Carlos Javier Orrego

Welcome to my website

I am a software developer & architect.

I'm a software engineer with 10 years of experience developing small solutions, large software systems, and everything in between in the United States and in my home country, Chile.

Until recently, I worked as technical lead and .NET expert at Solu4B S.A. in Santiago, Chile, a software company offering both off-the-shelf solutions and custom software development. I was in charge of developing their flagship product Engage, a CRM, BPM, and BI tool with 10 years in the market. I successfully migrated it from Visual Basic 6 to .NET 4.6 and the newest HTML5+CSS+JS technologies, and enhanced its security, scalability and usability. As technical lead, I was also responsible for directing the design of new solutions and providing training, tools and methodologies for different development teams.

In the past I have developed products for several other companies, as well as running my own startup.

My friends and colleagues know me as a highly creative and resourceful developer whose passion is to create great software. In a world of the internet, web servers, APIs, mobile apps and hundreds of competing technologies, this is not an easy task. Architecture, design and the development process are all fundamental to deliver quality products. This is why I have dedicated most of my career not only to writing software, but also to analyzing how to produce better software. From requirements, through architectural decisions, system designs and coding, all the way to delivery and continuous improvement. Choosing the best tools and technology is important, but so is having good development processes. Practices must work for your product and also for your people.

I have a MSc from Stony Brook University (New York) and a BSc from Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María (Santiago). I am a green card holder.

I’m currently freelancing while I pursue new opportunities and can be reached through my Linkedin profile.


I have been lucky enough to get the best education from two different countries.
