Gabriel Carvalho (aka Gabs) | Front End Developer
Today, we’ll introduce you to Gabriel, who recently joined the company from Fortaleza, Brazil! Being from such a sunny, beachy town, he sure loves working from home. But we’re hoping to bring him to Canada soon — we have sun and beaches here too, ya know.
Gabriel has been working with us since January and — fun fact — he reconnected with a former colleague from Brazil (who you’ll also meet in a few weeks from now!)
“I wouldn’t have grown if I didn’t have a great opportunity in my hands. And that’s what Aequilibrium offered me.”
Our conversation with Gabs
Why did you want to work at Aequilibrium?
Actually, I was surprised when Josh (Recruitment & Onboarding Lead) talked to me. It was really unexpected since I had just congratulated a former workmate and friend (now a current workmate again, haha) for his new job at Aequilibrium. After that, the whole process started and I saw myself wanting this job so much, as this would be my first job abroad and 100% remote work.
As a Front End Developer, what’s your typical day like?
Due to the pandemic, I work from home mostly coding or looking for solutions to attend to the clients’ needs. I also get to work with a bunch of incredible folks from all around the world, each with their own culture, perspectives, and expertise in coding. By the end of the day, it’s rewarding as I evolve a little bit more… every day! Did I mention that I work from home?
What’s the most rewarding part about working here?
Well, there’s the fact that I have two teams to be a part of: Aequilibrium and Backbase, and there’s the fact that I can work 100% remotely. So I would say it’s a tricky question. Let’s call it a tie.
How is your current job different from previous jobs you’ve had?
New experiences, new folks, new opportunities to grow even more. See, I really liked my previous jobs, I’ve made a lot of friends and I learned a lot in the past 10 years or so, and I had a great time all those years, but one thing I had in mind was that I wouldn’t have grown if I didn’t have a great opportunity in my hands. And that’s what Aequilibrium offered me.
How would you describe us?
A growing company with great opportunities, lots of good people doing their very best to make us feel a part of a greater good.
