About Me

A picture of me the mountains of Banff National Park

Hey there 👋

I’m Victor, a Software Engineer based in Montreal with over a decade of experience. I have worked for companies of different sizes, technology stacks, and verticals.

My current focus is building high-availability, cloud-native Go backend applications at Unity, a widely beloved company offering a robust ecosystem for game developers, artists, architects, engineers, athletes, and so much more. Previously I also helped the company with its new eCommerce checkout experience.

Previously, I had the privilege to work as part of the Payments team at Lightspeed, building and maintaining mission-critical microservices. We serviced thousands of small to medium-sized businesses, facilitating onboarding, chargeback disputes, reconciliation, and fraud prevention. Our initiatives helped the company transition from an ISO to a PayFac model.

Two IPOs, lots of lines of codes, mistakes, learnings, and code reviews later; I am still very excited about technology and its potential to improve the lives of individuals and make society more fair and sustainable.

My current tech stack includes: #

  • Go, Bash, PHP, JavaScript
  • PostgreSQL, MySQL/MariaDB, BigQuery, Redis
  • Docker, Kubernetes, Terraform
  • Google Cloud Platform (GCP)

A few more things: #

  • 🗺 I love traveling and learning about other cultures.
  • 🇧🇷 🇨🇦 I was born in Brazil, and I live in beautiful Canada.
  • 🚲 Cycling is one of my hobbies. I’ve only learned how to ride at the age of 25.
  • ☕️ I consider myself a coffee nerd.
  • 👨🏻‍⚖️ Before becoming a developer, I got a Bachelor of Law degree.
