Joao SantosColleague

Working one year alongside João Costa in a Business Intelligence team of an e-commerce booking company (Jovago), I found him a quite resourceful and multidisciplinar professional. He was crucial setting up the architecture and defining a working methodology on which Jovago’s BI team stills drives its everyday’s processes. His enormous curiosity and ability to easily learn new techonologies/processes makes him a professional that never settles for the easiest path and that can adapt to every situation. On a personal level he fit very well inside our team and, a year after, I am glad to be able to call him a friend.

Frederic RougemontDirect Manager

Joao worked for me as Product Owner to extend and support one of our core logistic software. He is a reliable and hardworking guy who pays high attention to every single detail to make sure to clearly identify customer needs. Withing strong Agile methodology skills he grabs the instructions and organize proper implementation plan within the development teams. I do recommend him to anyone. He can be a great asset to any company.

Andre SilvaColleague

I strongly recommend my colleague João Costa. I had the pleasure of working alongside him. During our collaboration, João showed a great sense of responsability and commitment to meeting the demands on the deadline, he is very professional and takes on all assignments with enthusiasm and dedication. His strongest points are self-taught and be ready to help someone in trouble. For me João is highly qualified to act as web developer. Sincerely, André Silva
