    Why I Left my six-figure remote tech job feat. Hugo Castellanos | Season 4 Finale

    Why I Left my six-figure remote tech job feat. Hugo Castellanos | Season 4 Finale

    We made it to episode 50! Thank you for sticking around.
    I share the story of why I left a very lucrative, very toxic, tech job, some perspective from having achieved my FIRE number, my personal values, and how I like to make career decisions at this point of my life.
    It's been 1.5 years since I left that corporate gig, and I find myself so much at peace right now. Walking the Camino de Santiago in May 2022 was instrumental to reconnecting with myself and my values, I do recommend it if you ever have to overcome any major life changes OR if you honestly enjoy long walks with your thoughts :)
    Will this be the last season of Latinos Who Tech? I honestly, don't know. I DO know that I love making podcasts and connecting with tech professionals like you.
    I started hosting meetups virtually and in-person with other Latino professionals and I find it incredibly rewarding.

Enlightening

Hugo shines light on the world of technology for and alongside Latinos. Refreshing and enlightening podcast for anyone looking to explore the tech field from the inside out perspective.

Learning Experiences

Hugo is very helpful leading the conversation, and he was also able to share about his experience that was very helpful too. I'm planning to get an MBA at some point in my career, and after listening to Hugo and Roxana I was able to take some notes of what steps to take to achieve my goal. I definitely recommend this podcast to my classmates and professional connections!

Great Podcast for STEM student or professional!

Hugo give you a great insight into his guest. He does a great job at asking the right questions and talking with his guests as friends so you’re able to learn something new as if it’s being told to you first hand. Would recommend this podcast to any STEM student, professional, or enthusiast.
