Describe yourself in 3 words
I am analytical, methodical, and optimistic. The last point makes me being a happy guy. I guess I always use it to “look on the bright side of life”.

Especially the employees around me, because some of them (some are still here, others have left the company) make me happy to work here.
Can you tell us a bit about your path within Tradedoubler?
I started to work in UK, Telford office as part of the technical support team. Then I began to grow up in the company until to move to Madrid (where I was from) to be a Senior Technical AM.

As a Technical Support Executive.
How long have you been in the affiliate industry, and what attracted you to it?
I have been working on it. 10 years, the same time as I have been here in Tradedoubler. Before I started at Tradedoubler, I was a front-end developer, so I had no idea about the affiliate industry.
What is the biggest lesson that you have learned in your career?
I don’t know how to choose just one. I have learned a few lessons throughout my career.
What do you do when you are not working?
If I am still alive, I want to rebuke young people who say that everything was better when I was young and able to do whatever better than they….
I also hope to live in front of the sea, with good weather all the time.
Tell us an interesting fact about yourself that the team doesn’t know?
I used to make fantastic paellas (sometimes with seafood and chorizo, only to piss someone else off).
Do you have any tips for those who want to start a career in the industry?
I am not really good giving tips. I guess, be yourself and work on it every day, and match by match.
