I am happy to share that I have recently started a new professional adventure at the Claranet Portugal, an inter-continental company with offices and business in UK, Brasil, Italy, France, Spain, Benelux, Germany & of course Portugal. I am working as a Cloud Data Engineer, helping great companies to optimise their data strategy in the cloud – helping to migrate and get the best out of what the different Data Platforms provide.
Nothing changes in my relationship with the best data platform in the world (Azure & SQL DB / SQL Server), which is why I am already taking a number of clients on the exciting journey there. Besides the usual things I already know, I am looking to learn about the other cloud solutions and their advantages, and it excites me to feel like a kind of a newcomer.
I have known the wonderful group of people with whom I am working for some time, and besides some obvious factors (such as that I can walk from home to the company office), work with different cloud providers (Azure, AWS, GCP), learn different Data Platforms, the most important thing for me is that I can finally bring & share my knowledge in my country, again.
Oh and by the way, the difference to the other opportunities was that they have shown an interest & respect – a real interest & human respect, and that was enough.
No matter how long this journey will last – wether 6 months, 1 year or 10 years – I am jumping into the new exciting projects, and some of my close friends know – I am really excited about it. I am looking to learn a lot on this journey and there are so many factors that can help me to grow as a person, and after all this is one of the most important things for me right now.
