MY BACKGROUND

I was born and raised in what used to be the capital of Spain in the 18th century – Valladolid. When I was 13, I spent three consecutive summers in the United States, learning English and helping a family with their 3 newborns. That aroused my interest in other cultures and made me want to live abroad. I came to Denmark when I was 18 to study my Bachelor’s degree at VIA University College.

WHY I WANTED TO WORK FOR DC

I was fascinated by the young and modern culture - not to mention the complex area of business. I wanted to work in a dynamic company with passionate and dedicated people and DC had everything I was looking for.

Being a software developer in DC makes my days so challenging and fun that I often I enjoy what I do so much that I have to set an alarm to go home on time.

WHAT I DO

I develop, improve and maintain software that helps the business automate their day-to-day work.

MY TYPICAL WORK DAY

For me, a new day means new tasks, so there is not a typical work day and that’s a big plus. Monotony is boring! However, generally, my days are 80% programming, 10% self-study and internal training and 10% meetings, discussing project-related aspects with my team members. When developing software, close contact with my colleagues is required to ensure that we are all on the same page. Otherwise, we would not be able to work efficiently.

THE BEST PART OF MY JOB

The best part of my job is that there are always new things to learn and I can continuously develop myself. It also keeps my brain active while having fun and being creative. In general, being a software developer in DC makes my days challenging and fun in a way that I often enjoy what I do so much that I have to set an alarm to go home on time.
