SHAUMBRA MAGAZINE: Where are you in the world?

ALFREDO: I live in Puebla City, Mexico.

SM: Do you have family there?

ALFREDO: Yes, I have a wife, a 6-year-old boy and a dog. We have just recently moved to a new house, and this has made our life as a family together a lot better because we used to live in a much smaller space.

SM: What is your job with Crimson Circle?

ALFREDO: I’m involved in everything that has to do with data migration from Magento 1 to Magento 2.

SM: How would you explain it to someone who has no idea what that means?

ALFREDO: (chuckling) We are going from an older version (of the Crimson Circle store software) to a new version, so I am working to transfer all the user, order and product information from the old platform to the new one.

SM: Sounds like a very detailed project! Have you worked in this field a while?

ALFREDO: In 2013 I graduated from Benemerita Universidad Autonoma de Puebla (BUAP) as a Computer Science Engineer, and in 2014 began working for a company named Grupo Jobo. I worked there for seven years, starting as a junior developer, and growing in my responsibilities over time. For the last 3 years I was in charge of developing a special software for the hospitality industry and was managing 4 other people. That’s what I was doing when I was hired by Crimson Circle.

SM: Crimson Circle isn’t really a typical company. What’s it like to work here?

ALFREDO: When I’ve started work at other companies, usually I’m just the newest developer and it’s not a big deal. When I arrived at Crimson Circle I felt very, very welcomed. I could feel the warmth here, and I really like that.

SM: Do you have any hobbies or passions?

ALFREDO: I like to play video games with my son and also like carpentry and woodworking. Right now, I am creating and building furniture, desks and other pieces in our new house.
