José has been a key member of our team at Envato Tuts+ for several years. In the time that I’ve worked with him I’ve come to rely greatly on his comprehensive knowledge of the Ruby language and the Ruby on Rails framework. José leads our coverage of the Ruby ecosystem, using his judgment and connections to the community to plan and produce relevant, cutting-edge content.

It has been a pleasure to work with José. I’ve found him to be diligent, conscientious, and reliable. His own competence has made my job much easier. His skill as a Ruby developer, moreover, continues to amaze me.

José is the colleague every company dreams of: very professional, high values of quality and excellence. Dedicated and entrepreneurial, he always seeks the best opportunities, readily showing initiative and value propositions that elevate his company’s status. José is not only a strong recommendation of mine, I consider him to be a “must have” to any innovative, daring company.
