Carolina is from Braga and currently working as a Data Scientist at JTA. She is in the final year of her master’s degree in Engineering and Management of Information Systems at the University of Minho.
Why did you choose JTA?
My favorite subjects at university were all Business Intelligence related. I always knew that I wanted to work for a company in the Data Science area. I came across JTA’s work from Daniela, the head of data visualization. She sold me on the idea of a company that would allow me to work in the area that I wanted, and she wasn’t overselling! Learning about the experiences of other JTA employees helped my decision. It is great that the company is understanding about my student status and I can continue to study while working. I’ve chosen JTA and I don’t regret my choice!
What is the most unusual fact about you that not a lot of people know?
I was born and raised in the fashion and textile world. As a result I developed a creative and aesthetic side that not a lot of people know about.
What would we be likely to find you doing at the weekend?
Besides working on my master’s thesis, I’m a tele addict so you would probably find me watching Netflix, planning my next trip or getting out with my friends and family.
What is your party trick?
My friends are always messing around with me because I know the lyrics from almost any song you want me to sing, old or new.
Where is your favorite holiday destination?
My favorite and last holiday was in Greece. I immediately fell in love with the Mediterranean and the amazing historic buildings. However, I can’t not mention the Azores since it was my favorite gastronomical holiday experience. I can’t wait to go back and visit more islands, whether Greece or the Azores, I don’t really mind!
