Carlos Ortiz Is a Software Engineer. He has been with EDICOM for almost a year, developing one of our core software, moving between technologies such as Java and Spring, in a great atmosphere that goes beyond the walls of the office.

EDICOM: What is your role in EDICOM?

CARLOS ORTIZ: At EDICOM I am part of the Development team. Specifically, in my team what we do is develop Ediwin, EDICOM’s own software, which is used for transferring data between different companies, such as electronic invoices, despatch advices, and so on.

E: What do you appreciate most about your work?

C.O.: One of the things I value most about my work is the opportunity that EDICOM, as a company, gives me to develop code that is then used by cutting-edge companies in the sector. Another thing I really appreciate is the working atmosphere and the connection that there is among our colleagues.

E: What challenges crop up in your work?

C.O.: My work in EDICOM poses different challenges on a technical level, for which I need to be constantly learning. Apart from this, it also enables me to learn about ideas linked to subjects not related to development, such as e-invoicing concepts.

E: Favourite technologies

C.O.: At EDICOM we mainly work with Java, with Spring. And what I most appreciate is that lately we are moving towards the creation of microservices, which is about isolating the code, according to different applications, in small chunks, with the aim of making maintenance easier and being able to use different technologies in each of them.

E: Favourite times in EDICOM.

C.O.: In addition to the good vibes among colleagues, we do activities outside of work, some organized by EDICOM and others not. For example, one of them held by EDICOM was a paddle championship that served to bring us all together. After that, we have continued to meet from the Seville office to engage in other activities such as paintballing or simply going for a drink.
