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.
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
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.
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.
Storyteller & nachos lover
David Moragas (Producer) comes from a village in Reus, lives in Barcelona and soon will be leaving to the US to become a Hollywood scriptwriter. It sounds crazy, but not that much if he’s the one telling you. He’s enthusiastic, creative, sometimes brilliant and always eager to learn. At Homuork, he makes amazing videos with minimalist taste, uses PowerPoint like demons do and brings tons of energy every morning. At home he becomes a writer and a music composer. He swears he sleeps a lot, but we don’t believe him.
Alberto Peñalba (Digital Marketing) 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.
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
Edu Presegué (Inside Sales) seems to have been born with a phone on his ear. From this cyborg extension, he is constantly negotiating with potential clients. He unfolds the Homuork’s course catalogue and finds the best-suiting options for each interlocutor with a natural flair, coming up with solutions to adapt our offer and closing new deals. He only puts his iPhone aside to travel or to train for the next 10-kilometer race.
Colette Fuentes (producer) finished her degree at the University with a passion for digital creation, and she has happily found a space in which to develop her graphic design and video editing skills at Homuork. She is a vegan, a self-declared Harry Potter and Game of Thrones fanatic, and likes trying herself in all kinds of sports. She’s done swimming, horse riding and dancing, and her next milestone is… Rugby! If she ever goes missing, try finding her in England, where she might be improving her tackle.
Communication manager & Scriptwriter
Laura Valls (Communication Manager & Scriptwriter) is press relations manager and scriptwriter at Homuork. She studied Journalism at the UAB, and has previously worked at RAC1 Radio and at the ESADE Business School Marketing Department, among others. She is a vegetarian, and claims to be an unconditional fan of avocados. In her leisure time, she tries to travel as much as she can; she enjoys cinema and writing songs with her music band. We may see them live soon in one of the Radio 3 concerts… stay tuned!
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.
