Jesus changed his life for the better

Meet Jesus Estrada, Tech Lead at Handshake via Terminal in Baranquilla, Colombia. Jesus is a proud ambassador of Terminal and remote work because it completely changed his life for the better! The chief benefits for him are that he gets to spend more time with his family because of an improved work/life balance and superior benefits for him and his family, plus a higher salary. One of Jesus’ favorite features of remote work is that he gets to work side-by-side with his wife, instead of having to commute through traffic to an office. Unlike his prior roles, his work now offers him purpose and meaning in his career. He was able to grow to a tech lead in less than 2 years and now his nearly 15 years of experience are reflected in his senior level career.

Jesus now has autonomy to work independently for Handshake and has a direct relationship with the company. Handshake maintains confidence that Jesus is working hard, solving problems without fear of quality outcomes. Both parties are confident and committed to a long-term partnership, resulting in lower turnover for Handshake and higher job satisfaction and retention for Jesus.
