The soul of Pangea.ai’s brand is making human connections. Our tech partners continue to build and strengthen our community’s DNA. We are very proud to have CI&T as part of our circle, whose unique individuals now inspire and empower all of our team members.

Time to meet the Business Director at CI&T, Aldir!

What do you find to be the most exciting aspect of CI&T?

What I find exciting about CI&T is the company's culture!

Here people come before business and performance. This means that we have freedom to make choices that will make the difference in our lives, our career path and our growth. The company values teamwork, diversity and this makes our teams and work environment very unique.

What advice do you have for prospective CI&T candidates?

Come work with us!

I consider CI&T the best place to work for people who love technology. The company culture puts us in the spotlight and helps us to be the best version of ourselves. Here we have real opportunities to learn, develop and grow. We can work with a bunch of different technologies, the best practices in digital product development and the most valuable brands in the world to build digital solutions that improve people's lives.

Do you have any hobbies, go-to weekend activities, or long-term passion projects you’re working on?

I love water sports. Swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, diving, sailing, fishing, ridding a stand up paddle and much more. It can be in the sea, in the river or in the pool, if there is water I will be there! In fact, everyone in my family loves it, and we're very lucky to live about an hour's drive from the waterfront, so whenever we can we go there.

Before working at CI&T, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had?

My first job was as an English teacher for children. Having studied English for a long time, and having lived abroad, I ended up training to become a teacher for teenagers. For me this was a really cool opportunity to grow, as I had to overcome some of my shyness and also improve my English language and teaching skills.

Scuba diving, one of my hobbies.

What's the one thing you can't live without?

Fun. Whether at work, on weekends, with my family or friends, the most important thing for me is to have fun! And there's always a way to get the most out of a situation, so you can have fun... focusing on some specific tasks, solving problems, working with team members, learning, doing mental puzzles, finding solutions to our daily challenges. If I get bored, it's over!

What is the best vacation you’ve been to?

I was lucky enough to get to know several cool places, both for work and on vacation. The coolest places I went on vacation were: South Africa and Ushuaia, in Argentinan Patagonia. Both places are full of nature, wild animals and stunning scenery. I went there with my wife and our 3 kids and we had fantastic experiences. We are also passionate about beaches and sun, but these places are unforgettable!
