Jorge-Padua--Sales_Director
Jorge Padua Sr. VoIP Platform Engineer

I believe applications and software always need to look and behave like games. In this world users keep evolving and they are constantly facing complex situations that are easier to accomplish if they are rewarded with the appropriate feedback. Simple interfaces that help users solve complex problems, is how games are created and how all applications and software should be developed. I´m a true believer and supporter of real gamification strategies not just scores, leveling and badges.

Communication is the core of our business enabling it is my job. In order to do so I will manage feature definition, planning and progress as well as training. I’m capable of making the tough decisions and know when to say “no”. I know when to entrust and when to be hands-on in order to manage the morale and confidence of my teams. I’m a quality gate-keeper and I challenge my team to polish every single feature, design, piece of art or mechanisms when I’m sure they can deliver. I’ve had experience in the use analytics, key metrics and user feedback to determine user trends and behavior. Based on this principle I´ve worked and launched applications in many platforms and I'm always open to evaluate and try new technology.

In her spare time, you’ll most likely find Trudie in the kitchen whipping up a dessert like it’s nobody’s business. Felipe may be the chicken expert, but Trudie’s the cake connoisseur.
