Nathalia Ortega

Nathalia is one of our skilled QA test engineers at Gorilla Logic. When Nathalia is not spending time at Gorilla Logic she is trying new foods and restaurants, traveling with her friends and family, playing with her puppy Teo or reading a good book.

Where’s your hometown? – I live in Mata de Platano, San Jose, Costa Rica. A rural area close to the city. I’ve lived here since I was born.

Favorite place you’ve traveled to? – Tokyo. It is a beautiful city full of culture and traditions. There you can see a perfect balance between urban and nature.

Best advice you have received personally or professionally? – “Be honest and be kind, everyone has their own battles”.

What is your guilty pleasure TV show? – I would say Game of Thrones. I can’t wait for the next season to begin! Also, currently I am into Stranger Things. It is different and addictive.  

What made you want to work at Gorilla Logic? – The recruiting process and confidence they put in you even before your first day. The recruiter showed a lot of passion and love for the company, and she made the whole process fun and exciting.

What is your personal motto? – It is not actually a motto, but a quote I like to remember.  “Words are pale shadows of forgotten names. As names have power, words have power. Words can light fires in the minds of men. Words can wring tears from the hardest hearts.” – Patrick Rothfuss, The Name of the Wind.

Best advice when heading into an interview? – Always be yourself.
