Sebastian (Sebas) Alvarez is the VP of Engineering at Olapic. He was the first Olapic employee and started both the Engineering team and the Argentina office back in 2012. Along with Nico Ramos and the rest of the local leadership team, he helped to grow the Olapic Argentina office from 0 to 100+ employees (or Lemurs, as we like to call them) that it is today.
Born in Patagonia Argentina, Sebas learned how to walk by stepping on his father’s TI-99 keyboard, breaking it, and thus establishing himself as an “ultimate computer-fan” ever since.
Before Olapic, he worked as a developer contractor for multiple marketing agencies in Argentina and around the world. Since graduating college, Sebas has been an active member in several open source communities, where he helps cultivate the principles and practices of open source and fosters co-creation for software projects.
