Nicolas Lara, Architect & Tech Lead at Lincoln Loop

Nicolas Lara

Architect & Tech Lead

Nicolas is a full-stack software engineer with a passion for creatively architecting solutions to hard problems. He likes splitting his time between diving deep into the code and building and leading a team to help them build a better system.

He has a background in Computer Science and is an expert at Python and Django, but he is always interested in new technologies and finding the best tools for the job. Lately, that often involves writing a lot of Go and Rust. If the code to write involves functional programming or meta-programming, even better!

When not sitting in front of a computer, Nicolas enjoys traveling, cooking, and any activities that involve people. He also likes reading and learning new things in general but is particularly interested in philosophy, science, linguistics, and economics.
