What I do

Currently I'm working for Unbabel as a Backend Software Developer.

Developing the world's translation layer, using Golang.

In the past I have worked for as an Embedded Software Engineer.

Snido specialized in Industrial Life Safety Systems and Fire detection solutions, and helped develop the next generation Fire Detection Panels and IoT devices.

In my first months I've started developing display interfaces for PIC microcontrollers with C.

And then became responsible for the research and development of our Fire Detection System's Gateway using Embedded Linux (Yocto and OpenEmbedded), Golang, C and Vue.js.

I also contributed to Snido Cloud Application by developing the backend modules related to IoT, using Golang and Postgres.

What I like doing

Developing API's, backend development, general IoT, embedded systems development, pentesting web and embedded applications.

Also the research and development of prototypes, I equally love building and breaking stuff.
