Hi 👋🏼, I’m Victor, a Software Engineer with over a decade of experience, and I currently live in Montreal. I’ve started my journey a bit differently by going to law school before leaping to the marvelous world of computers.

I help develop eCommerce services for 🎮 Unity, a widely beloved company offering a robust ecosystem for game developers, artists, architects, engineers, and so much more.

Previously, I worked as part of the Payments team at ⚡️ Lightspeed, building and maintaining mission-critical microservices. We’ve served many thousand small to medium-sized businesses, facilitating onboarding, chargeback disputes, reconciliation, and fraud prevention. Our initiatives helped the company transition from an ISO to a PayFac model.

These two experiences enabled me to deep dive into high-traffic, high-availability services building. It has also allowed me to take part in two IPOs. I have also worked on smaller projects, both as a consultant and for web agencies.

I still believe that technology can be a powerful source of improvement for society and individuals. I am a longtime fan of Open Source.

My current tech stack :

  • PHP, Go, JavaScript
  • MySql/MariaDB, BigQuery
  • Docker, Kubernetes
  • GCP, AWS

A few more things:

  • 🗺 I love traveling and learning about other cultures.
  • 🇧🇷 🇨🇦 I was born in Brazil, and I live in beautiful Canada.
  • 🚲 Cycling is one of my hobbies. I’ve only learned how to ride at the age of 25.
  • ☕️ I consider myself a coffee nerd.
  • 👨🏻‍⚖️ Before becoming a developer, I got a Bachelor of Law degree.
