Albert Juhé Lluveras

Front-End Developer | JavaScript Engineer | Volunteer Firefox Developer

I am a multilingual Front-End Developer and JavaScript engineer with more than five years of work experience and ability to work hard in a team or by myself. I am passionate about Internet, new web technologies and computer science in general.

The IT areas I like most are web and web-apps development. Specially I am really interested in how new web technologies (HTML5, CSS3, WebGL, WebRTC...) are making the web a fully capable platform to run any kind of application and are blurring the line between small and big devices such as smartphones and desktop computers.

Other topics that interest me are user interaction, machine learning and computer graphics.

I am permanently eager to learn new things and discover facts I did not know yet. I like collaborating in a big community and to do my bit to improve any project I am involved in.

Recommendations and mentions

Albert Juhé Lluveras
Albert put all my reservations and opposition for having interns to shame.
I was the biggest opponent for hiring an intern to my tech team at Bownty, but was persuaded by my colleagues to try it just once anyway.
Albert amazed me with his can-do attitude, his aptitude for just getting things done, and handing even senior-level complex tasks on time, and well tested.
I was so happy with Alberts performance, that once his internship was over, we hired him on spot as full time employee, where he continued to shine.
I don't know how to give a stronger recommendation than this, but if you ever get the chance to hire Albert as a frontend developer, don't miss out - he will surely exceed any and all expectations.

Christian Winther, CTO at Bownty & CakePHP core developer

Albert Juhé Lluveras
Albert es muy responsable y eficiente.
Es muy buen desarrollador pero además puede atender con eficacia a los clientes en reuniones presenciales o bien virtuales.
Tiene una actitud proactiva frente a todos los proyectos y siempre busca la mejor solución, sea cual sea el entorno de programación.
Sin duda recomiendo a Albert. Si tienes la suerte de contar con él o tenerlo como compañero podrás sentirte afortunado.
