Welcome to another of our new starters: Luis, Java Software Engineer, based in Brazil!
We found out a bit more about Luis in this quick Q+A – from his favourite piece of music for productivity, to the fact he takes advantage of his location by watching the famous Brazilian football team in action. Just make sure you don’t assume he creates spreadsheets all day…
