For our first ever Young Gun, we are speaking to the ever-intriguing Mr Caballero from our tech team....
I started looking at websites when I was 18 and had just started college. When I saw how easy it was to get a few pages and links between them working, I had to do more!
Frontend developer and UX designer - 8 months
I was freelancing for a big client in R/GA before this when I met another techie from Moteefe, Daniel Steele. I'd met him at a few events and he reached out to me as they needed a hand with frontend.
Since I always looked up to great figures in the industry (Jeremy Keith, Brad Frost, etc) I expected London to be the professional paradise but it's actually 4 or 5 companies that actually care about stuff. TBH I'm impressed with Moteefe being such a "small" startup and where we care a decent amount of stuff. But that's because of the people. That’s one of the reasons I joined because the team is outstanding! :D #goteam
We act as a middleman between anyone who wants to sell a design in some form or shape and his/her buyers. I make sure that creating a campaign, which is the platform where to selling your design in the form of products, is as intuitive as possible with User Experience Design, but then I also do some visual frontend, like animations and code consistency/reusability.
The connection between human behaviour and mathematical logic.
No programming language is as hard to understand as people are to figure out.
Marketing or Copywriting, because I like the idea of building an engaging story.
Progressive web apps, which allow websites to function as native apps, are very much a topic worth looking into at this stage, as it will have a huge impact in the near future.
The separation between people who focus on SPAs (single page applications) or just regular websites. It feels like at the moment they’re fighting to see who is right when I believe they should work together as they could complement each other in a beautiful symbiosis.
I sync a lot with Lev (Moteefe’s CTO), we have a great working relationship.
As a full-time Product Designer, with a stronger understanding of UI. I am much more focused on UX these days and will be focusing on UI on every chance I get.
Smashing Magazine or Awwwards.
I am a film buff -- I have watched too many movies and can critique direction, photography, writing and acting based on context and story.
Quora.com - has the most interesting questions with very qualified people behind the answers!
Think now of what you might regret later.
I always liked Design and Maths, so when I discovered CSS I fell in love completely. It’s the 'logic for design'.
I always say that if technology didn't exist then I’d be a carpenter. If there were no websites? I'd probably be doing something in the film industry.
