About

Marcello Chiuminatto Estevez

Senior Software Engineer

I bring extensive experience from the fin-tech sector, where I have led the design, coding, and implementation of solutions in banking, electronic payments, algorithmic trading infrastructure, and strategy development.

My career has afforded me the opportunity to work in multiple countries including Chile, Mexico, Dubai, and Uruguay, thus cultivating a diverse and multicultural perspective.

One of my most notable accomplishments is leading a team in the end-to-end design and implementation of a real-time algorithmic trading infrastructure. This project encompassed price streaming, algorithm execution, order placement and management, risk control, strategy evaluation, and trading monitoring and analytics.

While I prefer working under controlled conditions, I am adept at navigating dynamic and challenging environments, always with the business goals in clear focus.

Python is my go-to tool for development and research, chosen for its efficiency, philosophical approach, comprehensive library support for data science, web and back-end development, among other use cases, coupled with the robust support of its community.

Overall, my fin-tech expertise, supported by my global experiences, has equipped me with the skills and knowledge to succeed in this fast-paced industry.
