Antonella Severo

KnowMad / Technology Project Manager / Digital Marketer

About me

I'm a person who is eager to learn and always evolving. We're now living in a Knowledge Society and I am enthusiastic about contributing to innovation.

I'm a hands-on person and a bit of a nomad, having done many things, such as graphic design, web development, html/css coding, online marketing, website testing, localization, e-learning, project management, information architecture, writing and more. I can easily adapt to the situation or project at hand.

My interests and experience in marketing, design, SEO, testing and usability has proven useful in understanding a project’s needs and enhancing the business and technical strategies of the client. I enjoy digging into the requirements of a project and communicating the needs to the full team and clients. And delivering a quality product has been my passion and obsession in my extensive experience in QA and project management.

I have more than 20 years experience in web development, and have offered services and consulting to corporate media, agencies, entrepreneurs, educational institutions and nonprofits. I've counseled senior management on strategic planning initiatives for their web sites, and managed teams of writers, proofreaders, photographers, illustrators and programmers.

I'm a native New Yorker and first-generation Italian-American. I've been living in Barcelona, Spain for the last ten years and have worked in distributed work environments. I love living in the Barcelona region and taking advantage of all the great hikes, beaches, small towns and cultural events it offers, along with my daughter and husband.

When not in work mode, I enjoy playing piano (actively taking lessons), fitness (bicycling, rollerblading, yoga, swimming), traveling, photography and cooking. I also participate in startup community events and am interested in e-learning and innovation.
