Today we are excited to interview one of our team members from the IT department: Luis, one of FXStreet’s software developers since 2015. On this interview, he explains to us why he moved from Cuba to Barcelona and what he would love to do for a living if he wasn’t one of our IT guys.

How does a day in the life of an IT member at FXStreet look?
Interesting, every day we learn new things and although it can be a bit monotonous keep looking at the computer the whole day, we try to tell some jokes so we don’t end up talking to the screen.
On November 14 and 15 Finance Magnates held the London Summit, a two-day B2B event for Forex industry executives where networking was one of the main objectives. And as every year, FXStreet was there!
This year, Sergi López (CMO), Felipe Ferrer (Advertising Manager), and Colm Mullan (Head of e-sales) represented our company, where they met brokers to discuss new business opportunities and also they were able to discover what is trending in markets.
We are headquartered in Barcelona but FXStreet wouldn’t be the same without its international co-workers. And that’s why today we want to present you Alberto Muñoz, FXStreet’s Spanish Forum Manager. On this interview, he explains to us how is for him working from home in Madrid and how hard is the life of a forum moderator. What is more, and it might surprise you, discover what was one of his first jobs before landing in the financial world.

First of all, how does a day in the life of the Spanish Forum Manager at FXStreet look?
Well it’s like a… roller coaster! 😀 Seriously speaking, there are days when there’s low activity and days when a lot of users decide to ask questions about Forex or some of them decide to start a quarrel for any insignificant reason and you have to intervene and ban a user. At the end, that means that you’re 24/7 watching the forum to avoid any conflict and help users.
