EarthSoft Opens Operations in Chile and Hires Eduardo Rojas
August 18, 2015
Concord, MA July 31, 2015 – EarthSoft announced today that Eduardo Rojas has joined the company as an EQuIS developer in Santiago, Chile. EarthSoft’s EQuIS is the most widely used environmental data management software in the world. Eduardo will also provide project management and support services in Chile and for EarthSoft’s rapidly growing South American business operations.
Eduardo received his geologist degree and master’s degree from the University of Chile with highest honours and has over 25 years of experience in software development, primarily in modern programming and database languages. He acquired experience in geological project management, building databases and technical support for clients while working for two years at Geovectra S.A. After that, Eduardo joined Golder Associates, where he became an associate of the company working primarily on geological audits, due diligences, database and data analysis projects as well as modeling. In order to carry out his work more efficiently and systematically, and help others do the same work, he developed a series of software tools widely used within the company. After forming the Innovation and Development group at Golder Associates, he produced a global data management system used to collect a large variety of field data throughout the company using best practice data management procedures. After more than seven years at Golder Associates, he took a year to work on personal development projects.
Eduardo now joins EarthSoft’s development team with nearly 10 years of experience in data management, data collection and data visualization, primarily in the mining and engineering sector. As EarthSoft’s EQuIS software is used by more governments, industrials and environmental consultants around the world every day, EarthSoft’s client base in the mining sector continues to expand rapidly.
EarthSoft CEO Mitch Beard commented, “We are pleased to welcome Eduardo to our Development team where we expect his experience as a geologist and a programmer will add significant value to our products and facilitate our rapid growth in South America.”
Eduardo Rojas added, “I look forward to helping EarthSoft continue the rapid innovation in their EQuIS platform, as well as providing support to EarthSoft clients in South America, where I hope to add significant value to their operations.”
