Software Engineer specialized in the geospatial interoperability field. I graduated with a Master's Degree in Computer Science from Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.

In 2006 I started to work on Wikiloc in my spare time and now we're a growing community of millions of outdoor enthusiasts sharing trails in 190+ countries.

On a personal level, I'm a vegetarian who likes to be outdoors trail running, back-country skiing or mountain biking when I’m not in the office.

Software engineer with a Degree in Computer Systems Engineering from the University of Girona.

Since 2005, my career has always been related to GPS, digital maps and their applications. Before joining Wikiloc, I was part of the Geographic Information Service and Remote Sensing (SIGTE) in the UdG, developing GeoWeb projects using open source technologies, spatial databases and OGC standards.

I've also developed GPS enabled mobile apps for feature phones, location-based services (LBS) and worked as a lecturer of Spatial Databases at the UNIGIS Master.

Wikiloc combines my passion for technology, cartography and enjoying nature discovering new places with my GPS.

Ivan Bianchi

Platform Engineer (år 5)

Software engineer with a Master's degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Girona

I'm a Software architecture and a Big-data enthusiast. I am captivated by the opportunities that these architectures can provide while I enjoy the journey of making them come true.

I also like to free my mind playing basketball or trail running while listening to my favourite music.

Computer science has become a passion and at Wikiloc I have the perfect place to overcome daily challenges and expand on my skills while working on a high impact platform for the community.

Roger Tallada

Mobile Engineer (år 4)

Software engineer with a Diploma in Computer Software from the Informatics University of Barcelona. I’m coming back to the software industry after working as an illustrator for some years, I previously worked as an analyst / developer for a magazine publishing company.

With the appearance of the iPhone and the new wave of touch devices, I became involved in software development again by working on personal projects. This allowed me to become familiar with the iOS development environment. I'm having a blast being a full time developer once more and working on apps aimed at users.

Another one of my passions is running, trail running in particular. Working at Wikiloc allows me to mix two of my favorite things, development and outdoor activities.

I'm a big systems engineering nerd, having worked with Apache Mesos, Docker and OpenStack on various projects. Nowadays, I obsess over web performance and keeping everything running smoothly.

Wikiloc allows me to work with systems with large amounts of users and traffic where every little change has a big and immediate impact.

Marc Garcia

Wearables Engineer (år 4)

Software engineer with a Master's degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Girona.

My interest in computers started with a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K. I’ve been working across different areas related to development, system administration and broadband networks.

Building products for wearables challenges me to solve complex problems and make them work nicely on limited resources. I’m always thinking about how to improve user experience and minimize the use of battery, memory and bandwidth.

I feel lucky to be a member of the Wikiloc team and to blend my passion for the outdoors and technology.

Jordi Casadevall

Platform Engineer (år 3)

Software engineer with a degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Girona

Computer science has fascinated me since I was little. This has led me to work on a wide range of projects on various topics that have expanded my horizons and knowledge.

My experience spans from being part of a research group specialized in network management to working on several videogame projects, building solutions in a digital innovation consultancy and co-founding a startup.

Being part of the Wikiloc’s team gives me the opportunity to work on a successful project where my work has an impact on a large community. At the same time, it allows me to continue learning, designing and exploring new technologies to improve my knowledge and professional career.

Being able to speak five languages has led me to be open-minded, an empathetic listener and an enthusiastic communicator. I love new projects and I believe that team spirit is the key to success.

I’m an outdoor and mountain enthusiast, a Pyrenees lover, and I strongly believe that Wikiloc has had a significant impact on the quality of my life, adding a harmonious work-life balance. I now feel personally committed to sharing this community with the whole world.

Marc López

Since I was little, I've always had a passion for Computer Science, my first steps in programming were with C++. Over the years, I have worked with different technologies such as fullstack developer, also I'm a big enthusiast with AI development and research.

I love going out with my mountain bike to explore new routes, so being part of Wikiloc allows me to improve the application and work with a big community that gives feedback on every change to the platform.

Jens Kristian

Data Engineer (år 1)

I hold a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Aarhus, Denmark.

It fascinates me that we can explore something as big as the surface of the earth from something so small as the screen of our smartphone, and I think GPS is one of the most mind-bending inventions ever made.

I'm a big enthusiast of being outdoors, in particular doing any kind of cycling, hiking or climbing. Being part of the Wikiloc team lets me work with problems that interest me to help develop new features for a great community.

David Martínez

Mobile Engineer (år 1)

Software engineer with a scientific heart. Pursuing my interests in ecological economics and sustainability, I graduated with a Master's degree in Sustainable Technology at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden.

My legs are most happy when pedaling hard up a hill, but I also enjoy running once in a while. I feel at home in the mountains, be it on a bike saddle, hiking or skiing in the Pyrenees, or even challenging myself along a via ferrata!

Wikiloc has always been my go-to platform to search for new trails and bike routes. Working here allows me to combine my love for outdoor activities with my enthusiasm for software engineering but, most of all, it allows me to put my grain of sand for a healthier, happier and more sustainable future.

Xavier Morros

Designer (år 1)

Designer specialized in UX/UI, holding a degree in Graphic Design at Josep Serra i Abella.

When I was 13 years old, I got obsessed with Internet. Trying to understand how it worked, I ended up coding websites until I discovered my real passion: Design. After some years from then, I’ve been working as a UX/UI designer across different studios in Spain and the U.K, crafting many kinds of digital products and websites.

One of my other passions is being in the mountain, in particular rock climbing and alpinism. Working at Wikiloc allows me to mix my passion for the outdoors while working in a project with an inspiring team, creating a positive impact to people’s life.

Jan Berkel

Mobile Engineer (år 1)

I studied computer networking in Germany but have soon become more interested in developing applications running on top of these networks. Wikiloc is one of those applications: it provides many opportunities to spend time outside our over-connected virtual worlds.

My favorite moment is to be in a new place or country, on my bicycle loaded with some camping gear and a tent, with just a vague idea of the destination. I also enjoy learning new words and languages, and the multilingual environment here is a perfect match for that.

Advisors

Manuel Roca

(år 10)

Happy entrepreneur in both personal and professional life. On the professional side, I co-founded atrapalo.com 13 years ago in which I'm the CEO of the company. I also co-founded with my wife a social crowd-funding project, miaportacion.org, to help people at risk of being socially excluded with their basic needs.

However, my biggest project is my BIG family with 7 children to whom I teach values like effort, perseverance, initiative, spirit of service that are so valuable for every aspect of life either personally or professionally although I learn much more from them.

Apart from that, I'm passionate about cycling, skiing and back-country skiing.

Mr. Roca is the sole investor in Wikiloc
