Hello 👋

Unfortunately, I don't have any available slot for the next 4 weeks

    I've started my career in 2010 and it's been a wild ride ever since! It all started within the Visual Effects industry working at Double Negative. 10 years and multiple industries later, I have to say that the years I've spent at Double Negative helped me improve my soft skills significantly on top of having a blast working at blockbusters like "Interstellar" and "Fast and Furious". Since leaving the VFX industry I've worked at Abyssal, a Portuguese startup focused on creating a digital 3D world for Oil&Gas, drastically reducing operational costs and improving the environment by increasing the number of successful operations and maintenances. Farfetch has been my home for the past three years where I've grown as a person, as a leader and where I'm proud to say that I learn every single day. To be perfectly honest, one of the things I love to do is to build teams. I really enjoy the entire process of going from individuals into a strong and unified group focused on a common mission with a shared cultural vision. Farfetch has given me that opportunity initially with the Auth team that has since grown to a cluster composed of 3 teams and now with the Observability and SRE teams, two of my latest projects within the company. Above all, I believe that knowledge should be shared and I've been doing so in the past years through blog posts, YouTube videos and participation in podcasts. Get in touch if you want to discuss topics 😜
