Laura_computer engineer_Camaloon

introduce yourself in two lines and 3 adjectives

My name is Laura and I am from Oviedo (Asturias). I just arrived in Barcelona so this is a new start for me.

I am a computer engineer. Yeah, I know what you are thinking, I am part of the small percentage of women from this sector; but I just love it! I especially enjoy the web development.

Nowadays, everyone uses Internet for almost anything, so I feel lucky to have the required knowledge to create all those useful tools.

I am a happy and a positive person. I am also hard-working. I think everything can be achieved if you fight enough for it with the right attitude.

What did you like @Camaloon?

Right after discovering Camaloon, I started to love its history and beginnings: A traditional business which found its way by adapting and evolving over the years hand-to-hand with the growth of technology.

It means they know how to do things in the right way.

I like the diversity of people in the team. There are people from different countries, a melting pot of knowledge and different education backgrounds. I am sure this is going to be a very enriching experience.

Furthermore, focusing on my tasks, it is just perfect that we are working with the latest technologies and the company is really open-minded towards innovation.

Your impressions on your first day...

When I got home after my first day I was tired, but most of all, I was really satisfied. I am sure I’ve made the right decision. I know I am going to learn a lot of new things and I am very excited about it.

What I like the most was the multicultural environment. I can't remember how many different nationalities there are. However, the active communication and the good mood are always around.

I also like the design of the office with open space and big windows. I think it is very important to feel comfortable at the office because we spend a lot of hours there.

What will be your job in Camaloon?

I am part of the development team of Camaloon. I have just started, but in a short time I will be developing new features in the website to make our customers happy.

In our team, we also develop the tool to manage the orders and the production process in order to have everything under control.

Tell us something about yourself – We love to gossip!

Every day I discover something in Barcelona that I love.

Some days ago, walking on the beach, I realized how many people were rollerskating. When

I was a child, I used to rollerskate until I had a little accident...that ended up in the hospital...

Anyway, that was long ago, so... I decided it was about time skate up again!! The Barcelona’s beach walk is just perfect for it! I enjoy it a lot, and I hope this will be the start of a new hobby that will last for long.
