Who are you?
My name is Eloi Garrido. I graduated as an electronics engineer with a master’s degree in embedded systems from Delft University of Technology (NL) and right away moved into programming. I lived in the Netherlands for several years, where I met my partner, and after several attempts I managed to convince her to come to the sunny south. Since my early years, I’ve been interested in technology and tinkering with anything that has a spark. Still, to this day, my parents blame me for any appliance that has stopped working at home.
How did you land at Tokeny Solutions?
Since early 2017 I ended up falling into the crypto rabbit hole and preaching to my friends about it. However, at that point it was mostly a hobby and a bit of an obsession, but still something that at the time didn’t cross my mind could become a profession.
Soon after returning from the Netherlands to Barcelona, I started looking for my next professional adventure and landed at Tokeny, and it felt like the planets aligned, the rest is history.
How would you describe working at Tokeny Solutions?
Working at Tokeny has been a pleasure, very welcoming since day one and surrounded by very talented and engaged people. The team has always been flexible and adaptable, even in the face of our current world situation, allowing me to grow and partake in interesting projects.
What are you most passionate about in life?
I’m a sucker for anything tech related. When I’m not checking the latest toys, I like to gather around friends and family for some relaxing long meals or gaming sessions.
What is your ultimate dream?
From a personal point of view, I dream about having a comfortable and joyful life with my loved ones without any complications. On a global scale, I would love for all of us to stop fighting inwards over every detail and work together towards our general betterment, what couldn’t we achieve then?
What would you change in the world if you could?
A bit of a generic statement, but I would love to see hate disappear, or at least mostly reduced. So that people would focus more on what makes us similar than what differentiates us, all this would leave us with more time to enjoy life instead of wasting it in squabbles.
