Few Words About Me

Hi, I'm Rafael Soufer an Uruguayan Front-End Developer and Team Leader at YAMA Group. On the other hand, I have a bachelor's in Graphic design and experience as a project manager.

I'm currently working as Lead for digital and web app projects at YAMA Group.

Before that, I used to perform as a Project and Operational manager at TCS on a Web creation project for PwC.

What is more, previously working as a web designer/developer at Publicis Impetu, has given me the opportunity to work with, very important clients such as Movistar, Nestlé, L'Oréal, and many more. That being said, I have not only accomplished my duties as a designer, but I also have experience in project management.

Also, I never miss the opportunity for a good adventure and new challenges!

What about Passions?

Have a look inside my head...

Digital & UX / UI Designer

Since my starts studying graphic design at ORT University (2009-2013), I have developed a taste for digital, web, user experience, user interface, and branding design.

Front-end Dev

Being so curious has driving me to be more and more interested in development too.
I'm currently studying and improveing my pure JavaScript and ReactJS skills.

Traveler & Lifelong Learner

Traveling around the world is more kind of an addiction than a passion, knowing different cultures and places opens your mind on such an awesome way...
