Our Team

Iñigo

Iñigo began playing with computers from age 9, after inheriting his uncle’s spectrum ZX. From that moment on, Iñigo knew he would be working with computers for the rest of his life.

His interest developed by learning Visual Basic at school, getting a Computer Science Engineering degree then working with a wide range of products spanning from cloud, health services and robots.

Computers are only one of his technical passions, Iñigo also loves video games. Specifically sagas like God of War, Uncharted or Assassins Creed. He just started playing Ghost of Tsushima – on a PlayStation of course 🎮

In his spare time Iñigo is a sport enthusiast with a love for CrossFit, biking and a constant longing for winter to go snowboarding.

Prior to RoninPixels Iñigo and Co-founder Gorka initially worked together at Comalatech (an Atlassian Marketplace top vendor)where he took over the technical leadership in the cloud products and Gorka worked as the head of product. Four years later, he had the opportunity to work as CTO of a blockchain company before returning to contribute his knowledge and skills to build awesome Atlassian apps.

Javier

Javi started programming his old Dragon32K and Amstrad CPC in the 1980’s, when he was just a child. With a fascination for building things, he immersed himself in learning and replicating programs he read in books.

In his 20s, after gaining a Computer Science Engineering degree, Javi started to build software products that broke technical barriers in order to deliver worthwhile software solutions for customers.

During these years, he worked as a consultant to help businesses solve their problems as well as designing products from scratch and architecting big cloud services and refactoring processes.

He met Gorka and Iñigo at Comalatech where he worked as a Software Engineer gaining expertize in the Atlassian ecosystem.

Javier enjoys cooking and eating (mainly), video games, hiking and living a semi nomadic life (currently residing in Chile).

Gorka

Gorka’s story doesn’t start with programming. Instead, when he was a kid he preferred MS-DOS to play Gorillas (for nostalgics) then moving on to adventure games such as Monkey Island, Loom and Indiana Jones. His initial focus was more on fun rather than programming.

Then thanks to some inspiration from some high school friends, Gorka obtained a Computer Science Engineering degree and loved every minute of it. He started his work experience in Edinburgh, Scotland working in home automation before beginning his Ph.D. in Web Information Systems. Gorka’s research was focused on model-driven engineering, Web2.0, knowledge management (especially wikis) and recommendation systems.

Wanting to put his research into practice, Gorka founded Keinoby and launched three apps for Confluence. After being acquired by Comalatech (an Atlassian Marketplace top vendor), Gorka worked as head of product within his new extended team alongside current RoninPixel team members Iñigo and Javier. Before co-founding RoninPixels, both Gorka and Javier worked on a recruiting platform – which was acquired after just 1.5 years.

When he’s not working, Gorka enjoys good craft beers, visiting new restaurants, practising Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and wrestling 🤼 He also participates in a project to promote the use of medical cannabis.

And we cannot forget about Indi, Sheldon and Eder, his three rescued cats 😻

Why RoninPixels?

Ronin. Samurais were Japanese warriors under the bushido code of martial virtues (samurai meant “one who serves“). And those samurais without a lord or master, were called rōnin (浪人, drifter, wanderer or literally “wave man”).

Like samurais were meant to serve their masters, we are meant to serve our users. No masters, so ronins be it.

Pixels. A pixel is the basis for digital images, it represents a sample of the original image. However, one single pixel on its own is useless, no matter its intensity. Pixels need to group together to generate amazing results.

Like pixels, we work together to unleash our potential. As a team, so pixels be it.
