In this Accomplished Peeps interview, we spoke with Alejandro Florido, Head of Telemetry & IoT at Archivos Protegidos S.A. As we've been featuring quite a few Accomplished Peeps here in Europe and North America, we wanted to dive down South to highlight some of the successful leaders managing remotely from afar. If you're wondering what a day in the life of a Head of Telemetry is like, tune in!
Management and organization of IoT (Internet of Things) projects. A normal day is to study alternative solutions or prepare innovative proposals for potential clients. It also includes the management of ongoing projects.
Currently in a pandemic, my workspace is basically a work table with a notebook and a second monitor, all in the home office. A comfortable work chair and high-speed internet access.
It is not exactly a habit, but first of all, I have breakfast, then I read and answer my emails, and then start with the daily tasks. At the end of the day, I check that there is nothing important pending. Then I almost totally disconnected, although sometimes due to time differences with other countries I have videoconferences scheduled outside of local work hours.
We synchronize the daily dynamics through WhatsApp project groups.
Use headphones and play music that I like and know, so as not to be distracted.
I watch Celtic dances a lot, since the music and dance are very upbeat.
I would go back to training at the Parkour gym where I trained before the pandemic
