Software Engineer & Entrepreneur
Hi! I'm Jorge Ferreiro, a 23-year-old Software Engineer and Entrepreneur, with a passion for design and a desire to create software products that solve real problems and improve people's lives.
In 2018, I did a Software Development Engineer internship at Amazon in Luxembourg (their european HQ offices). In summer 2017, I studied at UC Berkeley (CS 61BL and COLWRIT 9I) and prior to that, I finished my Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science at UCM. In 2016 I did an scholarship in China with Huawei.
I've launched two personal projects that I'm really proud of: Dailyfocus (a productivity application for busy people) and Music4deejays (a music application to promote young artists that reached 56,000 downloads).
