Since very early in my life I’ve always had a strong interest for computers.

Back in the 80’s I got my first computer, a ZX Spectrum 48K.

An Intel 8088 was a successor I found quite useful on my last years at Secondary School, and along my years at High School, where I made my way, with honors, to the Faculty of Computer Science at the University of Murcia.

It is this same University where I enjoyed subjects like Computer Architecture, with honors, and where I started my professional career, as Systems Administrator for the ICT department back in 2001. I had a double role there, as part of the main Administrators Team and as Manager of the engineers group supporting the 1000K+ workstations.

Since then, I’ve played different roles, e.g. Network Administrator, being the most developed ones Software Developer/Architect and Researcher, always maintaining a Manager/Main/Lead position in the area/project where I’ve been working on.

Experience has taught me that there are four very important things for facing every challenge I’ve overcome over the years, having a good skills baseline, the ability, motivation and passion for learning new things and very good organizational and interpersonal skills.

Those assets are my Swiss Army Knife in my daily work and life.

Professional Experience

Senior Software Engineer and Systems Architect in Bioinformatics
August 2014 – Present

Senior Software Engineer involved in building Information Systems, backend processes, databases, etc. in different projects as bioinformatician. Using a wide spectrum of technologies over a full stack developer profile, OpenStack, Linux, Systems Administration and optimization, Python, MySQL, SQL, Java, Javascript, PHP, CSS3, HTML5, JQuery, JQuery UI, CakePHP, Apache2, Maven and GIT. SAHMRI is a globally-recognised institute that fosters discovery and harnesses dynamic collaborations to deliver health outcomes and community impact. Its unique international and interdisciplinary environment allowed me to get involved in other areas like Next Generation Sequencing (writing analysis pipelines, from the very sequencing machine, HiSeq from Illumina, to the final results). I also had the opportunity to found and lead several interest groups focused on “hands-on technology” sessions in areas like Software Development, Information and Communication Technologies, System Administration and DevOps, IaaS, Cloud Computing and Big Data. This unique environment gave me the opportunity to collaborate with the ICT department on building the in-house HPC system, based on Debian Linux, and where I put together around a hundred Computational Biology packages (mainly focused on NGS analysis), OpenLDAP, disk quotas and SLURM with accounting functionality and QoS policies for user groups. Managing the HPC system became part of my duties as well, and my next deployment on it is a monitorization system based on Ganglia.
