I'm a brazilian computer-scientist who had the opportunity to be mentored by great leaders and software architects.

I've been working with high availability APIs, financial systems and online payment processing for about 4 years and currently putting my effort into building efficient and reliable accounting platforms. My programming languages of choice are Elixir and PHP, however I'm confident to work with any object oriented or functional language. I have mastered SQL and the InnoDB engine.

As a Clean Code advocate and admirer of transparent and verifiable software, my objectives are inspiring and connecting ambitious people into building successful projects.


Computer games and tv shows addicted, but I'm also a big lover of going to the beach and relaxing by the nature :)


Professional Experiences and Education

Work Experience

Backend Developer

February 2017 - Now


EBANX is a company that offers payment solutions to international business interested in selling to Latin America customers. I joined EBANX on a trainee program called Code Lab which gave me the opportunity to work with every IT team on the company. Today I'm a PHP Backend developer for the payment processing and financial team and our main goal is to deliver high available APIs and reliable financial systems.

Full Stack developer

July 2015 - July 2016

Internship at GHN

Aside from being a junior entrepreneur, I also started an internship at a small IT Company, in which I was a full stack developer on a .NET C# application called "Linha de Chegada" (Finish Line in english). Linha de Chegada is a social media for gyms and their attendants that allows gyms to deliver training spreadsheets and it's also a place for sportsmen and runners to know each other. My main goal as a software developer was to build the financial module of that app, but I also contributed on many other parts of the system.

Junior Entrepreneur

May 2013 - June 2016

Ecomp - Computation Junior Enterprise

As a member of the director board on a Junior Enterprise I had the opportunity to lead a small team in order to achieve our strategic goals. I also participated on the development of many applications, which included gathering requirements from stakeholders, architecting and coding.


Bachelor Degree in Computer Science

April 2013 - June 2018

Federal University of Paraná (UFPR)

The graduation course on the Federal University is one of the best available in Brazil. The areas which I had most interest were Algorithms Analysis, Software Engineering, Databases and Machine Learning.
