Mismo Employee Spotlight: Marjorie Valverde Fallas

The Mismo team is unique, you’ll hear that a lot. And not just because we’ve been doing the remote thing all along, but because we’ve always been about people. That’s what makes us, us. We’re built on people who want to be a part of something bigger. We’re a unique experience for tech companies looking to grow at scale and for team members who want to be a part of the future of innovative tech. Our team is a family. We look out for each other and understand our team members and their value. So much so, we want you to get to know them, too.

I am 25 years old. I am from San Marcos, Tarrazú, Costa Rica but am currently living in San Pedro de Montes de Oca, Costa Rica. I love doing yoga and going for rides on my motorcycle. 

What made you choose Mismo?
I had heard very good things about the company, so I gave it a try and then decided to stay since I’ve found it a very good place to work. We have good benefits such as schedule flexibility, which allows me to also focus on things I like to do outside of work. 

What projects are you working on?
I am working with Modern Health.

What has been your favorite project to work on?
Actually, my current project, because it has very good organization within different teams and managers. 

What do you love most about your job?
I love being able to learn about different technologies and tools in the same place. It also allows me to decide the areas that I want to focus on and learn more. I love the work environment and the relationship with co-workers, they are always willing to help and I have made good friends here.

Tell us a bit about yourself

I’ve been with Mismo for more than 6 years now and for almost 2 of them, I’ve been an engineering lead. I love playing and watching soccer, playing the guitar and drums (newbie), and staying up-to-date with the latest trends in IT, development, and architecture in general.

What made you choose Mismo?

From the first interview I had, I loved the people, the office and the vibe I got from everyone. I knew right then I wanted to work here.

I also noticed that the tech stack they were using back then was very innovative. I wanted to learn new things as well and Mismo seemed like the right choice for this.

The quality of the people here is amazing, and I have made some life-long friendships with people and we’ve shared our best life experiences with one another (weddings, babies and more).

What projects are you working on?

Revinate, for more than 5 years now.

What has been your favorite project to work on?

Revinate!

What do you love most about your job?

I love that I have been growing since I joined, both personally and professionally. The way that Mismo relates to its clients it’s pretty unusual, in the sense that we actually form part of our clients teams, instead of just being contractors or outsiders. It’s encouraged and common for us to be able to make architectural and technical decisions, and get involved with them in solving their various and exciting challenges. I keep learning and looking for ways to improve things and having the empowerment from Mismo and Revinate to apply them is awesome and motivating.
