I’m Luis Peña.

I’m passionate about exploring the extent of technology through web and mobile development. I thrive in environments where I can bring designs to life and help deliver experiences that actually solve problems.

I'm a software engineer at Dave.com. At Dave, our goal is to change the face of finance by putting financial minds at ease. We offer banking services and an interest-free advance product to help members avoid overdraft fees. Most recently, I worked on a tool that helps our members find Side Hustles.

Before Dave, I was at Joany. At Joany, our mission was to build the future of healthcare. We built a simplified healthcare shopping experience. We also offered services to help members take full advantage of their health insurance.
