Juan Saavedra
Vice President, Technology, Octobot


Juan Saavedra is the cofounder and vice president of technology at Octobot, where he oversees technical proposal and execution of outstanding digital products for several verticals, both at home and abroad. With a degree in software engineering, he used to enjoy his spare time being an instructor in computer architecture and networks, where he went too much full stack. He’s the father of one and a football (soccer) fan, and he rarely thinks a beer has too much hops.
