I'm Agustin, co-founder and head of product at MURAL. If you have 5 minutes, let me tell you my short story.
I was born in Argentina. From 1984 to 2012, I lived in Buenos Aires, Palo Alto, and Sao Paulo. In 2008, I graduated from Universidad Catolica Argentina with a bachelor degree in Business Administration. Since then, I've been working in tech companies.
I started my career as a finance guy at Three Melons, a video game company. I entered the company when we were 12 people. The company grew to 50 people, and in 2010 we released a Facebook soccer game called Bola. Bola was a hit. We had more than one million users per day and made hundred thousands in monthly revenue.
In 2010, we sold Three Melons to a Silicon Valley video game company called Playdom. At Playdom I assumed a product role and felt in love with product. I was an associate product manager for Bola. I analysed user behaviour and got insights from data. I also briefly worked in another game that was never released. I mostly wrote product specs and actively participated in key product decisions.
The same year we sold Three Melons to Playdom, The Walt Disney company bought Playdom. This meant I would be working for one of the most important companies in the world. I worked at Disney as an associate product manager for one year. I left the company to work at Techint, one of Argentina's most important companies. I liked it but it wasn't that fulfilling for me.
In 2011, I got married to Maggie. That same year, I left Techint to start a company called MURAL with Three Melons' founders. We released our first beta in September 2012. I've been working as the Head of Product since then.
In 2013, my son Felipe was born and two years later, my daughter Mercedes was born.
In 2015, I took one year off to pursue a master's degree in Product Design from Northwestern University. I graduated in June 2016. After that, I went back to Argentina, where I currently live with my wife and kids. I also went back to work at MURAL.
