Looking for a job

Mariana Rodriguez


I'm a Software engineer based in Colombia, highly focused on backend development and sw architecture


What I'm looking for

I'd like to work with people I can learn a lot from, have challenges, contribute with my skills and keep working on them and learning. I'd like to contribute in the health/science fields, but it is not a must. It would be interesting to work with AI, image processing, computer vision.

I have worked during +2 years as a Software engineer at two colombian tech startups, highly focused on backend development while using technologies like python, golang and AWS.

My last role was lead backend developer at Preki, I'm really passionate about software architecture design and like to be involved both in technical and product decisions.

My mentors and superiors have always told me that one of my biggest strengths is that I'm a very analytical person: I carefully analyze what's causing a problem before mindlessly attacking it, I think of all the pros and cons of a solution before approving it and I think a task through before actually starting to work on it.
