Interview with Raúl Romero, from Madrid, Spain and telecommunications engineer.
Thanks to teleworking, he has come to Alicante to enjoy a few months and work from our coworking.
He came to ULab because someone recommended to him
Our spaces to work and that way he could separate work and personal life.
Would you like to learn more about his story?
Q: For those who don’t know you at ULab, who are you?
A: I am Raúl Romero. I was born in Madrid 36 years ago although I have lived most of my life a little further south, in Getafe .
Q: What do you do?
A: I am a Telecommunications Engineer, specialized in connectivity and networks.
Q: What is your role in the company (if you are not self-employed)?
I am currently working as a freelancer for SAP Germany, supporting the HANA Enterprise Cloud team on routing/switching issues.
Q: Nowadays, we live in a very competitive world. What do you think is the trait that differentiates you from the rest?
A: I like to repay the trust they place in me with hard work and effort. I love to learn new things and help as much as possible.
Q: How did you end up at ULab?
A: By teleworking all the time, I was able to do it from wherever I wanted and also I wanted to spend a few months away from Madrid. Alicante was one of my favorite choices and I quickly found a flat to share, so I didn’t give it a second thought.
I also knew I wanted to join a coworking company and considering everyone said good things about ULab, I came here.
Q: What does ULab offer you as a work place?
A: A more defined schedule and routine. Not using my home as an office
also helps a lot when it comes to separating my professional and personal life.
Q: How do you feel working at ULab with this new normality?
I feel very comfortable. I think that the measures that are being taken are the right ones.
I am also convinced that by being responsible we will soon return to the old normality.
Q: Small test, what book would you like to recommend? And a movie?
“Ikigai” by Hector Garcia and Frances Miralles.
Miralles is the last book I read and I found it very interesting.I recommend it. Regarding the movie, it is not very original to recommend the last one that has won the Oscar, but “Nomadland” is a gem.
Q: Let’s finish with your favorite series.
It’s hard to choose one, I’ve seen so many, but if I had to choose? “The Office.”
