João is from Braga and is currently in the last year of the Integrated Master’s Degree in Engineering and Management of Information Systems at the University of Minho. He joined JTA as a Data Scientist in the summer of 2021.
Why did you choose JTA?
I first met JTA at a career fair at my university. I was immediately interested in the company because of the environment and dynamics I felt among the workers who spoke to me. When I had the opportunity to join the company as a Data Scientist, I felt it was the perfect opportunity for me.
What is the most unusual fact about you that not a lot of people know?
I love magic, although I’m not very good at it yet.
What would we be likely to find you doing at the weekend?
Besides studying for my master’s degree, you will probably find me doing sports, hanging out with my friends or just spending time with my family.
What is your party trick?
At first I am a bit shy, but once I feel comfortable, I can make people uninhibited with humor.
Where is your favorite holiday destination?
At the moment my favorite holiday destination is Palma de Mallorca, however, my dream destination is Thailand.
