SHAUMBRA MAGAZINE: Where do you live?
JULIO: I live in Puebla, Mexico, close to the area of Cholula. Here, we are having a spring that is warmer and drier than usual. I prefer colder temperatures.
SM: Tell us about your family.
JULIO: I am married to Miriam, and we have a little girl – Arwen Alana – who is two years old. Miriam and I have been married for 4 years, but we have been together for about 12. My daughter was born right before the lockdown began back in 2020.
SM: What are your responsibilities and what do you do for CC?
JULIO: When I joined the Crimson Circle, I started in the store project, but later on, I was transferred to the Connection Center team, along with Alberto and René. I work on the front-end, which means I am in charge of the way users see and interact with the platform, so that it can be friendly and intuitive. In short, the objective is to provide the best user experience possible. Right now, we are focusing our efforts on the site for Keahak XII.
SM: What else have you done in this field? How did you find the Crimson Circle?
JULIO: I graduated as Engineer in Computing Sciences from the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla in 2017. Although I’d had some prior practice, I started my professional career at that time. I had some smaller jobs and then I started working for the University. I met Iván through this job and then he told me there was a work opportunity in the Crimson Circle in late 2021.
SM: What’s it like to work in such an unusual company?
JULIO: I joined the Crimson Circle in February 2022. It has been a revealing experience for me. I have learned to work under the best practices as part of a team that is very supportive. They share their knowledge. I thought I knew how to work, but I am realizing I still have so much more to learn. And what I am developing now is challenging but it keeps me moving, growing, and wanting to get better. I am very happy to be part of the Crimson Circle.
SM: Do you have any hobbies or passions?
JULIO: I like to read, especially fiction and fantasy. I like the story of the Lord of the Rings. And I am also discovering how much fun I have when I play with my little daughter. The truth is that I like to spend my spare time with my wife and my child.
SM: Is there anything else you’d like to share with Shaumbra?
JULIO: I am impressed by the Crimson Circle. The tech team is amazing to work with. And we are working hard to have everything ready for Keahak XII. We want Shaumbra to have the best experience!
