Hum Capital

Hum Capital offers a funding platform that pairs growth companies with investors and lenders to make funding equitable, efficient, and accessible.

I was fully responsible for many essential pieces in developing the new automated onboarding flows to help increase Hum Capital's conversion rate for the new companies signing up for the platform.

I performed as a tech lead in my team since I was recognized as one of the most experienced software engineers. The seek of mentorship allowed me to help engineers understand better the current architecture of the systems and the opportunity areas to define new ways to improve future development.

I introduced innovative techniques to increase the code quality (three proposals of five were approved by the entire engineering team).

Other contributions were working directly with the IT director to achieve the following goals:

  • Define new processes and improve the existing ones to increase visibility in the Engineering Department.
  • Produce outstanding metrics every sprint to report directly so they can be reported to the Chief Technology Officer.
  • Reduce the risk of having requirement leaks
  • Define good habits such as regular planning, pointing, and retro meetings to improve the communication and productivity of the team.
