Hi, I'm Carlos!
As a marketer at HubSpot, my job is to enhance the way we delight our customers. It's what I love to do and what I've been doing for many years. I have had the fortune of working with amazing teams throughout my career at companies like Adobe, Wellington Management and HubSpot. When I look for the next step in my career, I turn to my passions, hobbies, skills and aspirations.
I love everything about marketing, customer advocacy, product marketing, and building features for millions of users.
It's what wakes me up every morning.
It's what makes me who I am.
It's in my DNA.
And today I'd love to share with you my story.
Perks of an unsatisfied curiosity
One of my favourite questions to be asked is 'what is my super power?' In fact, Bill Gates just wrote his 2016 annual letter talking about how we should discover and embrace our very own super hero power. This is also a common sentiment amongst HubSpotters, my current workplace!
Mine is having is the ability to tackle challenges with an unsatisfied curiosity. I am able to think in very complex, almost undefined, ways. I can blend in a hint of emotional intelligence, logic and pragmatism, and business acumen. That is why I was able to thrive in my role as a management consultant.
I will impulsively spend my nights learning about the fall of the Roman Empire, or the history of the US Supreme Court, or what goes on inside our bodies when we have a cold. Anything or everything — I'd love to learn it!
A little bit about hobbies
On a daily basis, I am easily amused by small details and will constantly go out of my way to make someone's day. Being an on-campus RA is a perfect example of my involvement with the community around me. Likewise, I have a strong affinity for the world of payments, traveling and shaping what I like to call 'the human experience.'
I am big into Taylor Swift, Game of Thrones, House of Cards, Suits and always down for a game of Tennis, Volleyball or Chess.
Writers like Khaled Hosseini, Garcia Marquez, Nick Bolton, Isabel Allende, Peter Thiel and JD Salinger have a designated sense of belonging at the top shelf of my bookcase.
Collecting stamps as a go
I was born and raised in El Salvador, a beautiful country in Central America bordering the coast of The Pacific. In 2011, after finishing high school at an International British School, I ventured off to Boston to start my career at Northeastern University. From there I've moved to a few different cities including San Francisco and London. I have also had the chance to explore the world, learn about different cultures and meet fantastic people!!
Out of the things I enjoy the most is finding myself in a new city. I love discovering a new coffee shop, a lounge, a bar, bakery, restaurant or a hidden cobble street. From an amorphous San Francisco to a London that was both alluring and photogenic to an exotic Southeast Asia and the endearing Cartagena.
A love for tech, tacos & public speaking
Rumor has it I wear the biggest smile when I catch the glimpse of a red velvet cupcake or when I'm indulged by the scent from a creamy latte or even watching the escalating likes when I upload to Instagram. Huge fan of Spotify's social experiment and a recent premium user of the app Elevate.
I bring to the table a unique blend of international perspectives and insights to different industries including management consulting, asset management, sales enablement and paid search and social.
My latest blog post touched upon how ago about my current job search where instead of looking at LinkedIn, Indeed or Northeastern's Careers Site, I look at my phone. I want to be on a team who is at the forefront of figuring out how big of a human problem can we solve.
