Brick Abode

Dec 2015 - current

I was on ground 0 of this incredible adventure of trying to find the best talent available in Brazil and to help structure then into world-class teams. Brickabode is a special place. Here I had the pleasures of: ➥ Actively listen to customers so they get what they need; ➥ Craft documentation that creates business value and help these customers clarify their ideas; ➥ Structure a hiring pipeline that attracts the very best software engineering talent in the country; ➥ See what a world class software development team can do, and help then do it correctly and at the proper time to bring value for our customers. To give you a glance of the fun around here, so far, I have been personally involved in such incredible projects as: ➥ training the whole development division of one of the largest business intelligence companies in the country; ➥ a high performing auction house; ➥ an integration of a complex payment system with cutting edge data analytics and marketing automation tools; ➥ a data analytics platform specialized in video content for social media. Its been quite a ride so far, and it shows no sign of slowing down. Quite the contrary.

Nubank Brasil

May 2015 - Aug 2015

I helped their research department by integrating several different data analysis sources, while also providing insights into their Clojure code base. I also participated in the initial efforts of their internal double entry accounting system. There I reported directly to their CTO, and I must say that I had a great time there, learning a lot from the most vibrant fintech company in Brazil.

Agri-Esprit

Jul 2013 - Feb 2015

Agri-Esprit was a formative experience for me. I worked with an extremely competent team building a ambitions ERP focused on the agricultural sector. The technology stack was superlative, based on Allegro Common Lisp and an agricultural ontology implemented in its database, AllegroGraph. There I was responsible for building reactive web applications and adapting their database to customer demands. Summing up, it was an incredible experience because: ➥ I was involved in building a state of the art ERP system for agriculture; ➥ Using a highly advanced technology (functional programming, reactive systems, graph databases); ➥ Working alongside a diverse, competent and engaged international team.

Stack Builders

Dec 2012 - Jun 2013

At Stack Builders I observed the value of peer review and a leadership that cared about spreading knowledge while obtaining strong results. There I worked on 3 areas: ➥ as a senior developer with their international team delivering Ruby on Rails applications for their international customers. ➥ as the main developer integrating a system from one of their customers in the financial sector with the systems of the Central Bank of Nigeria. This was done by using a Clojure application interfacing with several Java web services and with cryptography packages. ➥ as the main developer doing a real-time simulator for an interactive lighting installation in NYC. This was also done in the functional programming language Clojure, mostly due to its support for reactive streams.

Neoway

Jan 2010 - Jan 2012

During this period in Neoway I led the efforts to produce a new version of their OCR Captcha recognition system. There I: ➥ Reported directly to the CTO; ➥ Restructured the development environment for research purposes; ➥ Recruited a team that was able to handle the task; ➥ Helped directly with the research and design the system, which involved such disparate approaches such as SVM, Deep Learning, Neural Networks, Intelligent Agents, and Functional Programming; ➥ Led the international team into the successful completion of the project, which improved the document retrieval process in more than 100% in some cases.
