Techlead : André’s story //

André spent 5 years studying Communication and Information Technologies at the University of Aveiro. After getting his graduation, he got a job as a web developer and designer at the Institute of Telecommunications in Aveiro, where he stayed for 2 years.

After those 2 years, André felt the need to look for a more challenging job. He joined a software company for 4 years, and then did outsourcing for another 4 years as a fullstack developer. These challenges turn out to be very fulfilling! André even won 2 international awards for “Medigraf” a medical project to do remote diagnosis and consultations – one at the Broadband Infovision Awards 2013 in the category “Changing Lives” and AfricaCom 2013 in the same category!

Before joining Apside, in December 2019, André spent a year working on retail projects as an API specialist for a software company.

Why did you choose Apside?

“One day, I heard about Apside, a French company setting up an agency in Aveiro, whose mission was to bring diverse projects to this area and great opportunities. I decided to join the company and help them grow the team, and be part of those exciting projects. So far I have worked on a numbers assignments, across different industries from insurance, to cosmetics, sport timing software which was the most interesting one.”
