Luis Domingos: I started as a Freelancer. At the time I wanted to try out new stuff, after working some years in consultancy. Exporo had just what I wanted: a modern tech stack, good culture and challenges to overcome. Gradually responsibility and trust started to grow and we could build a cool team with people from Germany, Portugal and Poland. And even a new office in Lisbon :)
Luis Domingos: I truly like the way Exporo is not afraid to attribute responsibility and expect autonomy. And usually retribution is trust and commitment. That allowed me, and others, to grow professionally, also we felt we were innovating and “rowing the boat”. The Head of Engineering at that time, my predecessor, and other seniors in the company are really good mentors, and not afraid to do that.
Luis Domingos: I would say don’t forget to care. Speak with people and participate in their day-to-day challenges. And learn a lot about technology, finance, and also people! Those are the best parts.
Luis Domingos: We all love the knowledge we inherited and built. There is a lot of knowledge here :) Plus the ability to shape things. The vibe is really good!
Luis Domingos: I personally have grown so much when I look back. It’s to work in a cutting edge tech stack and learn with the best in this business.
Luis Domingos: People who like to program, design and think and talk and feel well.
Luis Domingos: They surely would not be chess or tennis players. Knowing the value of doing things together is so important, in my opinion.
Luis Domingos: I’m just a guy, but also a unique person that will never ever exist again :) so…”hopefully nice person”.
