HI, I’m Alejandro Asensio and I’ve spent the last years of my career leading high-performance teams achieving diverse and challenging goals.
I’ve assisted and encouraged valued autonomous and responsible teams, always having in mind not only the technical excellence but also the human perspective. The majority of the efforts made in this line were focused on:
By doing this, I’ve impacted positively the time to market results, the robustness, resiliency and performance of the teams and their outcomes.
On the other hand, I’ve also led business and customer engineer teams encouraging:
One example of what was achieved thanks to the KPIs defined was to be able to track an increase the ratio of RPFs earned which demonstrated that the approaches followed were a complete success.
I’ve had the fortune of joining companies in a high-growth momentum allowing me to be involved in several challenges in a changing and growing environment such as: organizational challenges, scale teams, hiring people, evolving processes etc.
One of the most exciting parts of my work is facing new challenges in any kind of subject: from human to technical and even organizational. I enjoy twisting my brain, finding new approaches, validating them with others and making them real… always open to iterate, adding other angles or amend whatever needs to be changed.
Another great part, or at least how I envision my role in this world, is being able to share my knowledge and making others, and myself too, grow. I love doing lighting talks, tech-talks, launch & learn, hackathons and any kind of session where anyone can learn and share best practices with others.
This is one of the reasons why I’ve promoted a few Meet-ups (mostly in Madrid area) regarding NoSQL Databases, Cloud Native Applications and Emerging Technologies. One of the events I am most proud of was the organization of the Conference of Agile Spain (CAS) in 2017th. It was an event located in Seville addressed to more than 1500 assistants around Agile: round tables, key notes, open call for talks with a rating system and many details for attendees, speakers and sponsors creating a great experience for all of them according to most of the feedback received.
