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.
Co-fundador & CTO
Gerard Artés (Co-founder & CTO) is the senior of the team, a serial entrepreneur who runs the technological destinies of Homuork. He can create anything we dream of. He began his programming career 10 years ago, founding his own software company – still running and backing up most of Homuork’s major challenges. Besides being extremely reactive and talented – and patient as can be – he allows Homuork to address its customers’ technological needs, at any time. When he’s not busy, he’ll be home playing with his daughter while the phone rings.
Creative & filmmaker
Alba Cros (Creative). Raised in Lleida, she left her hometown to study Audiovisual Communication in Barcelona pursuing her dream of being all day behind the scenes. Besides having a great taste for design and a weird one for sweaters, she’s an atomic fast-learner and our audiovisual expert, able to transform any message or lesson into a visual and integrative experience. In her spare time, she might probably be working too, either producing video-clips, writing a script or hosting a music festival.
Cuquimaker & FX master
Carla Temprano (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.
Chief of colours
Elsa Reig (Producer) comes from Palau-Solità every morning with a jolly face – quite oddly for someone who wakes up so early -, and we are deeply grateful for it. Out of the Pompeu Fabra University, she got both a degree in Audiovisual Communication and a great sense of composition, the latter being currently fine-tuned between her hours at Homuork and a Graphic Design Master’s Degree at BAU from which she is off in the late-evening… So don’t bother trying to find her in her spare time: she may be travelling and she’ll tell you at Instagram
Communications manager & music expert
Victor Solvas (Scriptwriter & Communications Manager) is Homuork’s resident writer. Do you need some copy written? That’ll be a job for Victor. What about a course script? Call Victor. Or a blog post? Victor. You’ve got it: he spent part of his university years completing a degree in Journalism and has since worked for magazines, newspapers and press offices before arriving at Homuork. He’s also a historian – even though he tries not to say that out loud – and he has a weird taste in music. He’s adorable any time after 12 midday.
Translator & yogi
Grace Chinn is our translator, proofreader and scriptwriter of international projects. She is rigorous to the nth degree and is diligent like no other: you’ll overhear her shouting Eureka! every time she finds an error that needs correcting. She hails from Scotland with an undergraduate degree in Sociology and a Masters in Translation. She’s a fantastic cook, vegetarian, but fantastic nonetheless, and when she’s not at Homuork, you’ll find her surfing on some beach in the Basque Country – the place where she tends to escape
Viral videos hunter & photoshop magician
Ángela Espejo (Producer) 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.
María Castellví (Project manager) llegó a Homuork como coordinadora de proyectos, pero se le ocurrió demostrar sus habilidades en la edición de vídeos y en la redacción de guiones. Desde entonces, es la imprescindible mujer orquestra de la empresa. Un papel en el que tiene experiencia demostrable. Por si no tuviera bastante afinando los instrumentos de Homuork, en su tiempo libre organiza el festival audiovisual Reteena y ejerce de profesora de cultura audiovisual para adolescentes.
Marketing master and commander
All Star LinkedIn Profile. Marcos Gallo (Digital Marketing) is the SEO guy at Homuork, so there’s really no better way to define him than with these keywords. What better endorsement for a social network professional? His first initiative was to circulate a list of terms for us to repeat, and since then all communication at Homuork has been limited to these 30 words. He arrived from Burgos with his electric guitar and a handful of rock songs, but his strumming has chilled out over time and he’s now a cult singer in the bars of Barcelona
Trots (Pet) is our visionary, although his communication skills are not great, he is the brain of Homuork. Truth is, he doesn’t help much, but he’s a lot of fun, warns us of potential intruders and looks at us as if we were doing something truly important.
