Jess Poore

[Pablo] created such a great collaborative way of working, had a great relationship with his team and showed me many new ways of working. In particular how to lead teams in an effective and collaborative way that are remotely based.

Jess Poore, Founder of The Together Club


David Norris

I looked to [Pablo] and his team for examples of “what good looks like” as a remote/distributed team […], I can say that Pablo had created an environment made up of the right people and where each team member felt valued and was able to function without the need to be located in the same physical environment.

David Norris, HR Director, Wifinity


Goran Jovic

[Pablo] has a unique combination of strong technical skills and good grasp of the business side of things, which allowed him to very quickly set up a distributed team from scratch, bootstrap it with an amazing workplace culture, team spirit and group cohesion. And, of course, deliver results even within the first few months.

Despite the distributed nature of the company, Pablo was brilliant at building a good culture that made us all feel included, developers and non-developers alike. He organized games and movie nights for everybody to participate from home.
