In case you were wondering (and of course we all were ;-)): no, Sergio Mac Intosh is in no way related to the founders of the Apple computers his last name refers to. But he does share the same entrepreneurial drive and focus on the end-user as Steve Jobs, Steve Wozniak en Ronald Wayne did. Sounds promising! So let’s get to know him a little bit better.
Tell us more about our new salesforce developer:
‘I’m 27 years old and have been working with Salesforce for eight years now. I studied Business & IT Management, which was a dual study that combines theory with fieldwork. I’ve been working as a freelancer for several years, but the COVID-19 situation caused a disruption in that line of work, so I reached out for a steady part time job. I’m combining that with my own start up.’
What will you be doing at Appsolutely?
‘I will be building lots of different solutions on the Salesforce Platform. I’m very keen on app development, which is very well established within Appsolutely, so I‘m leaning more towards that direction. I already have a lot of experience with development on the customer side, regarding implementation and customizing, and I would love to learn more about the other side.’
Why did you choose Appsolutely?
‘Mainly because of my ambitions in app development. There aren’t a lot of companies that focus on that field of expertise, let alone in the way Appsolutely does. It’s quite unique how this company develops apps for different types of customers. So there’s a lot of experience to be found here, and a lot of colleagues whom I can learn from.’
What is your passion? Also outside of work?
‘Well, workwise: I aim to be a successful entrepreneur. Building a brand and/or company entails a lot of challenges and requires different skill sets and knowledge. But first, I want to become a top-notch developer and gain all the knowledge I can find. Besides work I’m most passioned about travelling. Too bad the COVID-19 outbreak doesn’t enhance this passion.’
What makes your day great workwise?
‘For me, it’s about two things. First of all, making the end users happy by making their work easier and faster. Second, I want to learn new things. For instance about new technologies or methods: Basically everything that enhances performance or eliminates unnecessary complexity.’
What will be a challenge?
‘Well, at the moment I’m working on a project that offers a nice challenge. It holds some elements I’m not very experienced with yet and therefore they were all on my list of ‘wannahaves’. Another part of the challenge is the fact that I’ll have to meet Appsolutely’s standards while working on this. And those standards are high, so bring it on.’
How would you define your personality?
‘I’m quite easy-going, polite and humble! I’m also quite competitive, not only regarding games and sports, but I’m also driven to reach my goals. Besides that, I’m very disciplined, focussed on results and I have a strong sense of purpose.’
