My name is Karel Castex. I was born and raised in Santa Clara, a small city located in the central region of Cuba. I had loved computers and programming since I was 12 which pushed me to pursue a career in the Computer Engineering field. At the age of 20, I was part of a 10 engineers' team responsible for architecting and executing a complex system encompassing Passport, ID, and Emigration.
I am currently an Engineering Manager within the Foundation team supporting the Developer Experience and Tools like API's SDKs. In the past years, I have tirelessly worked to grow my professional career path taking responsibilities over CORE functionalities, Services API, Responsive Web, Mobile Apps (iOS, Android, Xamarin), DevOps, leading engineers, and scaling teams.
