About me

Hello! My name is Alfredo Medina and I have over 5 years of professional experience in designing, building, and maintaining production-critical applications. I have also worked as a team leader, growing teams from the ground up and creating an environment focused in ownership and openness.

I'm also a big fan of everything open-source, movies, and a huge board game geek.

Leadership roles

Recently I've been in a leadership/management role in an international prop-tech startup in charge of efficiently coordinating the work, and communication of production-critical applications between technical and non-technical teams and departments.

I've been ensuring an environment of openness and strong ownership by successfully leading 1:1 meetings, team meetings, planning sessions, and overall technical assistance; dealing with any kind of problem that could arise within a team, either technical or social/personal. I've also participated in both hiring (with its respective follow up during the first months), and firing processes within the organization.

I truly enjoy building and growing teams and making sure we are aligned with the organization and deliver high quality and high value products to our end users. I'm no stranger to more business-like meetings where topics like budgets, the general company's objectives and vision, and team or department structure are commonly discussed.

Development roles

On the more technical side, I have touched a bit of everything over the years. I've supported and maintained legacy services and applications, worked as a QA engineer making sure the product delivered is of the highest quality, I've been tasked with build new applications from the ground up to meet specific business or client needs, helped design robust architecture and solutions on the cloud, and worked with DevOps teams ensuring system uptime, CI/CD processes and more.

Mostly working in web applications, I feel confident not only building and maintaining said type of solution, but also designing and deploying them in an effective, scalable, cost-efficient, and continuous manner. Working with both the backend and the frontend, web applications are my expertise. And although web apps are my strong suit, I can (and like) to adapt to different and new technologies and solutions.

 

Personal details

I am 27 years old and I work remotely from my home in Mérida, México. I'm a huge board game geek, an NBA fan (OKC!), and I like to imagine myself as a cinema connoisseur. Spanish is my native language but I have no problem whatsoever with English, either written or conversational, at any level.

If you want to talk about movies, video games, board games or just life in general you can contact me as well!
