I've had the pleasure of working with Jose for the past 6 months. He is an incredible Architect with a wealth of knowledge and experience behind him. A valued member of my team and a consummate professional. In addition to the technical expertise he brings he also adds value with his warm personality. Jose is extremely approachable and stakeholders love him. He is always willing to go the extra mile to get the job done and never settles for anything less than perfect (well as perfect as code can be)! I know I can trust him 100% to manage the developers in my Malaga team, he's always happy to help, assist and train the developers below him ensuring their career growth alongside his own. A great guy and a valued colleague. Posted in Linkedin

Jose is a very experienced IT Architect and you can corroborate the wealth of his experience by looking at the results of all projects he launches. I had the opportunity to work with him in the launch of 3 different websites for the GUS group and they were all delivered impeccably. He's also very approachable and always willing to go the extra mile to get the work done! I knew I can trust him. I would recommend Jose to any organisation without a doubt! Posted in Linkedin

Trabajar con José María ha sido un auténtico honor. Es increíble su capacidad de dirigir un equipo y sacar el mejor partido y rendimiento de cada uno de sus integrantes. En GUS se ha encargado de echar a andar el departamento de desarrollo sacándole el mejor rendimiento hasta el punto de lanzar proyectos en cuestión de días. Siempre está dispuesto a ayudar, enseñar y aportar lo mejor de él en sus trabajos. Sus conocimientos técnicos además son sobresalientes, lo cual no le impide querer aprender y mejorar constantemente. Espero y deseo volver a coincidir con él pronto trabajando codo con codo. Posted in Linkedin

During the past year I had the opportunity to work with José in several web development projects to enhance our online services and communications between the business and the customers. José managed the projects from conception to implementation, providing ideas and suggestions for improvement to align the business requirements with the customers needs, offering the best user experience, and following up with us to assist with any technical questions and generally ensuring the implementation was running smoothly. José is professional, commited and proactive, it has been a pleasure to work with him. Posted in Linkedin

Jose Maria was a real asset to our team at GUS. We worked together for well over a year on two website projects. Both projects demanded dedication, attention to detail and creativity and Jose, as a senior on the development team, had it all. I was particularly impressed with his ability to quickly resolve any issue while keeping calm under pressure. He was always just a phone call away and willing to help which made my job much easier. I highly recommend Jose and truly believe that his talent will be a valuable addition to any team. Posted in Linkedin
