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.
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.
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.
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.
Alberto Peñalba (Marketing Manager) is the person making sure that you land on this page and get to know us. Homuork’s marketing strategy is his “work in progress”. The next webinar or the next blog post is always on his mind… As soon as he leaves the office he goes get his muscles smashed in a torture called “CrossFit”.
Documentalist & Pigeon savior
Maria Bea (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.
Alba Agulló (Project Manager), 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.
Bea Solivellas (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, grew up in Salamanca and has lived in Malaga, Madrid, Barcelona and London. With a degree in Journalism and an intrepid spirit she is a professional multitasker. She is trained in areas such as creative literature, political science and web design. Has worked in various fields related to training, consulting and digital transformation. At Homuork she is responsible for the management, design and structure for learning projects.
The power of the stories was one of the reasons that prompted Clara Renau (Producer) to study Audiovisual Communication. After graduating from UPF, she co-directed her own TV series (‘5 minuts tard’) and continued her studies with a Master's in Communication and Gender at the University of Sussex. At Homuork she is in charge of video editing.
Rafael Riera (Commercial Director) defines himself as a positive, curious person who loves new challenges. He is the official consultant at Homuork, supporting organizations in their processes of digitization and implementation of their e-learning programs. Whenever he has the chance, he enjoys traveling and being in contact with nature.
Kelly J. Ford
Instructional Designer & Sales Executive
Kelly J. Ford.
Kelly (Instructional Designer & Sales Executive) was planning to be a vet specializing in exotic animals, but along the way she came across the irresistible city of Salamanca, where she studied Translation and Interpreting, shortly afterwards winning a scholarship to study an MBA at ICEX. Her international vocation, along with her love of adventure, led her to work for a year in Mumbai. At homuork she splits her responsibilities between the production side, designing educational curricula for our courses, and business development.
Pumba (HR Manager) is our responsible for hiring. He decides who joins the Homuork family thanks to his talent-detecting nose. Apart from his recruitment abilities, he stands out for being a great motivator: For him it's enough to come jumping through the door to brighten up our day.
