Hi Dani, what do you do at Creditspring?

My job title is Principal Engineer - I work as a bridge between product and engineering. Right now I'm helping to improve how we collect payments. The most rewarding part of my job is when we work together on a feature that ends up being loved by our customers, and works flawlessly.

What did you do before joining Creditspring?

I've been a programming enthusiast since I was 12. I also liked technology, so I studied telecommunications engineering at university, but soon realised that I'm best at coding, and so left electronics to be a hobby. I've been working in many sectors since 2005, such as communications, public administration, car dealership, accommodation and insurance, and now I’m in finance.

What’s changed since you started working at Creditspring?

I started as Senior Engineer, when there were just two of us in my team - I was the sixth employee of the company! I’ve always worked remotely from Spain, but have made frequent visits to the office in London a few times a year. Lots of things have changed since I joined, as the company is transitioning from a small startup to a medium-sized serious business. A growing company is the best place to be!

What excites you about Creditspring?

We have the right vision. It can only get better.
