Carlos L.

My professional experience can be summarized into a single word: Versatility.

Carlos L.

Client Success Manager

My professional experience can be summarized into a single word: Versatility. From working in cafés as a waiter or a line cook to being a guitar and English teacher to working as an Electrical Engineer (since that’s what I graduated from) to doing what I’m doing now: SEO/SEM projects. The achievement I cherish the most is the fact that if I wanted to return to any of the jobs I used to work in, my previous bosses would run parades to celebrate. I’ve always had great relationships with my team members and bosses because of my work ethic and overall personality. But one thing I always remember with pride is when I was working as an Electrical Engineer and had to fix a VSD that stopped oil production from a specific well very suddenly; it was only a new guy I was teaching and I, and we managed to spot the problem immediately, reported it, got the spare parts and fixed it without any problem. It was my first "corrective maintenance", as they call it in that industry!

What was your very first job?

My very first job was as a line cook. My brother was given a kitchen space to run a buffet lunch, and it was only his girlfriend (at the time gf, now it’s his wife!), him, and I. I was 16 and just graduated from high school. I remember that job very fondly because it was with my brother, and he taught me many cooking techniques and recipes I still use today.

What is your favorite food or drink?

My favorite food is ‘pastelitos’, it’s a traditional food from the city I live in, Maracaibo. It’s basically a pastry filled with anything you can think of, but my favorite is called "papa con queso" (potatoes and cheese). It’s 2 layers of thin dough, you place it on a table, put the fillings on top, and then cover it with the other layer, you seal it, and then you fry it until it’s golden brown. Just delicious.

What is something unique about you?

I can play the guitar and the drums!

Digital Performance Specialist

I love managing Google Ads campaigns not only because I’m (almost) good at it, but because Google Ads and the digital marketing field are constantly evolving and you never get bored learning about new trends and technologies. When I’m not working I like building scale models of armored vehicles (tanks, mainly). I make this not just a simple “plastic gluing” process, but a “big project” where I have to learn historical details about each vehicle and research images and movies.

What was your very first job?

My very first job was as a construction materials salesman. It wasn’t something I enjoyed, but it was an easy-to-get job because. . . nepotism (I was hired because I was my father’s son :D).

What is your favorite food or drink?

My favorite drink is coffee (with a lot of milk – 50/50%).

What is something unique about you?

Being the Ping Pong school champion in 2nd grade doesn’t count? Then I'll say that, all by myself on the weekends, I once built a fence 160+ feet long, European style with a concrete foundation, brick, and mortar. It only took me six months!

Franklin R.

Client Success Manager

I'm 29 years old - born and raised in Managua, Nicaragua. I've been working in the Digital Marketing industry for 2+ years now, prior to that I worked a few years in Enterprise Technical Support and 5+ years as a Freelance Translator. I'm passionate about technology, literature and music (I love playing piano and guitar, and doing music production as a hobby). My professional goals for the future include continue growing in the Digital Marketing industry and become this omnichannel expert that can help any kind of business grow online. To achieve this I want to learn more about data science, website development, machine learning, etc. My personal goals include mastering the piano and guitar, learn more music theory and production (and hopefully record an album someday :p).

What was your very first job?

My first-ever job was at the age of 18 at a call center, I worked as a quality analyst for the email correspondence team. It was a great experience since I got to meet tons of people of different ages. This kicked off my journey as a professional.

What is your favorite food or drink?

I don't have a specific favorite food, but I do love Italian and Asian cuisine (I'd say my top dishes are sushi, ramen, pasta and pizza). My favorite drinks are any type of natural fruit juice (except papaya!), and I'd say my top one is cantaloupe juice.

What is something unique about you?

I wouldn't say I have unique traits, but something I'm very proud of myself is my autodidact approach to life. I'm very curious about how everything works, so by playing around with my PC/Laptops I've learned a lot about how hardware/software, I taught myself to play piano/guitar and music theory. I love languages (and communication in general) so I'm teaching myself to speak French (baby steps though), and I continue to practice English as much as I can and increase my vocabulary. Oh and I'm obsessed with the universe (black holes and stuff) - but it bugs me because we'll never fully know how the universe works, which is probably the reason of my obsession.
