My name is Romén Rodríguez-Gil and I live in the beautiful island of Tenerife (Spain). Besides being a Software Engineer and Internet Entrepreneur, I am a Lifelong Learner who seeks continuous improvement and cares about the human side of technology.
The digital world has fascinated me since I was very young. Professionally, I have been working in the software industry for more than a decade, wearing many different hats. As a software engineer, I have worked on many different products, teams and technologies. As a manager and entrepreneur, I have led several multidisciplinary teams and worked on business development, innovation management, user experience and digital marketing, learning very valuable lessons. Thanks to these varied experiences I have developed a 360-degree view of the digital industry.
Over the years, I have become a convinced supporter of Agile Software Development, as well as its business counterpart, Lean Startup. Moreover, I am also well aware that “Peopleware” are the key element of knowledge-based companies, although many forget about that. In this sense, as a blogger, speaker and consultant I try to contribute my bit by highlighting the benefits these empirical and more human approaches provide, both for developers and for managers.
Despite all the above, I also love to spend time away from technology, be it having fun with friends, training at the gym or going hiking with my wife.
