Hello! Tudo bem? We are an Anglo-Brazilian team based in Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, Brasil and we work remotely for TribalUK, a software company with offices all over the world. We communicate in English and Portuguese via Tribalingua, the language development department situated in our Brazilian branch. Here`s a quick look at who we are…

 Alex Gimenez  alexgimenez

I’m Alex Gimenez, 23 years old and I live in Florianópolis, Santa Catarina. I was born in Nova Olímpia, a little city situated in the north of the Paraná state, but I moved out from there when I was 2 years old. Since then I`ve lived in different cities, but a large part of my life I lived in Cianorte, also in Paraná state. I became interested in computing when I was 13, and a year later I also became interested in drums and electric guitar, having been in a few bands since then. Besides music and traveling, Im also into surfing here in Florianópolis.

 André Sato
はじめまして!佐藤アンドレ修と申します。私はブラジル日系人です。23歳までブラジルで住んでそして東京に9年間過ごしました。二年間後またブラジルにやってきました!どうぞ宜しくお願いします!
 Hi there! I am André, and as you can see, a Japanese descendant. I’ve spent some years in Japan, and now I am back again. I really enjoy this international environment, have been in a lot of countries in Asia and Europe and I hope to visit some here in South America soon. Aside from travelling, I like to play sports, specially tennis and play video games. I was born here in Floripa, but I never had worked here, so this is a new experience and I am very excited with it!
 Antonio  Antonio Campos

I’m Antonio, 27 years old, I’m from Rio de Janeiro but have lived close to Florianópolis since I was a kid. I’ve been working as a software developer since 2007 and love to talk about programming, software architecture, team building and nerd stuff. I’ve been working at Bravi since October 2013 and it’s been a great experience! I’ve focused on improving my english skills and agile knowledge since then.

 Bill  Bill

Hi, I’m Bill (though my mom will tell you I’m Emanuel). My passions in life are music (though my skills are very poor), games (those skills are a little better), stories (like books), and, of course, programming. Software development isn’t just a job for me, it’s also a hobby. And quite a fun one, at that! Still, on my free time I’d rather watch a nice TV show. Be aware that I’m also very ambitious: If you check back on me in a few years, I’m hoping you’ll find me finally playing the guitar like a rock star. And rich.

 Bruna  Bruna Carlos

Bruna: I was born in 1990 and from there to here, nothing has changed much – except the fact I put some weight, had grown a few centimeters and started to work and earn my own money. Everything started in a small town called Cachoeirinha – it is funny that this city is written in the diminutive in Portuguese – is this a coincidence or am I starting being paranoid? – and it will end somewhere in the world, far away from this city and from where I live at the moment. But that’s a subject for a posthumous biography, not for this one.

 BrunoLM  Bruno Michels

Hi, I’m Bruno (known on the internet as BrunoLM and when playing games I am known as Knx). One of my main hobbies is to develop software, solve logic problems, do some coding… I like to participate on Stack Overflow, at the same time I am sharing my knowledge I am acquiring more. I’ve learnt a lot from it. I also like to watch TV Series (usually something with action or comedy), watch Animes, read Mangas and play games.

 Bruno Quintella  Bruno Quintella

My name is Bruno Quintella. Born in 1986, I am first son. Grew up in the midwest area of Brazil, Cuiaba. I had graduated in Accounting but always work as developer. I’ve been living in Florianópolis since one year ago.  I came to Florianópolis to work at Bravi. I’m member of Charpenings and we’re working with EBS system. I’m engaged, my fiancée Karina, is an English teacher. I like sports and play video games. Florianópolis is a good city for who like sports, there are a lot of options. Currently I play football once per week and I’m starting bodyboard.

 Bruno Wolff
Bruno Wolff

Hey, my name is Bruno Wolff. I’m from Lages, just like half a dozen people here (hãme). I moved to Florianópolis to work at Bravi, and it’s been such a pleasure since then. In general, I’m a quiet person (too much, sometimes…) and very methodic, but I do love some laughs and parties with my buddies. Still trying to play my guitar well, but I’m happy that I can play some songs from my favorite bands (basically: Foo Fighters, QOTSA and Oasis). Recently, I was introduced to Surfboarding, and I hope I can practice that more often, the feeling was as good as riding a nice motorcycle (different person, different feelings, huh?), which is one of my favorite hobbies. And yes, I love geek stuff and programming (that’s why I’m working with it),  especially with a nice, cold beer.

Cecilia

 Hello! My name is Cecilia, I’m 24 years old and from a very small city called Napa Valley in Northern California, USA. I graduated from Chico State university with a bachelor degree in Latin American studies and Health Science Education. I’ve lived in Brazil for a year and a half now and have fallen in love with Florianópolis.
I teach English for Bravi Software and have really enjoyed getting to know all of my students.
I live for travel, health, and discovering culture! On my free time I like dancing, cooking, being outside and spending time with my friends. Cheers!

 Daniel  daniel

Daniel: My life has begun 2 months earlier than expected. My mother gave birth almost 8 weeks early the planned date. I am the first of three brothers. I had a very good childhood in a italian descendant family used to have lunch together all sundays in the grandma’s house. I was always interested by machines and how they work. I had a wish to be mechanical engineer and invent something really interesting that could be used by people. Time passed and I discovered the computers and when I have had to apply to a university I decided to do something related to them. From that time to today I have experienced different jobs in different companies and also different places from Brazil. Talking about things I enjoy to do it is fair to mention listen music and surfing. Although I don’t look like a person who loves extreme music my favourite bands can be labeled as Black Metal bands. Groups like Marduk, Satyricon, Dark Funeral and Darktrhone populates my playlist. Less than a year I discovered surfing. After moved to Florianópolis with my wife and son I took some classes and in the very first classes I already started to feel the pleasure of being at sea and feel the freedom. After some time saving money I bought my own surfboard and now I can go surfing whenever I want by myself.

 Danilo  garcia

My name is Danilo Garcia, I’m 26 years old and I’m from Rio de Janeiro. I’ve been living in Florianopolis for the past 9 years. I love video games, role-playing games, board games, football, martial arts and most recently cricket. I’m a developer and I’ve been working with software for 4 years. I’ve been working at Bravi for 8 months and it has been a great experience. My English skills increased a lot since then and I hope to keep progressing it. As a final message I want to say: Go Lions!

 Douglas Almeida Douglas Almeida - Avatar

Hello, my name is Douglas Almeida, but you can call me Doug. I was born in 1985 in Uruguaiana, Rio Grande do Sul, situated on the border between Brazil and Argentina. I am a gaucho as well as many other people at Bravi. I have lived in many different cities because of my father’s job as follows: Brasília from 1997 to 2004, Caracas – Venezuela from 2004 to 2006, and Curitiba from 2006 to 2011. In Curitiba, in March of 2012, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from University Federal of Paraná (UFPR). Afterwards finish my studies, I moved to Florianopolis in 2012 in order to live nearby my family, which fortunately I got. Because I have lived in many different places, I have become more open to learning new ideas, accepting new cultures and having new experiences. I am passionate for technology and sports and I really like learning about these subjects. Frequently I seek to access new content related to technology and try to be always playing sports in general, even knowing some different sports. I am happy in Florianópolis and I feel very proud to belong to Bravi!

 Gabriel Siedler siedler

I’m Gabriel and I am a jiu-jistu fighter, football, basketball, voleyball, tennis and beerlifting player, but I am only good at the last one! I was born in 1988, in Pelotas, but non-practicing (inside joke, sorry). I gratuated from Computer Science in 2013 at the Federal University of Pelotas, where I worked as a researcher in Digital Video Compression and Machine Learning in Artificial Intelligence. I love reading books, watching TV series, playing PC games and almost everything else.

 

Hi, I’m Natacha! I was born and raised in the Florianopolis area in 1989. I love music (I even try to play a little bit), movies and video games. I have been a “geek” since I can remember and that drove me into the IT area. I started working in IT around 2008, and so far have worked with infrastructure, software development process quality and improvement and software development management, but have never sat on the developer side. 🙂 Joining Bravi is a great new challenge and I’m thrilled to be joining the team!

 Gabriela gabi

My name is Gabriela, I’m 28 years old and I’m working with administration at Bravi. The main characteristic that I have is to be a calm person. I like to be at home or reading a nice book. Going out with friends, to me, means laughing about nonsense and drinking some beers. I was born in Orleans. It’s a very little city in Santa Catarina but at the moment, I live in Florianópolis with my family. The future? God only knows!  But I hope find true happiness, professional satisfaction and individual peace.

 hemerson_veras  hemerson

I am Hemerson Carlin. I’m from Cascavel city in Paraná state.
Things I like most? Well, music, some sports and, of course, computers!
I spent 10 years of my life playing music around my city (yeah! Just like a rock star, but in a very small scale =] )
I’m graduated in keyboard, 2 years of popular piano and finally my love, the accordion.
As a truly brazilian, I like football. But I also love formula 1.
Computers have always had their part in my life. When I was a child, I wanted to know how their applications behave, even if I had to press all the buttons and had to click all the places on screen to find out.
I’m graduated in Computer Science and post-graduate in Technologies for Business Intelligence.
To work at Bravi is a great opportunity and a challenging thing for me. I feel really proud of it.
I currently live in Florianópolis with my wife and our little English Cocker Spaniel.

My name is Kristof; I was born in the blessed year of 1983 in Mechelen, a small city in Belgium. That’s right, I’m Belgian! I moved to Florianópolis in March of 2013 and I really like living here. My free time is spent watching movies and series, playing some video games and I also regularly go for a walk or a run. I first came into contact with computers when I was about 11. I was immediately fascinated, but the decision to build my career in this field only came when I was 17. After finishing high-school, I went on to get a bachelor’s degree in IT. In my native country, I mostly worked in technical support, although I have always been interested in programming and software development. I’m very happy to be at Bravi now. I learn something new every day and I can’t imagine a better place to work.

I was born under the sign of Leo, no, I don´t believe in this horoscope stuff, I just thought it would be fun to talk about it here.
