He tenido la suerte de trabajar con Chema (José María) en Cocomore AG para Samsung y estaría encantado de volver a coincidir con él en otro proyecto.

Chema tiene un perfil mixto que no es sencillo de encontrar, por una parte es un gran profesional con un conocimiento técnico muy profundo y la experiencia que aporta el hacer los desarrollos de primera mano (Hands-on).
Por otra parte, es un gran Manager, siempre atento a los requerimientos del Cliente, como así también a lo que necesita el equipo, sus propuestas y ofreciendo soluciones innovadoras a escenarios complejos. Por último, Chema es un ser humano increíble que es capaz de generar un excelente ambiente donde trabajar y compartir, lo que genera una productiva inercia entre los equipos y deja de manifiesto su sólida inteligencia emocional.
