This is the crew that makes Plastic SCM possible
Chief Engineering Officer @ Founder
Pablo is the founder of Codice and the lead of software engineering.
When not designing new features or coding server-based obscurities, you can find him blogging and writing about all things version control.
He used to be an associate professor at the University of Burgos (UBU), teaching project management to 4th year Computer Engineering students. He's also a frequent speaker and blogger.
Pablo loves motorcycles, especially Kawasaki, and even more if they were built back in the 90’s (ZXR power), but he's getting used to smoking Aprilia's too.
A long-term contributor to the project, Daniel was the first employee to join Codice. He owns the record in number of check-ins to the Plastic repository. He’s worked on every single area of Plastic, but will probably tell you he doesn’t remember it. :-P
He’s an expert on GUIs and plugins (Visual Studio, Eclipse, and so on).
He’s also the guy leading the WebUI development. Dani is a professional guitar player and likes scuba diving, too.
Borja is one of our most experienced engineers. He knows the entire system in detail, from the GUI to the most obscure command to the server functionality. He’s the go-to guy when you need info about Plastic, but he’s always very, very busy.
He loves driving fast, scuba diving, and is probably one of the few engineers on earth who knows everything about merging! He has a patent on it and has written our mergetool himself.
Rubén de Alba
Rubén de Alba
A hard-core Plastic hacker, Rubén knows everything about the server, the replication system, database backends, importers, and well … EVERYTHING!
He leads the core changes for Plastic SCM and knows a lot about Git, Mercurial, Subversion, and Perforce. Ask him tough questions and he’ll answer you, piece of cake.
Rubén got his degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Salamanca.
Rubén loves swimming, biking, learning to play electric guitar and hanging out with friends.
Jesús M. is one of the core team members. He joined as a junior eons ago and he has worked on almost every area since then. From importers to the latest Unity plugin, security to GitSync... there's no area Jesús M can't hack.
Jesús plays soccer, likes cars, loves telling near to true stories and he is also learning to play electric guitar.
Support Master @ Ambassador
Manu is in charge of the Customer Support area. He deals with complex setups, policies and working methodologies on a daily basis.
He's the one behind the light fast answers everyone using Plastic SCM is used to, and it is really a daunting task.
Prior to taking full responsibility of support, he worked as software engineer. He has been in charge of load testing for quite some time, so if you want to know how well Plastic compares to SVN or P4 under a really heavy load, he’s your guy. Manu is a Mac user (pretending to be hardcore, isn’t really :-P). He took lead on several parts of the 4.0 code, including dealing with huge repositories.
When not hooked to his iPhone, skate-boarding or learning Korean, he likes to play with Arduino GPS devices, mountain biking and playing tennis.
Sara joined Codice with a mission: turn the company into financially well-managed one. Sara has broad experience with financial matters and worked for different companies in the UK before joining our team. She has a degree in Business Administration and has worked for Ernst & Young as an auditor and for Hewlett-Packard and Accenture, always in Accounting & Finance roles.
When she is not working, you can find her shopping, hanging out with her family, or hiking in the mountains.
Violeta started as a junior programmer and quickly proved her value, becoming one of the strongest coders in the team.
She has been in charge of most of the SemanticMerge evolution and also the native Plastic SCM GUIs for Mac and Linux. As a key team member she's able to work on a wide range of areas: from merge technology to the server, from GUI to network programming.
Violeta got her degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Valladolid.
In her spare time, she enjoys hanging out with friends and outdoor activities (and shopping!).
Kiko, as we all know him, is in charge of the company’s strategy, growth, profitability, and day-to-day operations.
He has more than 20 years’ experience, including leadership positions in sales and marketing at Microsoft, Sun Microsystems, and HP. He enjoys connecting with and listening to our customers and partners. When a client has a question or concern about our product, he gets involved in finding a solution for them, even in complex matters such as a DVCS! His passion is to serve our customers and partners better than anyone else in the market.
Kiko is a Telecommunications Engineer for the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid and has a management grade in the IESE, Madrid (PDD-1998). Kiko loves diving, playing golf, and traveling to new cultures.
Míryam worked 4 years developing financial software prior to join to Codice. She's our SQL expert and she's getting better and better on complex Plastic SCM parts such as transactions or security.
Míryam obtained her degree in Computing Engineering at the Burgos University. She used to be a basketball player and she likes science and trekking.
Carlos joined the product experts team back in 2013. He returned from the the cold fields of Iceland to his homeland to become one of the stars of the support team.
As a Plastic SCM product expert he helps teams moving from other version controls on a daily basis, decides strategies, train developers, answer questions, run benchmarks ... in a word: he solves problems.
Carlos is a Telecomunications Engineer from the University of Valladolid and he loves football and rock music.
Fernando is our Web designer come from the green lands of Ireland. He's our UX and UI design shaman, our Front-end sorcerer although he prefers to be called "CSSamurai".

After an intense internship at Codice during spring and part of summer 2015, Sergio joined the ranks of Plastic SCM as junior developer.
Sergio already contributed code to the Plastic REST API, the HAL Slack bot that controls our CI system, migrated our internal main server to "new" hardware, coded an Android repo browser and hacked wifi-direct for the upcoming Plastic version.

Angel has University Degree in Computer Science for the Polytechnic University of Madrid. Angel loves playing chess, card magic and travelling.
Jordi Mon Companys
Jordi Mon Companys
Product Marketing Manager
Jordi is the last one to join our team. He has marketed many kinds of software products and services but he feels more comfortable talking about Developer Tools and LangTech products. After all it’s all about languages, natural or programming languages.
He is in essence a Product Marketer that dwells with designers and coders throwing market insight, biased opinions and funny comments at product development.
Clear focus on go-to-market strategy, launch, growth, and Oxford comma.
As the newest member of the software engineering team, Gwyn brings a wealth of experience to the company.
Having gained a degree in Mathematics from the University of Cambridge, he went on to develop innovative solutions for several multinational companies in fields such as oil refinery optimisation and industrial machine vision.
Gwyn loves to travel, and dreams of one day driving a corvette along the iconic Route 66.
