Ricardo is a lot of fun to work with. He setup and maintained all of our release infrastructure and automation systems running on Jenkins. He was the go to person for systems and ops. We worked together creating installation packages for our solution. He's the kind of person who looks at a problem and doesn't back out until he gets the job done. I would love to work with Ricardo again and would highly recommend him to any team.
Ricardo is an IT/OPs jack-of-all-trades that helped us with too many
things to list here, including product installer, cloud deployment,
build and IT systems. With product requirements frequently changing at late notice he did an excellent job to get things done
with great quality and on time. Ricardo is one of those guys
who always seem to be available on IM which comes real handy when critical systems experience hiccups and need
to be looked at odd hours.
Ricardo is an intelligent, calm, and thoughtful engineer - someone who can see the big picture in a challenging work environment.
Server is down? A couple of other fires? This is not a problem for Ricardo to deal with. He is crazy quick around unix sessions, knows his software and tools to resolve such problems.
If you would like a complex build process that builds on five different OS platforms, generates secure keys, remotely and automatically pre-install software from master servers - and a database web application to track it all - Ricardo has done this.
Ricardo is a technically strong engineer with deep understanding of virtualization, networking, server and application administration. At SnapLogic, we depend on these skills of Ricardo to both setup and maintain our cloud service infrastructure, our build/release processes and our QA/development infrastructure. He carried this heavy responsibility with a smile and worked startup hours to make things happen. In addition, his versatility allowed him to play various engineering roles in the organization. I believe Ricardo would be a valuable member of any team with his skills, experience and can do spirit.
Ricardo is a dedicated ops engineer who can get things done quickly and reliably. Among many other projects, Ricardo helped me deploy several cloud-based Hadoop installations for testing and development in short order.
Ricardo is top notch lead/engineer who can work in a variety of different roles from QA automation, operations, and IT. He's a lot of fun to both work with and be around.
As a QA engineer, I worked with Ricardo on multiple projects and initiatives. I found him to be extremely approachable and willing to answer any of my technical questions. Unlike many engineers that "hold" their knowledge he was always happy to share. His knowledge of programming languages, systems and automation was crucial in everything we did. I would love to work with Ricardo again in the future.
Ricardo was a very productive and helpful member of the QA team at HyTrust. He was extremely knowledgeble about about VMWare virtual infrastructure which allowed him to test the HyTrust product very effectively. Ricardo was a pleasure to work with and I recommend him highly.
Ricardo was a pleasure to work with and always showed a positive attitude and willingness to adapt and be flexible to the business needs. We worked with a product which has very complex architecture and is oriented for cloud or on premise solutions. Ricardo is very strong technical Lead of QA team. He not only asked excellent questions, but offered smart and efficient solutions and was able to quickly grasp concepts and get right down to the details that separate great products from mediocre ones. I would gladly work with him again
Ricardo was my "go-to guy" on the QA team for setting up new test environments and setting up new interoperability testing with other products in our customers' environments. He worked well with the development engineers on reproducing bugs and verifying fixes. He was always willing to help out cross-organizationally, for example, helping marketing set up demos. Whenever I gave him technical tasks and time frames, I knew I could count on Ricardo to get the job done. Ricardo also was willing to put in the extra time and effort when needed to meet the release schedules. Ricardo has a solid understanding of system admin, networking and QA.
Ricardo is always willing to help and with his 'can do' attitude he would make a remarkable addition to any team. He is a quick learner and hands-on. No task is too daunting.
