About Me

Who Am I?

Hi, I'm Nicolas Yuste. I'm passionate of mobile platforms and mobile devices. I love making software people can touch with their fingers. I've been developing and leading teams who developed Mobile Applications for more than 7 years. I am currently living in León (Spain) and working remotely for the company I worked during the last 5 years: Groupon.

In addition to coding, I am very active, I like the outdoors, music, going to the cinema, flying my drone and playing soccer.

What I do?

Here are some of my expertise

Innovative Ideas

We tend to rewrite the histories of technological innovation, making myths about a guy who had a great idea that changed the world. In reality, though, innovation isn’t the goal; it’s everything that gets you there.

Mobile Applications

Soon there will be 2 kinds of people. Those who use computers, and those who use Mobile phones.

Website

A good webstie resonates with your audience, has a value proposition, calls visitors to action, is optimized for multiple devices, and is always changing to adapt to new design trends.

End to end solutions

Simple, easy to change, easy to develop.

Education

Education

Ingeniero en Informática por la Universidad de León.

I finished my degree 2012. I learned everything I could and I met a lot of interesting people during this time. I always had to learn Mobile Development on my own because at that time, it was not common to teach iOS development in the Spanish universities yet.

Beca Erasmus para un año completo en Suecia.

I lived in Halmstad (Sweden) for one full academic year. It was a great experience where I could meet a lot of people and improve my English, something not so easy to do in Spain.

It was in 2010 when I needed the Diploma to be allowed to request my Erasmus scholarship to Sweden. My English has improved a lot more since then, specially after leaving 5 years in the United States.

Experience

Work Experience

iOS Developer at Blink by Groupon
Madrid: Sept 2012 - Oct 2013

Right out of college I found this job, I was responsible of:

  • Manage the development of the Blink by Groupon iOS App.
  • Guided the troubleshooting and debugging of the app before its release.
  • Interact with the Blink by Groupon Design team to lead the design of the iOS app.
  • Ensure ease of functionality and the quality of the app.

iOS Engineer at Groupon
Seattle: Oct 2013 - Mar 2016

I moved to the United States for this role. I joined the Global Travel Technology team in Seattle where I helped to create a lot of exciting new travel products.

I was one of the founding members of the Groupon Getaways iOS Mobile Team. I was responsible for initial architecture and organization of the "Groupon Getaways app". After a successful release I started to work in the main Groupon app while maintaining the Getaways App. I expended a few months collaborating a lot with the main Mobile Team in order to ship exciting Getaways features in the main Groupon app.

Mobile Engineer Manager at Groupon
Seattle: Mar 2016 - May 2018

After an exiting time in the Groupon Getaways team I moved to the Core Groupon Team. This team was in charge of both iOS and Android Groupon apps which are used by millions of users.

I joined this team and also got promoted into a manager role. I started to manage a team of ten Android engineers. Me and my team were taking care of some of the most important parts of the app, Checkout pages, Deal Detail Pages and the whole Groupon+ experience are a few of the examples we were actively working on.

Senior Software Engineer at Groupon
León: May 2018 - Now

Después de casi cinco años en los Estados Unidos decidí volverme a vivir a España. Continuar en mi antiguo puesto, como manager de 10 personas trabajando de forma remota y con tantas hora de diferencia hubiera sido difícil. Ahora he vuelto a una posición de ingeniero dentro del Mobile Team de Groupon como Senior Engineer. Participó en grandes proyectos con mucho impacto para la compañia en las dos plataformas: iOS y Android.

Estoy trabajando de forma remota desde mi casa en León y viajo a los Estados Unidos un par de veces al año para ver al equipo.

Independent Engineer

Además de mi trabajo en Groupon también tengo algún que otro proyecto personal. Una de mis recientes colaboraciones ha sido con TEDxLeón. Desarrolle una app para la ultima edición del evento a través de la cual los espectadores podían interactuar en vivo con algunos de los interlocutores.
