Biography

David Cabrerizo

I am an Industrial Engineer (specialized in Electronics and Automatic Control) who studied and started working in Madrid, but soon after moved abroad. Currently I am working in Bremen, Germany.

My areas of work are mainly Engineering Management, currently in Submarine Systems. Even though I am an electronic engineer, I've always been more and more specialized in software, and later on also in management. I have been working in Command and Control Systems, Tactical Communications and Research and Development projects.

Depending on the project my roles have been Engineering Manager, Systems Engineer, Software Architect, Software Responsible or Technical Responsible, with experience in many multinational projects, in Germany, Spain, Greece, Norway, Netherlands, UAE, Switzerland, Hungary and other countries.

My interests are Software Management, Software Development Processes, Software Quality and Test, Project Management, Development Methodologies (everything under the Agile umbrella), and how to apply all that know-how into working teams. I enjoy building teams and having contact with customers and/or subcontractors.
