I'm thrilled to announce that I'm joining Nubank as a Product Manager for their user acquisition and growth team in São Paulo.

In 2013 I left sunny Brazil for even sunnier Dubai to help crafting the front-end of dubizzle’s new place an ad process — a behemoth with more than fifty pages, seven different routes, and dozens of entry and exit points accessed by millions of users.

Given the flow size, user…
