Careers

We believe that the best work happens when talented people trust each other enough to take risks and be real. We’re passionate, curious and committed to doing great work.

Agustín Azzinnari

Agustín Azzinnari

PM & Research Engineer. B.S. in Computer Engineering

According to most experts, Agustín's curly hair acting as an extension of his brain is the cause of his amazing mathematical and programming skills.

He has a BS degree in Computer Science focused on Machine Learning techniques. He is great for doing research and analysis of problems as well as writing clean and super quality Python code.

Being an expert in every single aspect of social media APIs and backends, Agustín is oddly enough the only one in the office that doesn't have a facebook account.

Agustín Azzinnari
Alan Descoins

Alan Descoins

CTO & Partner. B.S. in Computer Engineering

Our CTO is not human. He can't be. He is the only Engineer we know that can quote every line of The Lord of The Rings while calculating 30 digits of Pi in real time.

Alan is production-ready and optimized for high performance. He is a pioneer in Python and Machine Learning and he was into Data before it was Big.

While he is not developing the best tools available, he is usually seen in the beaches of Rio de Janeiro singing to Brazilian tunes.

Alan Descoins

Alejandro Martínez

Alejandro Martínez

Operations Manager & Partner. B.S. in Computer Engineering

Internationally known for being the inspiration for Lady Gaga's song Alejandro, Ale is also an outstanding Python developer that travels back and forth between back-end and front-end programming without even feeling it.

When he is not coding amazing algorithms and web apps, he is in the soccer stadium supporting for his team, Peñarol

He is the office prankster and he has the strange habit of eating burgers making circles with them.

Alejandro Martínez
Braulio Ríos

Braulio Ríos

Full-stack Developer. B.S. in Electrical Engineering

Braulio's relationship with engineering is labeled as "it's complicated". He has an Electrical Engineering degree and loves circuits and hardware, but also started to have some strong feelings towards bits and algorithms and now it all got confusing.

He can be defined as a curious and focused mind with an awesome sense of humor, who enjoys teamwork and collaboration. He's a fixer and our go-to guy for any hardware related problem.

Oh... did we mention he co-founded of one of the most successful music bands in Uruguay?

Braulio Ríos
Bruno Sena

Bruno Sena

Full-stack Developer

Bruno Sena, AKA Bruce Dine is a programming super hero and an avenger of the full stack development, being great with Python, Javascript and way to many technologies to count. He’s known around the office for his eternal smile and his extended knowledge of all the city streets thanks to many hours of biking around for fun.

He’s from a small city called Durazno, which you can literally translate as “Peach town”. We think that’s the reason why he always has a peachy attitude and eats so much fruit-- if an apple a day keeps the doctor away, he is never going to meet a doctor!

Bruno Sena
Diego Gadola

Diego Gadola

Frontend expert & Full-stack Developer

Full stack developer and full stack person, Diego is friends with everyone at the office.

Ernesto Rodríguez
Esther Rietmann

Esther Rietmann

Internet Marketer

After chocolate, Roger Federer and the LHC, Esther is one of Sweden's Switzerland's greatest accomplishments.

She’s in charge of our website, marketing and social media. Her job is to spread the word about Tryolabs everywhere, while sharing our unexplainable obsession with dinosaurs with the rest of the world.

Fabián Torres

Full-stack Developer. B.S. in Electrical Engineering

Fabian is an Engineer in every sense of the word and has a brain that is hardwired to learn new techniques, create practical solutions and analyze and solve complex problems. He possesses an encyclopedic knowledge of almost every known subject and, in a one-desk-radius around him, Google search usage diminishes considerably.

He believes in the power of the post-it, and uses them as a backup for storing information when his brain reaches the human limit.

Fabián Torres
Fabrizio Albertoni

Fabrizio Albertoni

Research Engineer. B.S. in Computer Engineering

Fabrizio's extreme love for AI make us think that if at any point in the future the robots take over, we can be sure that Fabrizio will be instrumental in their victory.

Facundo Parodi

Facundo Parodi

Full-stack Developer. B.S. in Computer Engineering

A Computer Engineer that loves mathematics and developing software. Facu is a super practical mind and enjoys all discussions about the best way to solve a complex problem. Machine Learning problems are among his favorites and it's very probable that you'll find Facu talking about a new Computer Vision algorithm late at night at a house party.

He's a speed-demon, a mega-talented guitar player and a nightmare to play against on any first person shooter game. On a separated note, he's among the 1% of Tryolabs that doesn't drink coffee, so… deal with it I guess.

Facundo Parodi
Federico Grunwald

Federico Grunwald

Full-stack Developer

Our very own Jack Black Look-a-like, Fede, not unlike JB, is very talented and adapts to every situation.

He started loving backend and quickly moved to frontend. He imagines a thousand different solutions for each engineering problem and is always eager to try them all. Fede is a member of a inexplicably numerous family, and is the kind of guy that knows everybody everywhere.

Fede loves to travel and although he’s a great friend, he has never shared with us his super secret contact for getting free plane tickets. Please, Fede, we won’t tell!

Federico Grunwald
Felipe Osimani

Felipe Osimani

Felipe Osimani
Fernando Suzacq

Fernando Suzacq

Full-stack Developer. B.S. in Computer Engineering

A gifted Engineer, a full stack developer and a San Antonio Spurs fan. Fernando plays with playoff intensity in every project, he 3-points all stand-up updates, blocks and rebounds nasty bugs, shakes and bakes the back-end and slam dunks the front-end. But as any Spur, he's mostly that glue-guy that assists amazingly and play for the team members. He is our official MVP.

Is there a Basketball analogy for being super smart and humble at the same time? Well if there is, then Fernando is that too.

Fernando Suzacq
Gastón Rodríguez

Gastón Rodríguez

Full-stack Developer. B.S. in Computer Engineering

Apart from a very talented developer, Gastón is a Mathematics professor at the engineering school and loves to be involved in projects where his academic background is of great value.

He’s a fast-learner and a guy highly motivated by research and state of the art Machine Learning. He’s been involved in projects where mixing ML, robotics and complex backends are the bread and butter.

As the complex individual he is, Gastón is very measured and polite in the day time, while spending dark nights using his FB persona to let off steam, cheer and even sing awful pop songs.

Gastón Rodríguez
Germán Hoffman

Germán Hoffman

PM & Full-stack Developer. B.S. in Computer Engineering

As Jebediah Springfield once said, "A noble spirit embiggens the smallest man". German must have a very noble spirit, because he is freakishly big. In a former life he was a farmer of some kind and made it to the top in the cheese industry, but gave it all up to become an Engineer and a big name in open source.

He contributed to the Scrapy Framework and he is interested in networks, computer security, robotics, computer vision and basically all things tech.

He loves throwing legendary parties and he is a tremendously generous host. Bear in mind, if you Airbnb at his place you will have the best tour guide for Montevideo you can think of.

Germán Hoffman
Giulia Barros

Giulia is productivity and high performance in human form. She knows what we need before we even know we will need it.

She delights us not only with great work organizing our office and meeting but by sharing her delicious cookies and desserts.

Giulia Barros
Guillermina Umpiérrez

Guillermina Umpiérrez

Graphic Designer

Loving visual arts from birth, Guillermina represents a beacon of style and design amongst the nerdiness of our team. She’s behind our beautiful logos, graphics, banners, materials and in some cases, the cool works of art we have hanging at our office.

She has a creative mind and loves to participate in UX related conversations with our engineering team to improve the products we work on.

With Guille you can spend hours just talking about fonts and the concepts behind them and discussing the latest visual trends. She’s also a great dancer having participated in contemporary dance plays and has the strange habit of eating lemon peels... it’s weird.

Guillermina Umpiérrez
Ian Tayler

Ian Tayler

This mix allows him to tackle the most complex problems in NLP, but it doesn't end there. His passion about programming, hacking compiler backends and learning engineering techniques, gives him the resources to solve all kinds of challenging problems.

Ian loves books and he learned the theory and rules of ping pong by reading a book about it. He's great at Go (ranked the 4th best Uruguayan at PandaNet) and because of his height he's the only one able to cover German at the office's basketball matches.

Ian Tayler
Javier Berneche

Javier Berneche

Full-stack Developer

Javier's story in Tryolabs did not start easily. He was the third Javier in the company so he really had to stand to the other Javier's, prove himself and make his own name.

Being a great team-mate, exceeding at every project and nailing each line of code, he managed to become the De-Facto Javier and now the whole company proudly calls him just 'Javier' and uses nicknames for the two others.

In a nutshell, the guy is a problem solver fueled by Mate.

Javier Berneche
Javier Couto

Javier Couto

PM & Research Scientist. PhD in Natural Language Processing

Javier has more than twelve years of experience in international research projects, both in the industry and in the academia. He holds a PhD in Natural Language Processing from Paris-Sorbonne University.

Did we mention he is the best? He is the best.

Leonardo Piñeyro
Lucas Micol

Lucas Micol

Full-stack Developer. B.S. in Computer Engineering

Lucas is a software engineer and a fan of robotics and all things mech. He has such a deep dedication when experimenting with new technologies, that he develops sort of a 24/7 awareness super power. This caused the rumor that he spent a night at the office during the Hackathon to finish the construction of a mini-robot. No sleep necessary with Lucas.

He's organized at a so high level that it becomes grotesque, having a Trello board for every little aspect of his life. This, together with his great team player skills make him the kind of person you want to be in a project with.

Lucas Micol
Lucía González

Rodrigo knows all the trick of the trade. He is a tinker, a code artisan and an applications crafter. His working experience in development started in 2005 using J2EE, then a few years later he discovered Python and everything changed for good.

Rodrigo is a problem solver, a creative mind and an inspiration to all of us. Our best estimation is that 8 out of 10 of our office memes and emojis are Rodrigo-inspired and although he does not admit it, he loves that kind of attention.

On a separate note: Rodrigo likes to party... a lot.

Rodrigo Herrera
