What’s a Chief World Changer? An Omaze employee who goes above and beyond their daily work and embodies our company virtues (We Before Me, Grow Together, Take Ownership, Dream Giant, and Spread Joy).
Meet Francisco. He’s a Software Engineer and was nominated by his peers across the company to be recognized as Chief World Changer! He was an integral part of creating our new Omaze accounts and is an unflappable powerhouse when it comes to coding.
What’s your favorite thing about your job?
I’m a Software Engineer and my favorite thing about my job is that Omaze is a company with great people to be surrounded by. It also has a fantastic team that is always innovating and willing to learn new technologies. It feels good to be part of a company whose main purpose is to give back to the community and is socially responsible.
In your opinion, what does it mean to be a world changer?
It means a lot to me because I know the hard work we do as individuals. As Omaze, we’re making a great social impact by building homes, helping hospitals and providing education just to name a few ways.
Which Omaze virtue means the most to you?
The virtue that I believe the most is Grow Together. I firmly believe that a team, an organization and a community are interdependent. It requires the unique abilities of many individuals that want to come together to innovate and make a difference.
What cause are you passionate about and why?
Education. For me education is one of the most important things in life. Without an education it is hard to grow in all aspects of life.
What book did you contribute to our company bookshelf?
This is Marketing by Seth Goding. Even though I’m a software engineer, as of two years ago, I’ve been very interested in learning more about marketing and enhancing my communication skills. I love Seth’s definition of marketing:
“Marketing is the generous act of helping others become who they seek to become. It involves creating honest stories—stories that resonate and spread. Marketers offer solutions, opportunities for humans to solve their problems and move forward. And when our ideas spread, we change the culture. We build something that people would miss if it were gone, something that gives them meaning, connection and possibility.”
What’s one food you couldn’t live without?
Is hard to say that my favorite food is not Cuban food because I’m from Cuba. But after moving to LA and trying Thai food, now Thai is my favorite food.
And finally, what’s your dream Omaze experience?
Meet my favorite tennis player, Rafael Nadal.
