MARCO ALVAREZ

Product Manager | Android Engineer

Since last year I have been working as a Product Owner and Product Manager. Before becoming a product guy I worked three years as android & web developer. In my heart I'm still a developer, so I use my spare time to try new technologies (mainly for android and web) and I love to create apps with Augmented Reality and Geolocation.
