It’s official, the Friend Theory team is growing … massively! What originally started as a project amongst 3 friends, is now a group of 10 creative and intelligent adventurers breaking down the barriers to traveling!
One of the hardest things for an early stage startup, is to attract talent, but we are happy to say that we received nearly 200 job applications! It’s incredible to see that so many people want to get involved with Friend Theory.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again that the best thing about building Friend Theory has been receiving an incredible amount of help and advise from very talented people, so we are super happy to introduce you to our newest 4 team members :
1 – Rachel Bero 🇺🇸
A.K.A: The Community Master
Next Trip: Central & South America
Favorite Plate: An overflowing salad from The Ft. Mason Farmer’s Market
Rachel is the most compassionate, loving and caring person you’ll ever come across, so she knows what the Friend Theory spirit is all about. Originally from Wisconsin, Rachel joins the team with a diverse background in real estate finance, management, health/wellness, and marketing. Don’t be afraid to connect with her through our social media channels and our blog, she’d love to hear from you!
2 – Argel Bejarano 🇲🇽
A.K.A: The Flutter Wizard
Next Trip: Euro Trip!
Favorite Plate: Carne Asada from Sonora
Argel is a blue belt, 5 years in training and soon to be black belt, which gives him a lot of authority on the Friend Theory team. Thankfully, he is one of the nicest guys you will meet. Argel is a Google speaker, the leader of Spanish Flutter community and a senior software developer. Make sure to hit him up for anything Flutter and Mexico travel related (he loves food and music)!
3 – Hugo Pretorius 🇿🇦
A.K.A: The Digital Nomad
Next Trip: Malaysia
Favorite Plate: Nuts, avocado, spinach, tomato, pumpkin seeds all in a BIG bowl. Vegan. Hugo will cook you up a meal that will rock your socks right off.
Hugo loves travel, running, Jack Johnson, and making mean bowls of vegetables. He came to Friend Theory the right way – through friends of friends traveling! He is a software engineer, a designer and an entrepreneur who specializes in Mobile App Development. Be sure to keep an eye out for him on the Friend Theory app and hit him up!
4 – Ángel Pérez 🇪🇸
A.K.A: The Young Hacker
Next Trip: Indonesia, Taiwan and New Zealand
Favorite Plate: Poké or any Mexican food
The youngest Friend Theory family member, Ángel, is the perfect fit for the Friend Theory team. He is a multi-talented drummer, music enthusiast, surfer, kick-boxer, and of course world-wide traveler. Ángel was born in Spain and is a software developer. Funnily enough, we met him at a Friend Theory meet-up and are stoked to have him on the team!
We are beyond excited about this next stage of Friend Theory! We are always on the hunt for new people, so make sure to get in touch if you want to join the family! ❤️
Cheers & Safe Travels,
The Friend Theory Team!
