Amazing things Renato's made
I've worked for a software company that, when I started to work there, was a small startup. Very little organization, all the software development was adhoc. I managed to get support from the general manager and all shareholder to invest in a project to organize the company and appraise the company in CMMI-Dev level 3. After 1 year we achieved successfully the level 2 and one and a half year latter the Level 3. The difficult part of this was change the company culture and the way people worked. More than an investment project, it was a transformation one. In the end, we had a very different company. It was more focused, with more consistent results, and with less effort from the people to achieve better results.

Ricardo Costa CEO at loqr

Renato is one amazing professional. With several years of expertise leading multi-cultural team across several national and international projects and, most recently, in architecting, from scratch, new business solutions with the objective of solving clients’ real problems, he would be, definitely, a great asset to any size organisation (and startup)!

Renato is an highly focused and productive professional. I had the pleasure to meet and work with him both in the university and in freelance projects (IT development related). We had an e-commerce business together and all I can say is positive about him. Highly recommend!

Elsa Dias Digital Marketing and Social Media Manager at LG Electronics recommended AppyBook where Renato is Co-Founder

I've been working with Bruno for more than 10 years ans he is, for sure, one of the most trustworthy professionals I ever worked with. A great team member, a huge human being. One of the few I would ever trust to work along and open a business owned by myself. He will never let tou down.

José Pereira recommended AppyBook where Renato is Co-Founder

Bruno has a very strong grasp of information technology, specially in the realm of Internet services.

He has the ability of conceiving solutions for all types of projects, and is a great problem solver.

He has the ability to integrate teams of any size and is an excellent team player.

Bruno is, without a doubt, a very big asset for any team.
