Team

Jordi Ramot

CEO

Software Engineer specialized in the geospatial interoperability field. I graduated with a Master's Degree in Computer Science from Universitat Oberta de Catalunya.

In 2006 I started to work on Wikiloc in my spare time and now we're a growing community of millions of outdoor enthusiasts sharing trails in 190+ countries.

On the personal side I'm a vegetarian and when not in the office I like to be in the outdoors trail running, back-country skiing or mountain biking.

Jose Molina

Lead Engineer

Software engineer with a Degree in Computer Systems Engineering from University of Girona.

Since 2005, my career has always been related to GPS, digital maps and its applications. Before joining Wikiloc, I was part of the Geographic Information Service and Remote Sensing (SIGTE) in the UdG, developing GeoWeb projects using open source technologies, spatial databases and OGC standards.

I've also developed GPS enabled mobile apps for feature phones, location-based services (LBS) and worked as a lecturer of Spatial Databases at the UNIGIS Master.

Wikiloc combines my passion for technology, cartography and enjoying nature discovering new places with my GPS.

Pau Dominkovics

Mobile Engineer

The first computer that came into my home was a x286 and since then I started to love programming so much that I always felt it was only a hobby. Maybe that's why I studied computer science as a second career.

With the arrival of smart-phones my fun multiplied with its possibilities. My first serious test was "Board Games" for Android & iOS and it was a surprising success.

Wikiloc allows me to combine this passion with another great passion, the outdoor activities. Being an user and a creator of the same product is a great pleasure and enriching.

Roger Tallada

Mobile Engineer

Software engineer with a Diploma in Computer Software from the Informatics University of Barcelona. I’m coming back to the software insustry after working as an illustrator for some years, I previously worked as an analyst / developer in a magazine publishing company.

With the appearance of the iPhone and the new wave of touch devices I became involved in software development again by working on personal projects. This allowed me to become familiar with the iOS development environment. I'm having a blast being a full time developer once more and working on apps aimed at users.

Another one of my passions is running, trail running in particular. Working at Wikiloc allows me to mix two of my favorite things, development and outdoor activities.

Ivan Bianchi

Platform Engineer

Software engineer with a Master's degree in Computer Engineering from University of Girona

I'm a Software architecture and a Big-data enthusiast. I am captivated by the opportunities that these architectures can provide while I enjoy the journey of making them come true.

I also like to free my mind playing basketball or trail running while listening to my favourite music.

Computer science has become a passion and at Wikiloc I have the perfect place to overcome daily challenges and expanding my skills while working on a high impact platform for the community.

Kaixi Luo

Platform Engineer

Software engineer with a degree in Computer Engineering from University of Girona. Since I was little, I've always had a passion for Computer Science.

I'm a big systems engineering nerd, having worked with Apache Mesos, Docker and OpenStack on various projects. Nowadays, I obsess over web performance and keeping everything running smoothly.

Wikiloc allows me to work with systems with large amounts of users and traffic where every little change has a big and immediate impact.

Jordi Casadevall

Platform Engineer

Software engineer with a degree in Computer Engineering from University of Girona.

Computer science has fascinated me since I was young. This has led me to work on a wide range of projects of various topics that have expanded my horizons and knowledge.

From being part of a research group specialized in network management to working on several videogame projects, building solutions in a digital innovation consultancy and co-founding a startup.

Being part of the Wikiloc’s team gives me the opportunity to work on a successful project where my work arrives to a large community. At the same time, it allows me to continue learning, designing and exploring new technologies to improve my knowledge and professional career.

Marc Garcia

Wearables Engineer

Software engineer with a Master's degree in Computer Engineering from University of Girona.

My interest for computers started with a Sinclair ZX Spectrum 48K. I’ve been working on different areas related to development, system administration, and broadband networks.

Building products for wearables challenges me to solve complex problems and make them work nicely on limited resources. I’m always thinking about how to improve user experience and minimizing the use of battery, memory and bandwidth.

I feel lucky to be a member of the Wikiloc team and to blend my passions for the outdoors and technology.

Berta Nicolazzi

Communications

My professional career started in the Hospitality Industry. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Hotel Management from Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and enjoyed very much working on Hotel Online Marketing & e-Commerce.

My five languages led me to be open-minded, empathic listener and enthusiastic communicator. I love new projects. Team spirit is the key to success.

I’m an outdoor and mountain passionate, a Pyrenees lover, and I strongly believe that Wikiloc has improved my life, adding quality to my leisure time. I feel now personally committed to share this community within the whole World.

Marc López

Platform Engineer

Software engineer with a degree in Computer Engineering from University of Girona.

Since I was little, I've always had a passion for Computer Science, my first steps on programming were with C++, nowdays I have worked with different technologies as fullstack developer, also I'm a big enthusiast with AI development and research.

I love going out with my mountain bike to explore new routes, so being part of Wikiloc allows me to improve the application and work with a big community that gives feedback on every change to the platform.

Jens Kristian

Data Engineer

I hold a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Aarhus, Denmark.

It fascinates me that we can explore something as big as the surface of the earth from something so small as the screen of our smartphone, and I think GPS is one of the most mind-bending inventions ever made.

I'm a big enthusiast of being outdoors, in particular doing any kind of bicycling, hiking or climbing. Being part of the Wikiloc team lets me work with problems that interest me to help develop new features for a great community.

David Martínez

Mobile Engineer

Software engineer with a scientific heart. Pursuing my interests in ecological economics and sustainability, I graduated with a Master's degree in Sustainable Technology at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Sweden.

My legs are most happy when pedaling hard up a hill, but I also enjoy running once in a while. I feel at home in the mountains, be it on a bike saddle, hiking or skiing in the Pyrenees, or even challenging myself in a via ferrata!

Wikiloc has always been my go-to platform to search for new trails and bike routes. Working here allows me to combine my love for outdoor activities with my enthusiasm for software engineering but, most of all, it allows me to put my grain of sand for a healthier, happier and more sustainable future.

Advisors

Manuel Roca

Happy entrepreneur in both personal and professional life. In the professional side I co-founded atrapalo.com 13 years ago in which I'm the CEO of the company. I also co-founded with my wife a social crowd-funding project, miaportacion.org, to help people under risk of being socially excluded with their basic needs.

But my biggest project is my BIG family with 7 children to whom I teach values like effort, perseverance, initiative, spirit of service that are so valuables for every aspect of life either personally or professionally although I learn much more from them.

Apart from that I'm a passionate of cycling, skiing and back-country skiing.

Mr. Roca is the sole investor in Wikiloc

Eduardo Coca

When I am not hiking, cycling or running in the mountains, I am a venture capital lawyer and advisor to Wikiloc. I have been involved with the team since the very early stages in 2008 and I am currently secretary to the board of directors.

After years of practice at international law firms in London and Madrid, I founded a niche legal practice dealing with venture capital and debt in relation to high growth companies. I work with many leading startups and emerging companies across Spain helping them strategically navigate pivotal corporate and financial moments, including seed and venture financing, acquisitions and other complex corporate transactions.
