Meet the team: Amina Layco
This is the first in a series of posts in which our CEO, Laurence John, introduces some of the team behind ctrlio. In celebration of International Women’s Day, Laurence caught up with Amina Layco, one of ctrlio’s female developers:
Born in Argentina, Amina Layco has over 5 years experience in software development in both Argentina and the US. After studying software engineering and development in the Universidad Austral of Buenos Aires she went on to develop her skills within organisations including BumpyCrowd, a startup that was focused on preventing bullying in schools. Amina told me “I’ve always been interested in building innovative products that make a difference while providing a great user experience across multiple platforms.”
When I asked why she decided to become a software developer Amina said she enjoys building things from scratch, even though programming can also be very challenging: "The best part is constantly learning new skills and getting to see a product launch.”
Since joining us in January 2016 Amina has been a part of our core development team. “There’s a very open environment [at ctrlio] that allows us to work together and fix problems with shared knowledge. Nobody has all the answers and all opinions are heard, which is refreshing.” Amina runs the company’s development sprints, a strategic part of how we bring product to market and therefore the business overall.
When it comes to the future, Amina is growing her knowledge by learning new programming languages including Python as well as learning new skills such as agile project management.
