What’s a day in the life like in your role at iHeartMediaTech? 
I usually start my day by checking with the team in Slack and by responding to emails. Then I review our Sprint progress in Jira and prepare for the morning standup with the team. We discuss any challenges we have and our progress toward our commitments for the Sprint. One tip I like to share is to make a list of three things you want to accomplish in the day. Try to complete these three items and you will always be ahead. The rest of the day I spend with the team building software.

What is your favorite iHeartMedia product/event? 
I listen to podcasts every day, so I am really excited about the new content we’re creating. I’m definitely looking forward to the iHeartMedia podcast.

​​​​​​Why did you choose iHeartMediaTech? 
It sounds cliche, but one thing I love about iHeartMediaTech is that I get to work every day with people who motivate me. I’ve had the privilege to work with smart and ambitious people building great products, and I'm fortunate to work with the most creative and intelligent people in software development. Every day we’re collaborating and building the future for thousands of our employees and millions of our customers. It doesn’t feel like work. The people, the talent, and the creative mission is what sets us apart.

If you could switch places for a day and be any iHeart On Air DJ or iHeart talent, who would it be and why?
Charlie Parker on WOAI because having a local morning show in San Antonio would be awesome. I could sneak in references to friends and family and talk about the San Antonio Spurs.

What’s a day in the life like in your role at iHeartMediaTech?
I am always working with new vendors learning about new IT services/products being introduced to iHeart. There is never a dull moment at iHM!

Have you ever attended an iHeart event? What was your favorite takeaway?
I attended a small Manuel Medrano live concert that was hosted at the iHeartRadio building once – it was the BEST experience ever! He sang all my favorite songs and we got to take pictures with him at the end.

Why did you choose iHeartMediaTech?
I was already a user of iHM products/services and I wanted to be part of a fun, well-rounded IT organization where I can develop my skills and learn something new every day. I am excited to be a part of a dynamic and evolving company. The opportunities are limitless to broaden my knowledge and contribute to the success of iHeartMediaTech.

If you could switch places for a day and be any iHeart On Air DJ or iHeart talent, who would it be and why?
I would be any DJ on 104.5 Latino Hits! They get to meet a lot of up-and-coming Latino artists and host more intimate concerts with them.
