Python Developer


This is Marcos, Python Developer at Tappx. In this interview, he confesses that his role is like having superpowers and how much fun he has programming with Python.

Question: How did you get into the AdTech industry?

Answer: I got the opportunity to get into AdTech through Tappx. Thanks to them, I’m aware of what’s going on in this industry.

Q: What is the best part of being a Python Developer?

A: There’re many, but basically, is like having superpowers. It’s a multi-disciplinary position/skill where the imagination is the limit. Python is one of these programming languages that can do almost anything. So, as you guessed, it’s really funny.

Q: Could you list some tips to become a good Python Developer? What are the essential skills needed in your job?

A: Sure: 

  • Computational thinking (essential)
  • Math and statistics (essential)
  • OOP, object oriented programming
  • Problem solving
  • Adaptability with ease
  • Good understanding of ML algorithms

Q: Tell us about a recent reliable client relationship, success story, or goal you’re proud of.

A: It’s about a recent experience I had teaching Data Analysis in a business school, MBA. When it comes to the number of students, the teaching path must be adapted to catch as much attention as possible from all different students with different preferences. Therefore, with 60 students was a challenge to perform, even if we are talking about teaching programming thinking to business administration students in roughly 8 days. That was a great experience.

Q: How do you organize your day? What tools do you use and which of them are your favorite ones?

A: I’m not the kind of person to organize much. What I do is just free myself up if I know I’d need time for something. Let’s say I use my mind to sort things out. But, if the list of checkboxes comes to a considerable amount, then I use a notebook to write down my tasks and ideas.

Q: What do you expect from the future of the industry? What needs to be improved?

A: I think that I need more understanding to give a proper answer. On the other hand, with the upcoming deletion of cookies, we must be critical and think out of the box to get something to hold on to.

Q: Do you have any idea how many emails you send per day?

A: Two or three for now jajaj I just hope not much, I prefer to spend my time on the command line and dealing with code.

Q: What is the app you use the most in your daily life?

A: Web browser without a doubt.

Q: What is the first thing you do when you get home and disconnect from work?

A: I love cooking. After a working day is a great moment to get creative with food. Exercise is one of the things that can pull one out of a busy mind, so yeah, I like to do that too.

Q: What would you do if you won the lottery?

A: I’d spend part of the money buying a terrain in the mountain with a simple house. Help my family, build a business the way I think an ethical business must be done and donate the rest to nature care as well as to animal care in the wild.
