Senior Software Engineer

Contractor
React / Node.JS

At Meta, I work within Kustomer, a platform that allows businesses to manage all their communication channels in one place.

Zé Delivery

/ Anheuser-Busch InBev

Frontend Engineer III

React / React Native / Node.JS

Zé Delivery is Brazil's largest beverage delivery app, with millions of users, powered by Anheuser-Busch InBev. In this role, I contributed to the development of a better user experience in the main application as part of the Consumer Purchase team, focusing on improving user price perception and conversion. During this time, I reduced technical debt by refactoring the "browse" feature, which accounted for about 1/3 of the application, significantly decreasing development delivery time. I also developed a robust implementation for handling deep links, boosting our marketing campaigns, and assisted in creating Mozeic, our design system that is currently under construction. Additionally, I interviewed potential team members and created a new API for our Code Challenge using Node.js.
