Founder & CEO at Awari (YC W21)
São Paulo, BR
I'm currently running Awari. We're backed by industry-leading investors, and we're bridging the talent gap in Brazil by helping people learn new skills with effective education. We've helped hundreds of students land jobs at top companies and advance their careers in tech. My background is in product design. I've previously worked with vc-backed startups such as Shogun (YC W18), Toptal, and Candidate Labs (a16z), as well as enterprise clients such as Google, Colgate, NBCU and Viacom.
