Picture of Rodrigo Aguilera's faceI am a Drupal architect and backend developer from Spain currently living in Madrid currently looking for a full time oportunitty so contact me if you are interested.

I have more than 10 years of experience and I am interested in all the modernizing efforts that are happening around the PHP language such as composer, real browser testing, automation, etc.

I enjoy dealing with new technologies that improve the programming experience such as Docker for virtualizing environments.

I also acquired an interest for development quality process around subjects as code review and agile methodologies.

Qualifications

  • Involved in free software: I attend conferences and collaborate with the community to push Drupal and other free software tools further. Because of this I know many tools and solutions that exist to approach different problems. I also like to include free software in my daily workflow by sharing generic solutions so other individuals can improve them further and as a community we don't have to face the same roadblock twice.
  • Exchange of ideas: I listen and communicate clearly technical issues to people in different roles and different backgrounds on technology.
  • Wide range of web development fields: I can go from the estimation and design of an application to coding it, automate the testing, planing the releases, provision the servers to run it, deploy it, monitor its health, maintain it and diagnose problems in many components such as the database, caching layer or configuration of the server.
  • Remote-ready: I believe that distributed companies are the best way to take advantage of all the talent around the world and I am prepared for by following a certain discipline and some methodologies.
