I'm Oscar Chavez.

I'm a web/mobile developer πŸ“±, software engineer βš™οΈ, reverse engineer πŸ’₯ and cloud architect ☁️.

I'm currently working as a Founding Engineer, in charge of the Frontend and DevOps efforts at βš™οΈ Lean.

Before, I did some Cybersecurity Research and Technical Sales at πŸ”Ό Delta Protect.

Before that, I was CTO at a software company I co-founded, πŸ”»VR3.io, where I did a lot of interesting work, met awesome people and had the chance to grow very quickly as an engineer, manager and entrepreneur.

I've done a lot of on-site, remote and temporary contract jobs with clients (mainly) from Mexico πŸ‡²πŸ‡½, but also from US πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ and Europe πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί.

Meetups, events and conferences are something I'm always looking to assist or participate in. I'm always up to help the industry grow, give some career advice and meet amazing people 😎.

Also I love (to win) hackathons πŸ†!

Interested in working with me? Hit me up βœ‰οΈ
