IT Consultant for Startups
IT Consultant for Startups
All of my background comes from IT, specially web development, the area which I am passionate and have been working since 2000. In 2009 I started to develop my entrepreneur skills (specially in the startups environment) starting up a digital business called Bloompa, which I have been strongly working with the e- commerce environment. Nowadays I'm working strongly with back-end and front-end development and also trying to improve the developers community.

Started out as a front-end engineer to integrate custom and responsive layouts to e-commerce platforms such as Hybris and Vtex, worked to improve the team workflow and to integrate foreign teams with the local team, becoming a local team leader. The company was the first to work in partnership with Hybris (e- commerce platform) and Mobify (mobile for e-commerce platform) in Brazil, which gave me opportunities to work with international teams and projects.
Bloompa is a social behavior company which I've started with a friend in 2009 and 2 years later we applied for the 21212.com Digital Accelerator program (and competed with 200 companies), which proudly, we got envolved. Since that time we have participated from several contests such as Campus Party Brasil 2010(finalist), Campus Party Brasil 2011/Wayra(finalist), Startup World 2012 (finalist). ------ Co-founder and CTO, who not only works with the web development department (Cloud Computing management included) but also with the design team, with social media marketing and financial management. To move the company fast, I learned, developed and improved skills such as negotiate with investors and angel investors, team management, public presentations (pitching and workshops) and financial management. On the technical side I improved my code performance and learned about to have a deal with the system's scalability with different technologies.
I joined in the IT team and developed all the new web infrastructure (including website, students panel, billing process integrated with the existent ERP system, the mobile version for the students panel and the content manager (CMS) for the company's web environment).
Over the period that I worked there, I introduced and implemented the first PHP environment (the company used to uses Java language) of the company. I also introduced the Xoops Framework (CMS) for the team and developed parts of the company's intranet and websites. Since that period they adopted the framework as the official CMS for the whole company which they are using currently.
