Beyond Pricing HQ is in San Francisco but we are also growing our team internationally. We are excited to welcome Portugal-based André and Pedro to our Development Team!
André was born on Madeira Island and has called Porto home for the last eight years. He started living the life of a minimalist a year ago and has been focusing on leaving meaningless stuff behind, both physical and digital (you won’t find him on any social networks). This allows him to focus his attention on positive people and experiences.
He started his own web hosting and development company when he was 15 years old and sold it seven years later. He joins us as a Software Engineer and has previously worked at Talkdesk and NDrive. He is a self-described polyglot, but you will usually find him programming in Python, Ruby and recently Elixir.
He exercises every day and loves to listen to music from the 80s and 90s while working out. Think Yazoo, Bruce Springsteen and Disco :)
On why he joined Beyond Pricing:
I love learning continuously, being challenged and making things happen. I joined Beyond Pricing because itʼs a disruptive idea. I love challenging the notion that being 100% booked well in advance would be good for business. What also really caught my eye was the completely different approach the company has regarding people and the challenges we have for the future.
PS: Did we mention that he loves riding scooters?
Pedro is a Northman from Portugal and lives in a small town called Penafiel. He’s the father of two young daughters, who, while stealing most of the hours of his day he has allocated for sleep, also give him large bundles of joy (and some occasional bags of headaches).
He has a background in electrical engineering and computer science and has been working in the software industry for a long time. He has co-founded two startups, worked at two consultancy agencies, and most recently worked at Talkdesk.
He considers himself to be a big kid who never lost the joy of daydreaming after watching movies like Star Wars, Indiana Jones and Lord of the Rings. He still likes building cool things with Legos. Ever since he saw his first ZX Spectrum he has loved to learn and tinker with new programming languages and frameworks.
On why he joined Beyond Pricing:
A good friend of mine once told me his definition for an awesome startup that I have borrowed since then"
"It’s a wonderful place where you build amazing tools that give superpowers to their customers, surrounded by a team of good souls that know and like what they are doing."
I’ve been searching for that place for quite some time. My friend Nizar kept mentioning the great experience he was having working at Beyond Pricing and daring me to have a conversation with the CTO, David.
I passed on the invitation for a few times but always wondered if he could be right. I gave it a shot, and after a couple of inspiring talks with David, I felt that it could be a good experience.
A couple of months have passed since I’ve joined and I have to be honest, I only have one big regret ... not listening to the advice to join Beyond Pricing sooner.
We are always looking for talented people to join our team! Find out more about working with us at Beyond Pricing.
