This week, we're shining the spotlight on Phillipe Barbosa, Senior Software Developer and loving Dad.
❓ What's your favourite memory or experience you've had since joining Fiix?
✨ My first week at Fiix is definitely one of my favourite memories... The people were so friendly, so nice to me that I was almost shocked. After that week, I was sure that I made the right choice joining Fiix.
❓ What made you decide to work at Fiix?
✨ I received a message from Tham asking if I was opened to new opportunities. When I checked the Glassdoor score for Fiix and saw where the office was, I realized that it would be a great opportunity for me and my family. In the end, I really enjoyed the culture of the company. It was maybe one of the first times I had contact with a company that looked at me not just as a resource, but as a human being.
❓ Tell us something fun that you do in your spare time or something interesting no one knows about you.
✨ Now that I have a daughter and I don't have a family in Canada, most of my spare time is spent with her, doing all those things I've never thought I would do!! But back to when I was in Brazil, I used to play the guitar at the mass in a catholic church for 12 years, and that brings me so many wonderful memories. After all, that's where I met my wife, back in 2008. I barely knew how to play the guitar when I started, but it was an amazing place to learn and develop many skills 🎶.
❓ Do you think you'll teach your daughter to play the guitar?
✨ I would love to teach Alice how to play the guitar!!! I didn't have a teacher, so it would be amazing to somehow help her! But, by the end of the day, she has to want to learn first 🎸.
❓ What's your favourite thing to do on the weekends?
✨ Right now my favourite thing to do on the weekends is enjoy my daughter and wife! My daughter is 20-months-old and she's growing super fast. So, I just try to be there and see her growth as much as possible. Weekend is also the time I have to give a break to my wife, since she's taking care of Alice full time. 💙
