What’s your favorite part of your job?
The people! Since I started here back in September 2021, I have met so many talented people from whom I learn a lot - a LOT. About work, about processes, handling situations, everything.
When you aren’t working, what are you usually doing?
I like to study. I'm currently studying law at the University of Buenos Aires. I love to play football also. I know you call it soccer, but I love to play football. I also love yoga and meditation.
Tell us about your pets?
I have 2 dogs. They don't live with me, they live outside the city with my parents. One is called Bongo, he's a wild boxer, and the other is Marcus.
Do you have any secret talents?
One of my secret talents is writing short stories! I like to write. It depends on my mood (for what kind of stories) but I like true stories about normal situations. And I describe the situation, describe what's going on, what are the characters feeling, etc.
Do you have a favorite quote from a movie?
Al Pacino to Keanu Reeves in the movie The Devil's Advocate: Don't ever let them see you coming.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
Tiff Beuesss gave me amazing advice when I first started, "When you receive a new task or something new to do, make sure to from the beginning, have metrics to understand the complete workflow for the task."
For all the processes here, we move fast and we have new processes and new ways to implement things month-to-month or day to day. It's important to have the mindset to just go, test the task, take metrics, understand what's going on, and then it'll succeed.
If you could have a Fluid Truck full of one thing, what would it be?
A Promaster full of spare tires! Because I work with spare tires a lot. It would solve a lot of problems.
What motivates you at work?
A lot of things. I would say, first, working with the team. Day by day. I work with everyone and learn from everyone. We have a lot of daily meetings and brainstorming here. Every day we start with a 5 minute meeting where we talk about what's going on. It's an amazing thing. We are so encouraged to think.
I'm always encouraging people to bring things to the meeting. Let's discuss it. Be prepared to discuss. And that's something that motivates me every day. Each person on the team is like that. Thinking, growing. Also we try to work together shoulder to shoulder. And that's an absolute pleasure!
If you had a TED Talk, what would it be about?
I like to listen to music. So I think if I had the opportunity to give a TED Talk, the first one ould be about the history of rock music. And I would give a special moment for the Doors, for sure.
What’s the worst job you’ve ever had?
When I was 24, I traveled to New Zealand to a farm to work. I was thinking, "I'll have the full experience of New Zealand!" In the end, I just went there to clean the house. I didn't work with the kiwis or the apples or the cows. Just cleaned the house. It wasn't a bad experience, but I was expecting to do the typical New Zealand farm stuff. In the end, I stayed there for a week and then I left.
Do you have a guilty pleasure?
Having a big burger late on Friday after work. On Fridays when I'm really tired, I do nothing -- I just have a burger and sleep.
