It's that time of the year again.
Every year, we share our team's new year resolutions, to see what we're pledging to do throughout the year, both in the business and the personal side.
As a remote team, we barely see each other throughout the year. This kind of initiatives help us bond deeper and create the atmosphere of a virtual office.
We have been doing this for four years now, and we're soon wrapping up our fifth in operations, so it's good to take a look at the progression of our personal development and ambition over the years:
- Our New Year's Resolutions for 2015
- Our New Year's Resolutions for 2016
- Our New Year's Resolutions for 2017

What have our Martians got in store for 2019?
Oriol Collell - Backend Developer
Oriol wrapped up 2018 by getting married. What a good way to end a fantastic year! Congratulations, Martian!
Pablo Rivera - Full-Stack Developer
Pablo has been with us for almost two years now, working from the beautiful region of Asturias, and he leads the internal drawing competition we're running inside the company.
Jordi Vendrell - COO
Jordi has managed to keep us in the black for another year. He's the master of financials and of reports with unusual textures on the graphs and charts.
David Gómez - Backend Developer
David has recently become a dad, so definitely 2018 was a tremendous year for him. First-time parenting is taking a lot of time from his hobbies, but… isn't it rewarding when they look at you like that?
Juan Artero - Backend Developer
Juan has been rocking the hardcore backend-intensive Ruby projects of the company, switching between projects a few times this year.
Javier Artero - Frontend Developer
Javier kicks off the new year with a new baby that's due to come out in a few days. Ready to ship a new baby to the world? Let's see what he's pledging to:
Bego Echeverría - Office Manager
Bego recently admitted that had never worked for a company for so long before joining MarsBased. She's been with us almost two years now, so… congratulations! To many more years!
Daniel Gómez - Full-Stack Developer
Dani has sort of developed a teacher inside that we had never known about. He's been the React evangelist in the company, and will start teaching at a developer's bootcamp, it seems!
Àlex Rodríguez - CEO
I used 2018 to test different routines: work routines, new sleeping habits, new environments, and so on. I can now cherrypick the ones I will stick to for the new year.
Xavier Redó - CTO
Xavi has made his debut in public speaking at conferences this year. However, he's also here and there and everywhere in our projects, as he is the technical reference point of the company.
David Garmendia - Frontend Developer
David has been in Barcelona for almost two years now, and he totally did an awesome job organising our last company retreat to Dublin!
Notice someone missing? Well, that would be Oriol, who's currently on his honeymoon leave right now. We wish him all the best from Mars!
