Summary

I've been developing software for over 10 years.

During this time, I've worked for big ISP's, as a freelancer and I've started my own companies.

My knowledge is broad, as I've done apps for desktop, backend, web frontend and even embedded devices.

I started my own companies, leading me to dive into business and managing larger projects felt like a very natural progression.

Senior Frontend Developer

CarNext

As part of the team responsible of delivering the most visited pages on the website, we were tasked to deliver the most delightful and performant site possible.

In an effort to reduce complexity and increase overall app quality, I proposed the team to rearchitect the app code to more logical hierarchical structure, which was well welcomed and adopted. This allowed not only for a better programming experience, but sped up on-boarding new developers to this new structure.

Design and UX is another very important part of CarNext, therefor interactions between developer teams and design happened every day. For me, turning the intended design quality into real web component was crucial to deliver the best customer experience possible.

Full Stack Developer

SUITSUPPLY

I joined the company to work on the Frontend, to make beautiful interfaces from the great designs that were assigned to me.

My great attention to detail and misaligned pixels pushed me into leading the development of the UI kit that would then be used all across the site. This kit was composed by React components styled and ready to be used on any of the many application the company works on.

I also had the opportunity to work with backend-focused technologies, like GraphQL. This was the first time I really had the chance to use it on a bigger scale.

More recently,  I've started giving development support in Salesforce (Demanware) . This was my first contact with the platform.

Mobile Developer

Conference Compass

I was invited to join the company to continue the work of the CTO that was leaving. He had done all mobile development, and had to delegate any pending work.

My responsibilities involved not only to take over mobile development, but also review the app structure and the backend architecture.

Their native app was done using the Appcelerator Titanium framework. This allowed to have a single code base which could be deployed to different platforms, with very little effort and changes.

On the backend, I optimized the database model by getting rid of unnecessary tables that resulted in duplicated data and lower performance when doing queries on thousands of records.
