Camilo Acosta Restrepo – Band Manager
Camilo came to Gorilla Logic after years of experience in Agile development. He started as a Java developer and has worked with clients in the US and Colombia. His passion for Agile has guided him through most of his career as it motivated him to become a Scrum Master, work in Scaled Agile environments, and regularly partake in new learning and certification opportunities. After hearing the buzz in Colombia about Gorilla Logic, Camilo knew joining the company would be a great career opportunity and allow him to continue to work with US-based companies—something he truly enjoys.
