jobs using Jenkins and Gitlab CI, and run quality assurance initiatives.

Tech Lead

I have led teams, I have hired, coached and mentored my team, I have worked with people from many countries, in-person and remotely. I often end up involved in figuring out difficult technical issues as well as handling team and organization-related topics.
