Hello πŸ‘‹ I'm Jorge Coca

Welcome to my personal website! Here, you will find a random collection of thoughts and ideas about software development, engineering leadership, and... well, to be honest, anything that crosses my mind that is worth capturing on a blog post.

A little bit more about me:

  • I am empathetic, easy going, fun to be with, rarely stressed, and I am working really hard on improving my dad jokes! πŸ‘‹
  • I was born in Madrid, Spain πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Έ and since 2011 I live in the United States, in Chicago πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
  • I am married to the most wonderful woman in the world, I have a wonderful son, and a dog named Guiness 🐢
  • 🎸 I love music, and my house is full of instruments: guitars, bass, ukuleles, cellos... back in my college days in Madrid I played bass in a band, and as a fun fact, I had the pleasure to play in front of ~1000 people (although only about 20 were paying attention 🀣)
  • Since 2020, I am the Head of Engineering πŸ¦„ at Very Good Ventures, a software agency focused on Flutter development. We do more with the resources available, reach any screen from a single codebase, and implement best practices for long-term growth.
  • From 2016 until 2020 I worked at BMW as a Senior Architect, where I had the privilege to lead the Android team globally, and be a founding member of the Flutter practice.
  • I spent a few years as a Senior Engineer at a consulting company in Chicago named SPR. During these years, I had the pleasure to work with the mobile teams at Groupon, Orbitz (now Expedia), and Enova.
