About my latest achievements

Well, after a long time with my blog out-of-date, I have some good news: I'm joining ThoughtWorks Brazil!
I passed for a long but enjoyable and challenging hiring process, with many interviews that evaluated not only my technical skills, but also my personal profile, such as my personality, aptitude, attitude and integrity. It was the first time I felt really assessed during a process to join a company (although I haven't have many experiences with hiring process – TW will be my first job!).
For those who don’t know, ThoughtWorks is a global IT consultancy that is really well known in the software development community. It’s being one of global leaders in enterprise Agile development services and seems to work really hard to attract and keep just the brightest, passionate and talented people working there! They take pride on their hiring process and now I understand why. ThoughtWorks inspires companies and professionals around the world by delivering high quality projects and contributing to open source projects.

 I have recently accepted their offer and I’m going to start with the company in June, with an awesome opportunity of going to India to be a trainer in an “immersion” process called ThoughtWorks University. It’ll be six weeks learning, facing challenges, and meeting awesome people from different nationalities and culture! I’m really excited to be joining a company with an amazing culture and working with so many brilliant minds!
I had a great time here at INPE, where I had the chance to learning a lot during this year of experience, but now it’s time to give a step ahead and face this opportunity to move from Sao Paulo to Porto Alegre to gain maturity and have the responsibility of live alone, and the most important: to start my professional career in a company like ThoughtWorks - I could not ask for a better learning experience!
I intend to post here my experiences while I’m in Bangalore and when I have a time for it!
So, that’s it! Wish me luck! =)
