Hello 👋
My next available slot is

  • Tuesday 7th Dec10:00 AM (GMT)

I’m a Director of Engineering at BitSight (Lisbon Office). Previously, I’ve started a small consultancy shop and worked for Talkdesk, Altran Technologies, OutSystems, Tekever and GE, I’ve been in the industry for 18+ years and leading teams and/or practices for 10+ years. Before that, I like to think I was a decent enough software engineer.
