Digital Services Director at State of North Carolina
Juan Martinez is an outstanding senior-level Drupal developer and digital strategist. His technical abilities extend to enterprise-level Drupal platform implementations including complex areas such as code workflow, security, infrastructure considerations, and site performance optimization. Juan is a deep strategic thinker and I always appreciated his candid feedback for improving our platform and service. In addition to Juan’s technical expertise, he has great “soft skills”. He listens, contemplates, engages, and offers pragmatic solutions. He appreciates that there are business and customer-service needs to consider and it’s not just about the underlying code. Juan was widely liked by folks in various part of the organization and I strongly recommend him.
Digital Executive Producer at Ogilvy & Mather
I have worked closely with Juan for the last 2 years as our most senior Drupal Developer. Working with Juan has been a true privilege. I'm constantly impressed with not just his deep knowledge of the technology itself, but also with his ability to engage and interact with the extended team, both internally and with very senior Clients. Juan is a true leader within his expertise. As he develops new features and functionalities within our experience, he also sharing his depth of knowledge within the Drupal community. There is no challenge that Juan isn't willing to tackle. New Business Requirements are constantly coming down the pike. Juan's ability to find a solution for each and every item is what has kept this project running smoothly. The success of our site experience is a huge call out to Juan. Without his partnership, professionalism, drive and ability for success, we would not be where we are today. I fully recommend Juan as a developer, a leader, a strategist and a true partner for any upcoming project work that requires not only a Drupal expert, but also a pristine partner.
Partner & Technology Manager at Ogilvy Interactive
Juan has been my lead developer for the last 2 years on the IBM People for Smarter Cities platform. Over the course of the project, I've given him pretty much every challenge a Drupal developer can have. To meet these challenges, Juan ended up having to build over 20 modules and custom web services. Beyond that though (as if it's not enough), he was able to optimize performance, make the site secure, and implement a streamlined deployment process. My reasons for recommending Juan go beyond his Drupal skills though. Juan is a true professional who takes his job very seriously. If you give him a deadline, you can trust that he's going to meet it. If he runs into an issue, you can trust that he is going to let you know and that he will have already thought of alternate solutions. Being able to work with a developer that I could trust and depend on throughout this project has been invaluable.
Communications Director at U of MD Medical System
Juan is a very creative and intelligent professional. He has a level of sophistication and confidence that plays very well with clients. But behind his calm demeanor is a real genuiness and caring that makes him excellent to work with.
Sr. Drupal Developer at Spartan Systems Inc.
I have had the opportunity over the years to work with many web developers. Some of them excelled at the development side of things, but lacked significantly when it came to soft skills like verbal communication and teamwork. Juan embodies the ideal member for any team -- someone who faces down challenges by engaging them directly and at the same time always putting their best foot forward when dealing with colleagues and clients. His approach to delivering innovative solution on time and within budget are the sorts of things that would make him extremely valuable in any organization. Needless to say, I highly recommend Mr. Martinez as a member, or leader, of any development effort.
