1) Who is António?
Hi! I’m Antonio! I live in Chamusca (a Portuguese village in Ribatejo), and I’m a proud father of a 3-year-old girl (soon going to be the father of a boy too). I’m a little reserved person, but, nonetheless, I take the most of all small pleasures of life.
2) How was your academic career?
At first, my academic career was a bit tricky. Coming from science (high school) I’ve quickly follow into computer engineering. Interestingly, I even had more ease in mathematics, which I did first. At one point, I had what I call the Neo moment (from Matrix). And the programming chairs, in which I once had many difficulties, became easy.
3) António’s career path… so far!
My first professional experience was in Accenture, where I had to wear a suit and tie to go to work. A short time later, I moved to BNP Paribas, where it was no longer necessary to wear a suit, but there was still a need for the dress code to be taken care of… in this “smart casual”. Then, I still went through Brisa, where you could already wear t-shirts. But, at this moment, at Texter Blue, I work manly from home, where the dress code is the most demanding… shorts and slippers! An interesting evolution, don’t you think?!
4) António’s role inside Texter Blue?
At this moment, I’m allocated in a project of Afresco, in the Customer Excellence team, where we support customers. Other than that, I also give the necessary support to Jhonny Aldeia, and to the maintenance of the internal project Texport – Alfresco Exports & Imports.
5) António’s life outside Texter Blue?
In my spare time, I usually play with my daughter, and occasionally I watch some series. Also, recently I also discovered the taste for DIY (do-it-yourself)!
