Yrleyjânder is originally from Brazil, but now lives in Toronto, Canada, and is one of our Calypso consultants. He has a strong background in software development projects, and has participated in many projects for multinational companies, specifically in financial systems.
We had a chance to interview him and find out more about his time with the company as well as some of his most memorable moments and experiences over the past eleven years.
1. What are you most excited about the Exadel-CPQi Integration?
Since joining CPQi, I have been on several financial market projects in different countries in Latin America. In addition to participating in other areas of technology projects, Exadel also grows by drawing in clients from other continents. This results in more opportunities for gaining technological and cultural knowledge.
2. What word or phrase would you use to describe your journey with CPQi?
3. What is your most memorable project or moment?
I believe it was in Peru, where I worked for 11 months between 2011 and 2012. It was my first professional experience outside Brazil. During my first week I had to present a solution in Spanish. At the time, I wasn’t familiar with the language.Despite that, my proposed solution for that part of the project was very well received and ended up being implemented.
4. Is there anyone who has had an impact on you in your years working at CPQi?
I would have to say that there are many people. I have been working at CPQi (an Exadel Company) for several years now, and know people that started working at the company from the beginning. Out of all the people I have met, I would like to give a special thanks to Terry Boyland for his words of motivation at the meetings we’ve had over the years.
5. What’s your favorite thing about working in the FinTech industry?
I would say, investigating financial calculations and the root causes of existing issues. I am also fascinated by the interaction with other areas and integration with other systems. Sometimes I feel like a detective!
6. What advice do you have for anyone who wants to start a career in Fintech?
Be curious and look for similarities between financial products and systems. And also don’t be afraid of asking questions.
