Hola, I’m Manu 👋
Welcome to my safe place where I share articles with stories and thoughts I have about things that usually happen in the IT world.
I have worked as a developer since 2011, across different types of companies, domains, roles and technologies. And I still enjoy the challenges it brings.
My main focus right now is helping products and solutions get better, from a product and engineering standpoint.
Taking my first steps as PM, contribuiting to establish the product strategy in the medium and long term, identifying opportunities and communicating them with a diverse range of stakeholders. Helping the team to be productive, defining KPIs to measure the impact and success of our products.
Wroked as a Senior Frontend Developer for a cross-platform team that develops a component that is used in different market places across various countries.
I am one of the co-founders of ServiteOnline, a platform we created to help stores to digitalize their order management process. We are currently in the process of increasing our customer base, improving our features, and enhancing the product along the way based on market needs. About my specific role, from a technical perspective, I am responsible for the Web applications, for both User and Admin entry points. And, putting the technical part aside, I work on the product vision and analysis (an area that I currently focusing on, crucial for the development of our platform), plus UI/UX concerns taking usability and innovation as our main driving values.
I worked as a Senior Frontend Developer in one of the main banks in The Netherlands, around 2.5 million customers in the country use Rabobank’s mobile banking services and many more people visit the website. In this project I was part of the core Frontend platform team, helping to deliver the new development ecosystem that is now used across the entire organization (more than 400 developers). In this regard I have been actively involved in the decision-making when selecting, migrating, introducing, and implementing the new monorepo set-up (to enhance collaboration, code reachability, coordinated deployments & versioning amongst others) along with the new upcoming design iterations of the different applications we support.
