Captain's log, stardate d480.y36/AB
Some days ago we published what had been keeping us busy in 2015. Lots of projects, events, growing the team, getting clients from abroad, new learnings and heaps of experiences.
With all that in mind, we've written the New Year's Resolutions for this 2016, just like we did last year. Here's the post with our 2015 Resolutions. Continue reading to find out what we'll be up to on 2016.
In no particular order, here's what the Martians pledged to achieve in 2016.
Our team keeps growing, and sport is among our top priorities this year!
Xavier Redó - CTO
Funnily enough, last year I introduced him with this sentence, which is also valid this year: "This past year has seen Xavi working hard to cope with all the projects we've gotten at MarsBased, therefore his resolutions are":
Francisco Javier López - Developer
Fran joined us in September 2015 as a Rails developer. He's permanently based in Murcia, thus becoming the first 100% remote employee of the company. We fly him to Barcelona for the Martian Days.
Javier Pérez - Developer
Javi is the first hire at MarsBased. He's been a year and a half with us already. Time flies!
Àlex Rodríguez - CMO
This past year has seen me become Regional Director at Startup Grind, which I have to balance with my business development responsibilities at MarsBased. Now I look forward to taking MarsBased to the next level!
Jordi Vendrell - COO
Jordi has combined his first year full-time at MarsBased with having co-founded his first child, Roger. He's the one that best embodies the quality aspect of MarsBased.
David Gómez - Developer
David joined MarsBased at the end of 2015 Q1 and has been mainly working on the Naiz project. He used to work with Javi and Àlex at VASS.
Xavier Simó - Developer
Xavier, not Xavi, joined right after David, at the end of 2015 Q1, from Ironhack. He's a pianist and you might remember him from his first blog post about code reviews.
Pedro Pimenta - Frontend Developer
We met Pedro when he was working at Mortensen, with whom we collaborated in three or four projects, mostly during 2014. He's Portuguese but lives in Barcelona. Well… he recently moved for some months to Mexico. Perks of being a remote company!
As you can see, comparing this year's resolutions to last year's, not only does the team grow, but also our ambitions.
