I have 6 years of experience with web development. I have worked in many different layers of software development, including backend, frontend, mobile and server automation. My main focus is back end and I advocate code quality, readability and maintainability. I include tests on my daily development practice, together with TDD and refactoring.

My main skill is learning, and I like to stretch it in daily challenging situations. I was lucky to have had the opportunity to join my first three jobs without knowledge of the technologies involved and have learned them. I love environments where I can grow, surrounded by smart and interesting people.

I love to code, and more specifically, I love programming languages and paradigms. In my free time, I have experimented with many programming languages and technologies, including SML, Python, Ruby, Haskell, Scala, Go, Rust, Racket, Bash, Clojure, etc and even my own language, Marco. I’m also confident working with fast delivery, continuous integration and many agile ideas. I’m fluent in Portuguese and English and also a game and music enthusiast.

I joined a team of full-stack developers at Movinga and immediately started working on a micro service and its three client applications. I was also responsible for starting a couple of frontend applications from scratch. Later we extracted a pricing micro service from the main legacy code in order to improve deployment times, frequency (from once every two weeks to 10 times a day) and provide better insights about our prices.

We developed systems for startups. It was my first experience with Rails, but also included frontend development. Since each developer was responsible for managing a whole project, our responsibilities involved coding, creating interfaces, thinking about user experience, negotiating with clients, managing infrastructure and deployment, etc.

I was one of the first people to be hired on our branch of the company, so I had the opportunity to help build the culture we wanted. I learned a lot from the experience and it helped shape some of my future career goals.
