Can you tell us something about yourself?
My name is Aline, I’m 25 years old, and I was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. In 2006, I moved to Lisbon, and I’ve lived here with my mom ever since. I’ve always been intrigued and fascinated by technology and the possibilities it offers, which led me to pursue a college degree in Computer Engineering.
Why did you join IG&H?
My main motivation was that I wanted to work in a dynamic, challenging environment where I could create value using OutSystems. I also hoped to find a company where I could grow and learn on a consistent basis. IG&H is listed as one of the greatest places to work, which was a huge motivator for me. I believe engaged employees get more work done and book better results.
What are your responsibilities?
I’m an OutSystems consultant. Currently, I’m working on a project for a company in the travel industry. Our multidisciplinary project team has adopted Agile methodology (Scrum), so I get to experience the dynamics and processes of this way of working. Together, we help the client deliver an innovative solution for booking trips. The project is comprehensive: it will probably take at least a year to complete. I find it challenging, but the team’s close collaboration helps a lot.
What does your typical working day look like?
You’ll likely find me at the office before 8 am. After my co-workers have arrived, we kick off the day with a meeting to discuss a few essentials: the things we’ve done yesterday, the issues we need to tackle today, and any difficulties that might hinder our progress. We spend the rest of the day developing. After work, I like to go to the gym, watch a movie, or read a book.
