Academic background and work experience
My career started as a system developer intern during my studies in an IT technical course. I got some experience with front-end and back-end development and I quickly sparked a keen interest in user interface design. In 2018 I earned a degree in Technology and Graphic Design. Following that, I worked in a digital marketing agency and on various graphic design projects before finding my true passion in UI/UX design, which led me to specialize in this field.
For the past three years, I have been working remotely for a startup in São Paulo, Brazil. I have been with the company from the beginning and played a crucial role in creating the interface and design system from scratch. Our user base has grown significantly, with around 4K weekly active users. I work closely with developers and engineers to ensure the best possible user experience. I am familiar with agile frameworks, we use Jira to create and manage development tasks for the engineers.
Through my experience at this startup and other individual projects, I have become skilled at prototyping interfaces using Figma, and I also have some experience in Sketch and Adobe XD. I believe that the path to creating exceptional user experiences is paved with empathy, organization and consistency, so I am prioritizing these principles in my work.
Recently, I had the opportunity to work on an industry e-commerce project in the UK as an UI/UX designer and product manager. As a designer, I strive to create meaningful and memorable experiences that not only solve user problems but also create emotional connections.
