Rafael is an entrepreneur and developer with extensive experience in server management, leading teams, Ruby on Rails, and front-end development. He is highly motivated, creative, and efficient, with an eye for user experience. I have a lot of ideas for events in the Blumenau area. My desire is to make the local developers know about the remote working lifestyle that Toptal promotes and how it can change your life, literally. Looking forward to talk tomorrow :)
