As the youngest person at Oval when he was hired, Diego brought fresh energy to the backend development team.
Now, although no longer the youngest, he still cheers up the office with his revolutionary spirit and his enthusiasm for Rick and Morty!
As a work anniversary present he actually asked for the board game based on said cartoon... but we preferred to dedicate a blog post to him instead!
- What was your idea of Oval, before you started? I didn't have any. I was looking for a place to start working and I immediately tried to aim high... it worked!
- After a year working with us would you say it was everything you expected it to be? Yes, absolutely!

- What is your favourite thing to do outside of work? Follow my curiosity.
- What is your favourite drink to order at the bar? Whisky or beer if it's talking time, Gin & Tonic if it's party time!
- If you could go on holiday anywhere in the world where would it be? I would go to explore planets outside our Solar system.
- What is the one thing you couldn’t live without? Oxygen (ED: same answer as his colleague Gas, they work together for a reason!).
- What is your degree in? I am still studying computer science at the University of Turin.
