Durante el año en el que David estuvo liderando el equipo de trabajo, la percepción de calidad, entrega, pasión, compromiso fue extremadamente alta. Es una persona muy orientada a resultados, y a buscar la satisfacción del cliente, con la máxima flexibilidad por su parte. Gestionó la multiculturalidad con maestría, evitando en todo momento las fricciones habituales de proyectos complejos y multitudinarios. Bajo mi experiencia profesional y personal, es una personal altamente recomendable para trabajar tanto en grandes como en pequeños proyectos, siendo su presencia garantía de éxito.

Ignacio Charfole

Head of Big Data Architecture @ Telefonica Spain

I had a chance to work with David in a Big Data implementation project. He first listens and understands your need and requirement then propose the appropriate solution which makes both sides satisfied. You can ask him for advice about any type of technical question, he will certainly propose creative solutions or answers to your requirements with his high level of technology knowledge. You can always feel his supportive manner and he is really a good team-player. It was really valuable to work with him.

Zehran Can

Data Analyst @ Turkcell

I worked with David for several months on a Big Data project, though he wasn't involved since the beginning of the project, he quickly understood the main challenges and helped us move in the right direction, he is a very responsible and dedicated person, he is not only an excellent professional but also an amazing human being, always looking to deliver the best of him so that things can move forward.

Erik Cruz

Business Intelligence Analyst @ Claro Guatemala

As PMO director I was overseeing Claro Big Data Migration project. David was involved in several phases of the project with outstanding performance. For the last phase, the project got into lots of difficulties, and we had to specifically bring David back to Central America to solve them (Excellent customer relations, and we also considered him the right person for the job). His contribution to the project helped to accelerate delivery and results were fulfilled at an impresive speed (literally developed by him). While working on the Big Data project, he contributed on another ongoing project about data warehousing, provided valuable insights always going for the extra mile!

Ricardo Orellana

PM @ Huawei LATAM

David is a great professional, with a fantastic attitude and always eager to learn. His role from the professional services team has always been key, with the customer always in his mind. He is also able to blend in in very diverse project teams and also with different customer types. He really is a multi-cultural guy with experience from countries all around the world. His resilience is also remarkable, I've seen him performing under very hard circumstances and for very demanding customers. It has been a pleasure to have worked in cloud and big data projects worldwide with him.

Ignacio Barbudo

Presales @ Huawei SPAIN

David was my mentor for three weeks when I was carrying an internship at Spheris Digital Ltd. He is a very talented engineer with amazing problem solving skills, who is always willing to help and to teach, and from whom I learnt a lot. After I moved to Web Development, we cooperated for several key factors. His knowledge about topics not under his responsibility, the passion to solve problems, and his constant search for ways to do things better surprise me. From the workplace, I could see that he always respects deadlines and puts a lot of effort and passion to his work. It was a real pleasure to work with David, I highly recommend him.
