Claudio, Backend Developer for Distillery LATAM


Tell us a bit about your background and position at Distillery

I’m a software engineer with more than 18 years of experience working in different kinds of companies and areas. At Distillery, I’m working as a backend developer using cloud technologies and different programming languages.

What are the biggest strengths that you bring to Distillery?

I can think of two. Experience and flexibility. When I talk about experience, it is related to how we can approach a solution based on my background. About flexibility, I don’t have a problem if I need to switch the technology stack or if we need to change the goals of the project and re-adapt the planification.

What are you learning right now?

To be a father and learn more about technologies (programming languages, cloud, machine learning)

Mac, Windows or Linux?

I work with all three. And I usually try to write code that works independently of the platform.

What do you do to get “unstuck” on a really difficult problem/design/bug?

First try to reproduce the issue, grab a piece of paper to take notes, and analyze the different scenarios that could drive that situation.

How many cups of coffee/tea do you drink throughout a normal day?

I never count it 🙂 I love coffee.

What languages can you speak?

I speak Spanish, English, and a little bit of Portuguese
