Eduardo Nunes

This week we’re talking to Eduardo Nunes who is the Solution Architect of Bravi.

Hi Mr. Eduardo!

Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I think this is one of the most complex questions, it is always hard to say something about yourself, especially when it is open like this, but I will start from the beginning of everything ;). I was born in São Paulo / SP, however, I don’t consider myself Paulista. In fact,  I would say that I have no special feeling about any city, state or country, what really matters to me are the relationships you establish and how comfortable you feel. I’m 32 years old, and married since December 1st of 2012.

What’s your role in Bravi?

My role / position with Bravi is “Solutions Architect”. The Solutions Architect can also be named Software Solutions Architect. There are a plethora of different descriptions about this position, but considering Bravi’s environment, I would define it as:

– a person who is responsible for supporting directors on their decisions and  providing them with technical information regarding software solutions;
– a person who is responsible for an architect (plan) and the development of applications;
– a person who is responsible for supporting directors on the technical strategy direction of the company;

Describe your typical day.

My day starts after taking a shower, which usually happens around a half past seven am. As I have a dog (i.e. a child) there are always dog-related tasks that I don’t think is worth mentioning :D. During the day, at work, I basically attend to stand up meetings, attend to strategic meetings, estimate projects, do researches, architect software (research, plan, documentation), and develop a lot! After work, I usually go home and spend time with my wife, and when it is possible, I use my spare time to improve my knowledge.

Tell us about your team.

My team is awesome! It is the first time we are working together; however, we all have a great relationship and communication. I would say we also share the same goals and everyone is always trying to learn more, to apply best practices, and to help each other when needed. Unfortunately, I’m not sure if I will be working with the same team, actually I don’t think so, but I’m confident that all Bravi employees are high skilled and have similar working behaviours. I hope the Solutions team grows and we soon have not just one, but two or three different teams with people jumping between them, adding value to all projects.

What do you do in your free time?

Apart from enjoying my family, during my free time I usually play games, read tech books, develop apps, study a lot about software development – from programming languages to architectures, play the guitar. I’m definitely a nerd!

Tell us about where you live.

At the moment I’m living in Canasvieiras, it is a nice apartment in front of the beach. It is awesome to wake up and see the reflection of the sun on the sea, specially on the really flat canasvieiras sea, this helps me start my day in the best mood possible!

Why did you choose this career?

I had my first contact with computers when I was 10 year old, since then I have been passionate about software development. I consider myself very lucky to know what I want to do for the rest of my life, it helped guide me in the direction to have a successful career. I say that I’m very lucky because most people take a lot of time to identify what makes them happy – regarding work, and in some cases people never discover what their passions are. I am lucky to have found mine.

Who are your heroes?

I admire my parents, they gave all support I needed, especially regarding education. I also admire “doers”, everybody that works hard to achieve their goals.

Where do you see yourself and Bravi in five years?

I see myself working for Bravi in two or three key own products. I see Bravi as one of the leading software companies on e/mobile-learning domain.

Who’ll win the World Cup this year?

I have no idea!!! I hope Spain!

Thanks for your time Eduardo! We really appreciate it!
