Experienced IT Manager with expertise in data-related technologies.


What I'm looking for

I am looking for a job that offers a supportive and collaborative company culture, challenging responsibilities, and opportunities for career growth. I thrive in environments that value innovation and encourage continuous learning. I am particularly interested in roles that involve data analysis, machine learning, and project management.

I am a dual citizen of Brazil and Italy, and I highly value individuals and believe in fostering a supportive shared environment to bring out the best abilities in each person. With 20+ years of IT experience, I have a strong background in data-related technologies, particularly in SQL, Python, and its libraries. I have a hands-on approach to technical work and a business-focused mindset, always striving to bring value and results. I believe that every research, action, and technology should have a clear purpose that will bring direct or indirect benefit.

In my current role as an IT Manager at POSITIVO Tecnologia, I lead a team of PMs, POs, SMs, and SW related Architects. I am responsible for managing projects related to Research, Development, and Innovation, which involve non-trivial product development using AI, ML, and similar solutions. I collaborate with different business areas to understand their needs and provide out-of-the-box solutions. I define strategies focused on ROI, value delivery, and team empowerment. I also interact with third-party innovation institutes and present results and status to the executive board.

Prior to my current role, I worked as a Data Science Project Manager and Solution Architect at POSITIVO Tecnologia. I was responsible for creating an e-commerce Data Warehouse, developing a product recommendation feature using Python and machine learning, and creating an internal wiki page to facilitate information sharing among different areas. I have a strong focus on business value and have developed extensive skills in statistical analysis, agile methodology, technical and managerial communication, strategy, project management, leadership, and people management.
