Jorge’s Journey

Jorge’s Journey

by Manuel Vilhena, 6 August, 2018

After 4 years with several clients I had the necessity to search for one exciting project that I could focus and dig dip into the client’s processes. I received contacts of many other companies, but Lisbon Nearshore’s approach, coupled with a world-class project, convinced me the most.

Hi!

My name is Jorge and currently I am a SAP/Angular Developer at LisbonNearshore. In this text, I will tell you a bit about my career journey.

I started as a web developer in a startup focused on software development. There, I worked mainly with Drupal for small businesses.

After six months, I had the opportunity to join an International IT Consultancy organization and started working with SAP as a SAP ABAP Developer for different kinds of businesses.

After two years, I accepted a challenge and I moved to Switzerland for 9 months to work with SAP/AngularJS and I was the first person for this new client. I loved the international experience, I felt that when you are “alone”, and when everything changes (language, places, persons, culture) the technical challenges at work are the smallest of your problems.

When I returned to Portugal, I started working with OData and Fiori because the demand was very high and I already had experience with Frontend technologies and SAP.

Afterwards, I decided it was time to make a change and accepted the challenge Lisbon Nearshore presented me with. After 4 years with several clients I had the necessity to search for one exciting project that I could focus and dig dip into the client’s processes. I received contacts of many other companies, but Lisbon Nearshore’s approach, coupled with a world-class project, convinced me the most.

It had:

– an international client, which necessarily includes occasional trips abroad (those are two things I love).

– the tech stack that I will play with is very exciting, I love to work with new technologies.

– The mindset of the company is really “different”. Being a young and innovative company, everyone is very open-minded and creative.

So here I am today, and loving every minute of it!
