Juan Barroso lives in the Bay Area but was born in Venezuela. He didn’t grow up with technology around him, as his father was a farmer, and his mother was a seamstress. Neither went to University, but they made sure to push Juan to attend university and focus hard on his studies. It was during University that he fell in love with programming. Outside of tech, he likes to try new things, and doesn’t stick with one hobby for too long (other than traveling). Right now, he is into mountain biking and snowboarding.
Juan has been in payroll for many years, and during his tenure, he got the opportunity to build many engines and solutions for the industry. He realized that though one engine worked for one customer, others wouldn’t be happy with it. He wondered if a payroll framework could be built, to allow developers to build their own.
This is the creation story of Salsa.
