WHAT IS IT THAT YOU DO AT THE TECHNO CREATIVES?
I am a developer helping translate the designers crazy ideas in working applications ;-) and implement the foundations for a successful product.
WHAT WERE YOU DOING BEFORE YOU CAME TO WORK AT THE TECHNO CREATIVES?
Before, I was a software developer for 5 years at Nokia Institute of Technology (INDT) in Brazil. I worked on the development of applications for Nokia and Microsoft phones, like Nokia Transit for S40 and Digital TV for Windows Phone. Those applications had to run in a constrained environment where you have to continue balance performance and resource management.
CAN YOU DESCRIBE THE BIGGEST DIFFERENCE IN YOUR DAILY LIFE SINCE YOU STARTED WORKING AT THE TECHNO CREATIVES?
There was lots of changes since I moved from another country to work here. But one of the big differences was that we work much faster here. We don’t have complex management structures that put distance between us and our clients. So it easy to understand why we are doing something in the context of the project. Another thing that I like here is that is very easy to talk with everyone and exchange ideas.
WHAT DO YOU FIND TO BE AN IMPORTANT FACTOR OF A WORK CULTURE?
Freedom and trust. I think people need to have freedom to act. Freedom to search alternative solutions and to express without worry of being penalised. Trust is necessary for healthy team work. You need to trust that your teammates are doing their best, everyone has problems once in a while. We are all human, you have to be able to help at those times.
