Hello, World.

I'm Washington Ortega.

Mechatronic Engineer Robotic Researcher

More About Me

Let me introduce myself.

Profile Picture

I am an innovative mechatronic designer with couple years of experience managing all aspects of autonomous technology projects from concept to final product design. I have led different technological projects introducing robotics to different business sectors. Now I am very eager to meet the challenge of developing new territories.


Passionate for the research and implementation of new technologies. Innovative, with natural leadership abilities with an effective relationship in a group job acquired in previous work and studies, also an holistic knowledge in project management that indorse me to develop a concept from early stages until the final product. Living and studying in different countries allowed me to work and adapt easily to a changing environment.
