Hi; my name is Esteban Torres and I’m an
Engineering Manager @
I’m originally from 🇨🇷Costa Rica where I started as an
Engineer and quickly jumped on the
iOS badwagon; this led me to land a job as an
SoundCloud which of course led to me & my family moving to 🇩🇪.
SoundCloud I’ve worn many hats:
Listening Clusterand later on
Cross PlatformEngineer (
Core Clientswere I got to do
- And most recently
I used to be moderately active in the
iOS community and tried to attend different conferences (as an attendee as well as an speaker) but has since a couple of years slowed down a lot in that front.
Given my background I’m still figuring out my new role as an
EM where every day brings a lot of learninsg and more than one failure from my part. It is super exciting as there’s no dull day; which also makes it tiring due to the constant changes; never konw what to expect and the best tool I have is being able to adapt to whatever the situation throws at me.
I’ve been jotting down what I learn in a good old paper notebook which I’ll try to migrate to a more modern place in this website.
