We are thrilled to announce our new Data Scientists, Ana Macedo (known as Guida) and João Ferreira!
Guida has a master’s degree in Mathematics at the University of Porto and worked as researcher. She performed statistical analysis regarding genomes and brain activity, in order to help diagnose Alzheimer ‘s disease.
Guida loves music and a good hike in the middle of nowhere. She cannot go on vacation without her favorite travelling buddy, the ukulele. Apparently, Guida will soon be forming a JTA band!
João comes from Guimarães where he first obtained a master’s degree in Engineering and Management of Information Systems and then worked as a Full Stack Developer. In fact, JTA is his first work experience outside of his hometown and he will mainly be designing and developing Power BI Custom Visualizations.
João is a huge football fan, being JTA’s only true supporter of Sporting. As a goalkeeper, he won the college futsal tournament at Minho University, twice. Nevertheless, João is most known for being a party animal. You won’t find him at home during weekends for sure.
The hiring of Guida and João fits well with JTA’s strategy to hire more mathematicians and to showcase our custom visualization expertise.
Best of luck to you both. We are sure that you will find working as a data scientist at JTA a unique and amazing experience.
