2011 – 2017

Co-founder & Lead Designer @ MATILHA

MATILHA is a digital product design studio that I've co-founded to work with companies as a one-stop-shop for everything from user research to building web and mobile apps. Leading projects at MATILHA was one of the most rewarding experiences I had because I was privileged to work with a lot of different business models, technologies, methodologies, and mediums. These are some selected work that I worked on that period:

2012 – 2017

Co-founder & Lead Designer @ minestore

I co-founded minestore as a side project to solve the frustrations I’ve faced when creating an online store for my father’s company. All tools seemed too complicated to operate for someone with no previous experience in e-commerce and technology. So my goal was to remove all the complexity and focus only in what was needed to run someone’s first online store.

Product Designer @ Social Wave

Social Wave was born in 2016 with the goal of connecting music festivals and nightclubs with ambassadors and their friends. We built a solution that allows ambassadors to sell tickets and also connect with other people to attend these events together.

Product Designer @ Pipefy

Pipefy is one of the most powerful process management tools available in the market today. I led the first design when it was still on early stage. We worked side by side with the founders, conceiving the first MVP of the product that is now present in more than 120 countries.

Product Designer @ Configr

With Configr I went through an acceleration program of 21212, Brazil's biggest startup accelerator located in Rio de Janeiro. The whole process and learning that I've had from other companies who were on the same batch was really a turning point in my career.
