What is your role? Describe a typical day in the life.
Until recently I had a dual role, serving as technical project leader, and Hub leader. Now I have moved into a more Hub support role to focus on the project.

Within the project, I am there to support the team, help define the tasks, eliminate blockages, give indications on how to do the development and also support the delivery part working hand in hand with the Project Leader. I also do development when time permits.

How do you explain your job to family, friends, or children?
I would usually tell my family that Perficient is a Software Development company, because they don’t have much of a technical background. But then I would explain to them that if they wanted to create a mobile application or a website that worked in a specific way, Perficient could help them.

Whether big or small, how do you make a difference for our clients, colleagues, communities, or teams?
I feel the way I make a difference is by impacting clients, prioritizing their needs, and supporting their requests. I consider that I focus more on the maintenance of things, rather than the development of things. In another sense, I bring more value by supporting my team and addressing customer requests with frequently asked questions, so that the team can focus on what is really important and not get distracted by the urgent.

What are your proudest accomplishments, personally and professionally? Any milestone moments at Perficient?
Professionally, I am proud of when I finally started working at Perficient (formerly PSL in Colombia). It was a great achievement because it was only until the third opportunity to go through the selection process that things finally came together.

Personally, I felt very proud when I bought an apartment for investment. It was a great effort of the last few years that allowed me to make that investment for my future.

What has your experience at Perficient taught you?
You can go as far as you want, there are opportunities and it’s up to you to take advantage of them to grow personally and professionally.

What advice would you give to colleagues who are starting their career with Perficient?
If you have a question, ask anyone. That person may not have the answer, but they will certainly help you find someone who does.

Why did you choose Perficient? What keeps you here?
I chose Perficient because of the high technical level of the people who work here, since I had the opportunity to interact with people who work in the company. And that’s exactly the reason why I’m still here, I feel that I’m still growing, I’m still learning from my colleagues, I still have references to be inspired by.

What motivates you in your daily work?
The impact I generate to clients and my team. The learning I get when I face day-to-day challenges. Being able to continue to grow around talented people.

With Perficient’s mission statement in mind, please answer at least one of the following questions.
I feel that at Perficient we break boundaries, because we don’t just stay with what we are initially asked to do, we go further and we are really consultants, where we see how we can optimize customer processes and solve problems that even they had not identified.

If you had to define yourself using one Perficient value, which would it be and why?
People, I believe that people are the ones who make this company, and make it move forward. The quality of the people here makes me inspired to grow and continue to develop as a professional.

What are you passionate about outside of work?
I am learning to cook, learning different ways to make pork and beef, using smoker ovens and steel pans.

Perficient believes in a strong work/life balance. What is one way you accomplish this?
I feel that the key is to set limits, at work we are always going to be busy, and it is unrealistic to pretend to finish everything in one day. Knowing how to estimate time and plan the work is key to avoid saturation and overexertion.
