Hi there! My name is Ariel Rodriguez Romero

I’m a software engineer based in Philadelphia. I studied Computer Science in the University of Havana.

I work as a front end developer at the Childhood Cancer Data Lab. Most of the work we do is open source and can be seen on github.

Before that, I co-founded an ad-tech company named Bidwise. With no outside funding, we made more than one million dollars in revenue in the first year. Bidwise was selected as one of the top 100 startups in North America. There’s a piece in El Nuevo Herald about it (in spanish).

My full CV can be seen on LinkedIn.

Blog Posts

I like to blog from time to time, mainly to practice my English skills. Most posts are about technology, related to whatever I'm doing at that time. Let me know in the comments if you find yourself reading anything or if you have some feedback. Thanks!
