ūüďĘ Speakers:

José Fernandes, Head of Engineering @Motors

José truly envisions a world where engineers from junior to senior are able to release their full potential with proper leadership support and psychological safety.

Started his career as a code practitioner (AKA software developer), shifted to team lead, then IC leadership acting as an architect while bumping his head many times in order to act as a better professional. Then found what he most enjoys nowadays by helping engineering managers grow and consequently their engineers. In order for that to happen, Zé has turned into a bookworm, researching a plethora of topics from Cognitive science to Decision making through Mental models awareness and systems thinking, up to organisational design and communication efficiency, between others.

Curiosities: Z√© has 2 lovely dogs, ‚ÄúIf‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúMoulin Rouge‚ÄĚ . When he is not lazy, enjoys practising martial arts.

Angrick Capriles Torres, Senior Tech Recruiter @OLX Group

“I’m a big geek, tech-savvy, and entrepreneur myself – a hobbit size recruiter who used to be an engineer and has co-founded 2 startups related to sustainable mobility and tourism. Currently working in the Kingdom of the Bitterballen (the Netherlands), changing the recruitment game

I’m a pure BE heart – yes, the servers are my thing and I’m scaling BE teams in OLX. From Motors, OLX^2, Pay & Ship, and more recently OLX Autos.

If you ask me, I like to call myself a resourceful techy – a wizard when it comes to planning but still waiting for my letter from Hogwarts!”
