MEET THE TQUILA TEAM: Tim Davies


Tim Davies, UI / UX Practice DirectorMeet Tim Davies, Practice Director UI / UX. Tim joined Tquila in July 2012.

A design geek at heart, if you don’t see him engrossed in the latest online design gallery then, as a big gamer, you will find him playing military airsoft! Why not challenge him to a game…

Here’s what Tim has to say about his role at Tquila:

What I do

“User Interface concept and designs for mobile apps. Mapping a user journey and creating sales concepts and pitch materials to present to clients. I take part in client consultation and workshops to help clients get maximum impact from their applications and interfaces. I also deal with project management and oversee road mapping.”

Why I love my job

“It sounds like a cliche, but no two days are the same. This role has opened my eyes to a whole new way of working, I work fast, I work agile and I work fast again! Alongside some of the most talented people in the industry. Every day brings a new challenge with diverse projects.”

Why I love Tquila

“Tquila is a fun and creative brand that pushes the boundaries of traditional technology and helps customers achieve more from their Salesforce solution. We get to help customers see the bigger picture – and for me in particular – get to convince them of the importance of mobile! There is such a great culture here and the atmosphere is electric.”

Meet the Tquila Team: Alfredo Bianco


Meet Alfredo Bianco, Senior Salesforce Consultant. Alfredo joined Tquila in September 2011.

An avid table tennis player he recently dragged many of the team out to play some ping pong and show off his skills!

Here’s what Alfredo has to say about his role at Tquila:

What I do

“I implement business solutions using the salesforce.com platform. Mostly using declarative configuration but I also give myself the chance to ‘get my hands dirty’ and write little bits of Apex code.”

Why I love my job

“It’s incredibly rewarding to help clients bridge the gap between what they explain to you, what the business analyst describes, what marketing advertises and what they really needed from the start. Sometimes this journey leads you through turbulent waters but the final outcome and the clients satisfaction makes it worth it.”

Why I love Tquila

“It’s fun working amongst such smart people and with some great clients. The team come from all around the world with such diverse work and life experiences. It makes you interested in learning more and developing both personally and professionally.”
