Jose Alberto Gonzalez Rouille

I started out as a software engineer over 15 years ago, highly-motivated to grow my expertise in strong backend development and solving complex tasks efficiently. It’s my passion for problem-solving that led me to co-found Hippo Build last year. A specifically tailored project management software solution for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that makeup roughly over 75% of the global construction industry.
