An autopilot is a system used to control the trajectory of a vehicle without constant 'hands-on' control by a human operator being required. Autopilots do not replace a human operator, but assist them in controlling the vehicle, allowing them to focus on broader aspects of operation, such as monitoring the trajectory, weather and systems.
Hi! I am Albert Lombarte and I've been both coding and leading software engineering teams for the past 18 years (started 1999) in Internet companies with hundreds of engineers and small start-ups. My coding background is related to backend, architecture and operations (sysadmin) and I've been leading large developments for web, mobile, desktop, SaaS and infrastructure in several sectors.
With a strong network of contacts, collaborator engineers and providers I offer advice, hands-on and direction for your product and engineering teams. Be as interim CTO, team lead, advisor, consultant, developer or sysadmin me and my team can help you.Know me on LinkedIn
When it comes to Software Engineering, from a technical or organisational perspective I definitely can help. Every organisation is different and we know how to balance the technical talibans with the product cookie monsters.
Check for health of engineering teams and processes including interaction with product management to raise areas of improvement in a myriad of topics such as team organisation, methodologies, development workflow, business continuity, high availability, scalability, performance, product roadmap vs resources...
We will help you prepare for true growth and offer good response times. Make your site faster, safer, more scalable and predictable.
Pick the right design for your needs, without overengineering, but ready to hold your current load and for what will come in the future. Goodbye to monoliths and spaghetti code.
Help during the recruitment process to validate candidates. We will choose the candidate that gives most value to you and will ensure that the technical level is what you need and the one who fits your engineering culture.
If your development workflow, processes or team organisation are getting in the middle of the product release, we will help you unblock your bottlenecks
Of all colours and shapes. Whether be moving to the cloud, transitioning to a new architecture, change the coding language, users and services living between two systems?
Hands-on in development of web sites, internal tools, databases, APIs, microservices, testing, architecture.
Be cloud or metal hardware, administration of services, architecture, automation, provisioning and tuning for better throughput.
Introduction of Scrum or Kanban methodologies in the teams, design of the product backlog and product roadmap, make product and engineers work together, solve conflicts of tight deadlines vs technical debt...
Like your personal trainer when you go out running, but with software engineering. For profiles (C-level, directors, VPs) that shine in their work but aren't so strong at technical level. Training for developers on best practices, methodologies, performance, architecture.
Have a technical, organisational and product SWOT analysis before you invest in any company. Nobody wants to buy a shiny product underpinned by rotten foundations.
We know how hard is to find certain positions. We can help you do that while we keep the progress of your business by acting as such.
Some companies I helped:
Let’s have a conversation on how are you currently working and let’s find out what are the immediate benefits you can have. Get in touch and I will get back to you immediately!
