Why did you join Nexllence, and what has kept you here?

Before joining Nexllence, I studied Computer Engineering at university and I knew that I wanted my career to be in Software Development. It was at Nexllence that I started my professional career as a developer. Nexllence gave me the opportunity to join a great team and embrace their projects as well as its goals.

Nexllence is a professional challenge, which I embraced without hesitation and in doing so, I was able to join a qualified team that has helped me grow professionally and personally. Every day, we have new challenges proposed that make us learn, grow, innovate and overcome ourselves to be better.

The excellent spirit of collaboration and companionship is difficult to find nowadays. These are key parts of success for me and Nexllence has shown that it is possible to find them here.

How has Nexllence helped you in your career development?

As my first professional experience, Nexllence has helped me a lot with the integration into the working world, and always supported me in my development within the company. To integrate in the world of IT, Nexllence taught me to work as a team and to cooperate with colleagues. This company has also helped me get my bearings in meetings with clients.

Putting me in projects with more experienced developers helped me learn new methods of development and how to better manage the task development times. As a developer, Nexllence offers me training and certification opportunities, for the development of new skills and growth of others for my role.

How do I stay motivated at Nexllence?

As a developer, challenges are proposed to me every day which make me learn new things. This helps my growth at a professional and a personal level. This is something that motivates me.

Throughout my professional development, it is important for me to learn new technologies and tools that can help me fulfill the tasks that are proposed to me. Nexllence gave me the opportunity to learn new skills and perfect what I already knew.

How do you spend your time outside of the office?

Most of my workday is spent sitting in a chair, so exercising, doing workouts, and walking outdoors with friends or family is what makes me feel better. When I need to relax and recharge from a week of work, I like to take walks on the beach. Favourably, at times when the beach has less people around. On the weekend, I like to enjoy my time and embark on activities with my family. It was in these activities that I discovered my passion for the seventh art, and now film sessions are often part of our plans.

When are you the happiest?

When I think of being at my happiest, a lot of thoughts come into mind, depending on whether they are moments on a professional or personal level. I am a person who tries to set goals to achieve, either at moments in my personal life or at work. So, something that makes me really happy is when I consider that I have achieved those goals. Also, on a more personal level, I feel happy when I'm surrounded by my family and friends and we can share fun moments, whether at meals or other kinds of meetings.

If you were an animal, what would you be?

If I were an animal, whilst considering its psychological characteristics, I'd be a little unsure about my choice as there are two options; a beaver or a dog.

A beaver defines itself as a hardworking, dedicated and organized animal, this can be seen because they do not hibernate but work in their dams all year round. These are characteristics that I identify with.

On the other hand, a dog is an animal that likes to explore, is intelligent and easily learns what is taught to them. They are animals that are concerned about others and that easily adapt to different situations. This is something that is also part of my essence.

What's one of your favorite quotes, or motto?
