Software Engineer looking for partners

About me

Hi, I'm Diego! I've been working in programming since 2007 and I'm currently living in UK. For the last 6 years I've been working on a start-up based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, UK.

First and foremost, I consider myself a problem solver. I'm a techie at heart and I enjoy using technology to help materialise ideas.

I joined Indie Hackers earlier this year and that motivated me to build things outside my 9-5 job. Recently, I had an idea for a project but didn't pass the validation stage since I couldn't find a market for it.

Perhaps not relevant but I'll be moving down to Birmingham in the next couple of months.

My Tech Stack

In more recent years I've worked with:

  • Programming Languages: Javascript/Typescript, Python, Kotlin.
  • Web development: React.JS, Redux, CSS, Webpack, Node.js, Express, Django.
  • DevOps: Github Actions, Docker, CI/CD in general.
  • Cloud providers: Google Cloud Platform, Vercel, Digital Ocean.
  • Mobile Development: Android, React Native.

My knowledge of CSS is decent but I've recently focused more on the backend side of things.

What I'm looking for

I'd be interested in meeting a partner(s) -- in marketing, tech, or other areas -- to build something together, whether they already have an idea or not.
I feel more attracted to projects with a goal of creating positive impact but I'm open to ideas.

    Hey Diego, I'm in a similar boat to yourself and looking for something impactful to work on. I'm probably more UX, marketing, sales biased but with a strong skillset in tech right up to pure coding. Have a couple of prototypes I've built in the health and eductech space that I could take you through if you're interested :)

    Hi Diego, you sound like just what I'm looking for!! Good to see some UK talent on here also! I'm based near Manchester. Anyway, I have a super cool idea I need a dev for, I can handle everything else, DM if it sounds like your gig.

    Hey Diego! I'm open and willing to brainstorm some ideas and think of some products we could work on together. I'm a self-taught developer currently working at a large tech company (US time zone) as a back-end engineer (< 1 year experience), but my background is in business/finance.

    Feel free to DM me!

      Thanks for replying @AggravatingGoose! How can we get in touch? I don't think you can DM people here.

    Hi, Diego!

    Just to clarify: do you think you could fit into a "Hacker" role in an early-stage, time-consuming, non-vc-funded startup?

      Thanks for the reply. For the time being I need to keep my 9-5 job, so i'm looking for a side project to work on nights and weekends.

    Hola Diego! Sounds great, my background is in marketing, sales and business development... (basically all everything growth). I really like that you’re in UK so we can have a friendly time-zone (I am based in Spain 🇪🇸).

    I’ll DM you on TW
