Featured Team Member: Rodrigo Tristany
SnowShoe is thrilled to round out 2021 with an exciting new addition to our team. Rodrigo Tristany joins us this week as a Senior Mobile Engineer working on SnowShoe’s newest mobile solutions for the company’s expansion in the independent retail market.
Rodrigo comes to SnowShoe with several years of experience as a software developer specializing in mobile technologies. He has worked with a number of platforms including Android native and Xamarin, developing apps for both internal and external clients.
The SnowShoe team met Rodrigo earlier this year when we developed the Go Downtown mobile app, which launched as a pilot program in Olympia, WA earlier this year. SnowShoe’s technical partner Darwoft led the development effort and Rodrigo was a primary contributor to the successful project.
The project presented many interesting challenges for Rodrigo as he worked on the integration of the SDK with SnowShoe’s proprietary Spark Technology®. He is extremely proud of the technical depth of the app and is looking forward to working on the next iteration of Go Downtown as a member of the SnowShoe team.
Prior to his career in engineering, Rodrigo studied construction in high school and worked in sales and administration. He first became interested in technology and software as a child when his family got an early DOS computer for their home. He went on to study engineering and earned a degree in computer science.
Rodrigo’s interest for mobile development lies in his passion for facing challenges head on. Mobile devices are short on resources when compared with larger computers, and he enjoys the challenge of developing a high-performing app on a device with as little as 1GB of RAM. And then there’s the added challenge of working with various device brands and operating systems.
His affinity for challenge may have something to do with his love of sports. In his free time, Rodrigo can be found on the soccer field, on the tennis court, in the pool, or at a chess board. He is an avid reader, gravitating mostly towards science fiction and fantasy books.
Joining the SnowShoe team is an exciting new endeavor for Rodrigo, as he sees lots of opportunity ahead for the company. He’s looking forward to growing as a developer at the same time as the company continues its momentous growth.
