Las 1001 batallas de jesús monleón – podcast #39
La mayoría de la gente probablemente reconocerá a Nacho González Barros por haber creado Infojobs. De hecho, la mayoría de las personas en España habrán conseguido entrevistas de trabajo o algún puesto a lo largo de su carrera gracias a Infojobs, y por tanto a Nacho.
Pero presentarlo como el creador de Infojobs no sería justo para su impresionante trayectoria: es uno de los fundadores del Grupo Intercom, creador de Neurona (vendida a Xing), Niumba (vendida a TripAdvisor) y Salir.com – entre otras. Y ahora, se aventura en una start-up global llamada MailTrack, que te dará un doble control de tu correo electrónico como el de Whatsapp. ¡Así que vamos a presentar a Nacho como el CEO de MailTrack!
Mientras estaba en San Francisco, conocí a Pablo Villalba (8fit, ex-Teambox). Mientras charlábamos sobre el panorama en Barcelona, me dijo «estoy seguro de que el 95% de la gente no sabe quién es el creador de Infojobs ni qué está haciendo ahora». Y bueno, yo parecía estar entre ese 95% de personas que no están al tanto de los esfuerzos de Nacho. Así que me comprometí a averiguarlo.

Nacho gonzález barros, serial entrepreneur – podcast #32
In a country with 2.6 million unemployed, an Internet portal manages to sign more contracts than the INEM. Every 30 seconds, Infojobs publishes a job offer. Joaquim Ferrer has turned it into the second largest employment «web» in Europe. «I am happy. I feel the gratitude of everyone,» he says.
The CEO, Joaquim Ferrer, crosses the threshold. He enters with his back straight. He passes a wall painted with various messages, amorphous drawings, anarchically placed colors. He stops in the room with the coffee and candy machines. He sits on a high bench. He glances at a turned-off Nintendo Wii game console that at any moment someone might turn on to play a game of 3D golf.

Fortunately, Infojobs was not among them. When the online business debacle hit, they had their ace in the hole. Nacho García Barros -a guy with glasses, short hair, Bill Gates look, boiling ideas-, continued to develop the Infojobs project with two other people and with the full support of Joaquim Ferrer, who was already then the CEO of Intercom. «It was a black pearl. We had to believe in that project and go forward,» he says now nostalgically.
