Luis Iñiguez’s Journey to Becoming a Ruby on Rails Engineer at Wizeline

Luis Iñiguez’s Journey to Becoming a Ruby on Rails Engineer at Wizeline

Ever since my dad brought home an old Printaform computer with a green and black monochrome monitor and a 386 processor when I was 6 years old, I have been obsessed with computers. I loved to take this computer apart, examine every part of it, and then reassemble it again, installing and using as much software as I could get my hands on in the process.

My persistent enthusiasm led my mom to enroll me in a programming course when I was 11. Learning how to program in Delphi and Basic swept me off my feet. I was really amazed by how they allow you to create something useful out of nothing. Back then, I didn’t even know that you could make a career out of programming, but I already loved it.

Later in life, I realized I had numerous skills that could make me a good computer engineer, like overanalyzing everything, excelling at math, disassembling things to learn how they work, etc.

In my final semester of computer engineering, I got introduced to C# by a great teacher and was impressed by the high level of abstraction. Years later, I was introduced to Python, which I found to be even more dynamic. 

When switching jobs, I got noticed because I had gained some experience with Python while working on my master’s degree. I was asked to apply my existing knowledge to learn Ruby on Rails. After researching a little bit, I jumped at the opportunity to become a Ruby on Rails engineer. Almost instantly, I was taken aback by the level of complexity and abstraction of Ruby and the easy and powerful implementation of Rails. It quickly became my programming language of choice.


My Experience So Far at Wizeline

I heard about Wizeline from my friends, who were talking about how cool it would be to work there, the employee-centric culture, and the perks offered by the company. I decided to apply to Wizeline because of all that, but mainly for the opportunity to grow in my career. Now that I’m a proud Wizeliner, I love being part of a company that cares about my well-being. I really enjoy the sense of ownership I have, and the perks are even better than expected.

So far at Wizeline, I’ve had the opportunity to work on projects for a healthcare technology company. In this partnership, I enjoy getting to interact with people from different cultures frequently. During my short time in the role, I have already implemented/researched some new functionalities and connectivity with other healthcare solutions, along with bug fixes and other improvements.
