WeAreDelphix: Meet Javier Barthe
What do you do at Delphix and what inspired you to join the company?
I joined the company last November as a sales development representative. I’m responsible for spreading the Delphix message and brand over the Hispanic region in Latin America, working closely with our partner ecosystem to achieve success. I first encountered Delphix in 2015, when I was working as a database manager at a healthcare company based in Buenos Aires. I was looking for a solution that could help me and my team better manage dev/test data. After seeing a demo of the Delphix platform, I was amazed to see the capabilities the platform brought to data. Ever since, I’ve been a Delphix lover.
Delphix also has a great culture that inspires happiness, health, and greatness. Colby Wren—senior director of Americas sales development—and Bruna Bolorino—general manager for Latin American operations—are both supportive managers that care about fostering a strong sense of culture and community.
You can ask me anything about…?
Technology and databases. I have more than a decade of experience working with all types of databases (Sybase Hana, MSSQL, MongoDB, Oracle). I’m also a tech lover, and I read about it every day. I’m currently getting my master’s degree in technology, where I’m diving deep into emerging trends and technologies such as IoT, machine learning, analytics, and big data. Outside of work, I teach part-time at Universidad Tecnológica Nacional FRGP.
What’s the coolest project you’ve worked on at Delphix?
It’s difficult to point out the coolest project as every day brings on a new, exciting challenge. I love hearing from customers about the impact Delphix has on their development processes after a complete database delivery in minutes and using our self-service features. You’ll also notice me in some of our Spanish webinars, showcasing all the different ways our product can benefit customers’ digital transformation programs, especially in the area of data compliance.
What are your hobbies or passions outside of Delphix?
I like sports, especially handball and biking. While we’re still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, travelling is another big passion of mine that I plan to resume as soon as it is safe to do so.
5 songs that make your personal soundtrack:
La vuelta al mundo - Calle 13
Latinoamérica - Calle 13
El Aguante - Calle 13
Let it Be - The Beatles
Penny Lane - The Beatles
What show are you binge watching?
The Office. This is old, but I enjoy watching it as it reminds me of some of the funny memories of being in the office, especially after working from home for more than a year now. I’m also watching The Big Bang Theory, Peaky Blinders, and The Queen's Gambit.
What drives you everyday?
I’m passionate about helping customers innovate using data. I talk and engage with technologists at different companies almost every day, and I’m still amazed to hear about all the different data ecosystems and data infrastructures companies have in place today. My ultimate goal is to help businesses achieve a true data-driven culture, where data is delivered at the speed of business to the right people and in a secure way.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Be whatever you want in life, but be the best at it. One of my university professors shared this quote, and it’s had a huge impact on me ever since. I try to give my best to everything I do and work towards improving myself every day.
