Luis Montealegre Software engineer


Austin TX

I'm a software engineer and a programming instructor. I like to be surrounded by people who push me to do the best work of my career as well as people I can nurture and support.

I have over 15 years of experience in tech, both in Mexico and the United States, and I’m looking forward to be part of a team that values work-life balance, TDD, pair programming and code reviews.
