Founder & Vice President of Payment Systems

Wilmer Sarmiento

Open English

Wilmer first teamed up with Andres Moreno while the two were engineering students at the Universidad Simon Bolivar (USB) in Caracas, Venezuela. As the founding VP of Technology, Wilmer became the chief architect for the early online learning platform and was heading up infrastructure research and framework validation – his specialty. From there he moved onto leading the Payment Systems division. 

Wilmer has a degree in Computer Engineering from USB, having achieved the highest GPA in the history of the department. Without a day of traditional classroom training, Wilmer has also taught himself English, largely through the development of the Online School of Open English.
