Marcos Sandoval Calvo — Mobile Practice Lead
Marcos is one of our incredible Mobile Practice Leads here at Gorilla Logic. He has been working in Development for just over 8 years. Early in his career, Marcos discovered that his love of people also fed a passion for designing and developing applications for mobile users. Marcos honed his skills as a developer of web, hybrid, and native mobile applications for a variety of companies, and as a leader of developer teams. Outside of work, Marcos spends much of his time with family and friends and making new friends on his journeys around the world. We are so happy to have him as a part of the Band!
