We Are UV: Gabriel Gotelli

We Are UV: Gabriel Gotelli.

United Virtualities, at its very heart, plans, builds, and manages high-quality software. And the heart of making that happen — the heart within the heart, Russian doll style — is our software developers. The developers at UV don’t just develop software, but enjoy coming up with creative and effective approaches to all aspects of their life. And today we’re going to profile one of them, Gabriel Gotelli.

Gabriel is a developer, based in Argentina, whose work focuses on Node.js, React, and Angular, although he almost-fondly remembers his .Net Microsoft days. He remembers his first day at the company because it was a special day for the Americans on the team — July 4th, 2018. There was no barbecue to celebrate the start of his work, however. He’s from La Plata, near Buenos Aires, and has a degree in Systems from the National University of La Plata.

What’s your magic power?

My intense commitment to anything I choose to do. I don’t do anything half-heartedly; whole-heart, or nothing. I’m convinced that the best way to achieve anything — and by that, I mean “anything!” — is with serious commitment and deep effort. I have faced different challenges in my life, and every time I have, after I’ve committed to overcoming them and I put in the effort to do so… well, I’ve overcome them each time.

What is your secret behind doing good work?

It’s not just the work itself that matters — it’s being organized about your work. I not only work hard, but go out of my way to be organized about it. That lets me deliver quality results, on time.

What non-work related activity are you obsessed with or just very passionate about?

I play the guitar and bass as a hobby. I was never trained in it, but I learn music by ear and using tabs. Metal is my preferred genre (Iron Maiden will always have a place in my heart) although I enjoy and play many different genres. 

But the most interesting part about my music is probably how I use it to help myself learn languages. I’m now learning Portuguese, and to help me in my Portuguese, I’ve been listening to, playing, and singing lots of Brazilian music. Lately, my favorite song is Djavan’s version of the Brazilian classic, the Garota de Ipanema.

What do you love most about your job?

The people, by far. Interesting people, interesting projects. And on one project, I even got to go and visit the client in the United States!

Do you have any fun facts about your life or work you want to share, other than your awesome way to learn Portuguese via music?

Within the company, I’m known as “Hetitor.” That began because I’m not the only “Gaby” in the company, so we needed a way to distinguish me from the others. I told the team that my first name is Hector and one of the guys had the idea to call me “Hetitor,” the “Hetitor” of UV. This was very funny. And thus my nickname was born!
