5 features of the homuork Team
WE CARE ABOUT THE IMPACT
OF WHAT WE DO. EVERY DAY.
AMBITIOUS AND INCLUSIVE.
WE HAVE A LOT OF IDEAS,
EVEN SOME WHACKY ONES.
SOMETIMES WE GO TO BEYONCÉ'S CONCERTS.
AND WE OFTEN BAKE CAKES.
OUR MONDAYS ARE NOT
AN ABSOLUTE TRAGEDY.
Alexandra Maratchi (Co-founder & CEO) was born and raised in Barcelona, but as soon as she could she started traveling and working all around Europe in marketing and sales in many major multinational companies. She’s a proud alumni of the Barcelonian Business School ESADE and holds a CEMS Master from HEC Paris. When she’s not thinking about how to further develop Homuork (which hardly happens), you’ll find her jogging or attending concerts, especially if Jamie Cullum is playing. She’s crazy good at imitating voices and accents.
Xavier Orri Badia
Co-founder & COO
Xavier Orri Badia.
Xavier Orri (Co-founder & COO) also grew up in Barcelona, a city he loves quitting from time to time only so that he can come back and enjoy it again. He holds a degree in Politics, one of his major vices; and a degree in Journalism that led him to Paris as a news correspondent for many years. He’s the creative mind of the team, a design obsessive who enjoys using words, forms and colors to affect and improve user’s experience in any field. If he’s not in front of his Mac, you’ll find him cooking with friends or reading some boring article.
Senior Project Manager & Director of Learning Production
Alba Agulló Senior Project Manager & Director of Learning Production), lives with the Homuork’s project map installed in her brain. If we played a company’s trivia, she would most certainly win. Her work consists in playing all the keys of the board: she knows with which clients we work, which courses are being run and which ones are yet to come, and she makes sure that everything goes smoothly as planned. When she needs to disconnect, she finds refuge in her well-cared-for garden.
Video artist & Producer
Carla Temprano (Video artist & Producer) is the barcelonian member of the Media Team. She can edit videos or bake cakes with equally outstanding talent. Almost every single picture of sweets you may find in our social media is of her making. She graduated in Audiovisual Communication (UPC) and she is the geek of our gang. At meetings, her ideas usually require a second explanation for nobody really understands what she refers to… but hey, give her a new app and a couple of undisturbed hours and she’ll work out some magic.
Ángela Espejo (Creative Director) is from Almería. She came to Homuork to be in charge of video editing but on her first day she made the mistake of showing off her writing talents. In her downtime, you’ll find her listening to music, watching a TV series or getting her creative kicks from photography and illustration. At the weekends she works in the wedding department of the BBC (weddings, baptisms and communions) and in 10 years’ time she sees herself filming her own music videos.
Video artist & Producer
Maria Bea (Video artist & Producer) has earned the title of “Homuork’s official strory-teller”. Her tales about rescues of pigeons with suicidal tendencies and other situations of extreme survival in remote corners of the world have strongly engaged her audience. She started studying photography, but she realized soon enough that picture in motion was her thing. She co-directed her fist documentary and hopes it won’t be the last. At Homuork, she is in charge of editing the videos.
Instructional Designer & Scriptwriter
Bea Solivellas (Instructional Designer & Scriptwriter) switched her dear hometown Mallorca for Barcelona to write, and we know in good faith that she is succeeding. Ever since she joined Homuork, she lives buried in a mountain of scripts of which she steadily takes care without losing her smile. She is so addicted to drumming on the keyboard that she still finds time to write her own stories.
eLearning Content Developer
Sofía Prats (eLearning Content Developer) is the expert of our courses’ platform. She lives in an alphabet soup from which the acronyms LMS, SCROM and MOOC are recurrently formed. When in her recreational time, you may find her reading sci-fi books or the ancient Greeks, and she resorts to drawing to unleash to her artistic side.
Learning Designer & Project Manager
Ana Calzada (Learning Designer & Project Manager) was born in Tarragona, raised in Salamanca and has lived in Málaga, Madrid, Barcelona and London. Graduated in Journalism, her explorative spirit has made of her an authentic all-round professional, being trained in diverse fields such as Creative Literature, Political Science or Web Design, and working in different sectors linked to education, consultancy and digital transformation. At Homuork, she is in charge of managing, designing and structuring learning projects.
Isabel Montero (Marketing manager) is an expert in corporate communications and Inbound Marketing, a methodology of which she confesses to be a fan. Her secret weapons are Buyer Personas and process automation. Her other talents include pro-level public speaking and illustration. At Homuork she has joined us to help us coordinate all marketing actions and align them with the mission, vision and values of the brand. Her dream would be to have an impact on her community’s female leadership through her work.
Kelly J. Ford
Instructional Designer & Sales Executive
Kelly J. Ford.
Kelly (Instructional Designer & Sales Executive) was meant to be an exotic animal veterinarian, but on the way, she came across the irresistible Salamanca. There she studied Translation and Interpreting and, shortly afterwards, was awarded a scholarship to study the ICEX’s MBA. Her international vocation, along with her desire for adventure, led her to work for a year in Bombay - from where she left without getting a tattoo in Hindi! At Homuork, she has one foot in Production, designing pedagogical itineraries for our courses, and another foot
Pumba (HR Manager) is our recruitment manager. He decides who joins the Homuork family thanks to his 'nose' for talent. In addition to his recruiting skills, he is also a great motivator: he only needs to come in through the door prancing around to make everyone's day.
Josep (Business Developer) es un economista no practicante apasionado por la formación. Ha coliderado el diseño de la Nespresso Academy a nivel internacional y también tiene experiencia en marketing, ventas y formación en multinacionales de varios sectores. Ha viajado y vivido por medio mundo, pero siempre vuelve a Barcelona. En Homuork, ayuda a empresas e instituciones a alcanzar la transformación social y digital. Ah, y aparte de escuchar podcasts de física cuántica, práctica Pitch & Putt. Googlealo como nosotr_s para descubrir qué es ;)
