Welcome to Fluid Truck’s Employee Spotlight blog! We love highlighting our awesome employees and introducing you to the great people behind Fluid Truck.

This month’s Employee Spotlight centers on Francisco A., one of our product managers. Francisco is a member of our Buenos Aires team, which works out of Argentina. Fluid Truck is lucky to have a team located all over the United States as well as Argentina. We have developed an exchange program where employees in Buenos Aires visit our Denver, CO headquarters for a few months at a time to get fully immersed in the Fluid Truck HQ culture.

When you aren’t working, what are you usually doing?
When i’m not working i’m playing football – sorry – soccer not football!
Besides that, I am meeting with friends, and that’s my life! I would love to say hiking, because in Denver I do a lot of that, but in BA it’s not possible.
What’s your favorite part of your job?
I love meeting and coordinating with people that I consider to be very smart and very friendly. These people are mostly developers and designers. I love working together with them.
Do you have any pets?
I have two cats! Their names are Klaas and Nikita.
Do you support any sports teams?
Oh yes! I support Boca Juniors [soccer team from Argentina] and as of recently, the Denver Nuggets, since they are from Denver and we love Facundo Campazzo [an Argentenian player for the Nuggets]! We’re so happy he joined the team.
What’s the best career advice you’ve ever received?
During an interview process, make sure these points get across: you’re someone people can delegate to, and you’re someone who’s nice to have around.
Any secret talents?
I like to play the guitar as well! I play classical music mostly.
Do you have a favorite line from a movie or book?
“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need.” – from Marcus Tullius Cicero’s “A Pillar of Iron”
If you could have a Fluid Truck full of one thing, what would it be?
I would turn the back of the van into a living room and have friends jump in as I travel the country! A Fluid Truck full of friends.
