My new destination: San Francisco

After spending the last 10 months living in Rabat (Morocco), in a few weeks I’m starting a new project. My new destination is San Francisco, California, US.
I’m going to start working at SWARM mobile: http://www.swarm-mobile.com/. As described in Swarm webpage,

Swarm is committed to helping small business retailers understand their businesses and customers better. Our family of smart retail devices, coupled with advanced retail analytics and a comprehensive retail management platform, can help retailers increase sales through superior insights.

This opportunity is thanks to the Jóvenes con Futuro program: http://www.stepone.com/jovenes/about-the-program/.

The goal of the program is to match the brightest technical minds in Spain and arrange placement with companies in the San Francisco Bay Area and New York City.

 
I’m very excited about this new project. I expect to learn a lot and from the best.
