By June 22, 2020 No Comments

In our Neueda Life blog series, we introduce you to members of our team working either remotely during the pandemic or in one of our offices around the world. This time, we’re heading to Malaga to catch up with Senior Software Engineer David Cuesta and find out more about his background, current role, and what he loves the most about life at Neueda. 

My Background
After graduating with a science degree from the University of Malaga, I went on to complete a Master’s that focused on Analytics with Big Data. I’m proud to have achieved the highest academic performance possible and was asked to become a Professor for the Master’s Degree course. 

I applied the Capital Markets knowledge I gained through preparing classes on Big Data to my role with a large software company that worked with global financial institutions. Through focusing on programming, I gained valuable experience working with different technology solutions and software programs related to Big Data.

Joining Neueda
A colleague introduced me to Neueda when I was looking for a fresh challenge. I got a great feeling about them from the interview and could tell this was an ambitious company with big plans. 

I joined in October 2019 and straightaway enjoyed their way of working. I work with a team of eight developers and delivery managers who are divided between Belfast and Malaga, so communication is crucial. We make sure we speak to both each other and our clients’ teams every day. 

The majority of my work is in Capital Markets, where I deal with large amounts of data and help to solve problems for our clients and the company. Our team is hands-on with a wide range of technology solutions to help us process data and combat any issues that might arise. 

Neueda Experience So Far
I’ve been overwhelmed by the positivity of the Neueda team. We all genuinely enjoy coming to work, and even when I’m working away in the Belfast office, it feels like we’re one big family. It’s clear that Neueda values its people and everyone is incredibly supportive and goes the extra mile to make sure you’re taken care of. The company has ambitious plans, and it’s fantastic to contribute to its future growth.

Outside Of Work, You’ll Find Me…
Playing and watching football – I try to play at least once a week. I also enjoy spending time with friends and family, whether that’s going to the cinema or out for dinner – things I can’t wait to do again soon!

Stay tuned to our Neueda Life blog series to find out more about the experiences of our dedicated team.
