Javier Alejandro Álvarez López

AstraZeneca / Software Development Engineer in Testing

Looking forward to work with you!

I'll go straight to the point, I love the feeling of creating new things and learning in the process, it's the kind of feeling that drives me forwards and pushes my ambition to create more. The interdisciplinary approach of mechanics, control, electronics and programming can achieve unimaginable feats, and that's just fascinating to me.


In the future

I'd like to work again in Japan, in a great technology company which challenges me to exploit all my knowledge and pushes me further to learn even more.
