"I'm an industrial engineer who found his way to data about 6 years ago. I guess that's where my heart was all along. I started as a data analyst, then moved into full-stack web development and finally landed in data engineering. And it's not over yet (is it ever?).
I don't know what the future holds, but I do know that it will be behind a computer, trying to build beautiful things. I'm currently trying to bridge the gap between business and AI technologies at Mbarq in Belgium."
"I could tell from our first meetings that Pluralit was well-organised. They were really committed to finding a good fit and answering all the questions I had. I have met several Pluralitians along the way. Everyone has their own role, ready to meet different needs. It really does feel like a unique community.
We moved with our 3-year-old and everything went very smoothly. The Pluralit team were there for us every step of the way. From the initial paperwork at home, to the tickets, to actually waiting for us at the hotel in Mechelen. We were really grateful for that. Beyond my expectations!".
"I'm a software engineer with over 12 years' experience in the world of programming. My passion? Building microservice architectures in cloud-native environments using Java and AWS.
My career journey has been a thrilling ride, filled with fascinating projects like improving healthcare systems for the US government, exploring fintech solutions using PayPal cloud services, and working on global initiatives to fight poverty.
I'm also deeply passionate about artificial intelligence. You can find me contributing to open source projects aimed at rooting out corruption in the public sector".
"Now let's talk about my journey with Pluralit. Joining this remote team felt like finding a thriving community of like-minded tech enthusiasts. The camaraderie and collaboration is truly remarkable, even through virtual connections.
I'm currently working as a Golang software developer for Pluralit's Associated Press team, and it's been an exciting mix of challenges and learning opportunities. Contributing to a globally used platform is a rewarding experience and I'm thrilled to be part of this dynamic team."

Marketing Automation Analyst
"My academic background is in advertising and marketing, and never in my wildest dreams did I see myself in the IT world. However, three years ago I stumbled upon the opportunity to work with Salesforce and it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my professional life. Today, I proudly wear the hat of a marketing automation consultant, and I couldn't be happier. I can't imagine working with anything but Salesforce Marketing Cloud".
"As a Marketing Automation Analyst, I've had the incredible opportunity to work for FORWARD, a client based in Belgium. The relocation process couldn't have been smoother.
My husband and I received incredible support from Pluralit every step of the way, from sorting out visa documentation to booking our plane tickets and arranging accommodation. We are deeply grateful for the unwavering support we have received throughout this journey.
I've been in Belgium for almost six months now and I'm loving every moment of it. Living abroad has always been one of my dreams, and Belgium in particular has proved to be an excellent choice. We have been warmly welcomed by the Pluralit team and our client's team. Antwerp is an amazing city and a fantastic place to call home. I can't wait to explore more of Belgium and the rest of Europe!".
I have over 7 years of experience as a software engineer. I have contributed to projects involving healthcare data integration/interoperability, open data pipelines/visualisation, data ingestion for social initiatives for multidimensional poverty assessment, and backend stack migration to new technologies.
Most of my experience is based on backend contributions involving multiple technology stacks and programming languages, as well as knowledge of different cloud computing providers.
I graduated with an International Master's degree, which gave me great experience of working and meeting colleagues from all over the world and also planted the seed for my interest in research and development of knowledge graphs and natural language processing.
"I have been working as a remote software engineer for Pluralit for almost a year now and I have nothing but words of gratitude and joy for the whole team. They made me feel welcome and part of the family from the very first contact.
I am currently working for the Associated Press - Newsroom Team, which has been a fulfilling, challenging and fun experience so far. Being able to contribute to a worldwide platform used by thousands of people, while feeling integrated as part of the team and enjoying the experience, is about all I could ask for."

PAM Consultant - CyberArk (Associate)
"I have 7 years of experience working in the Cyber Security field. I'm experienced in working with different disciplines within the area such as IAM, AV, AntiSpam, Cryptography, KPIs, Assessments, etc.
I have been working as a consultant for different clients and industry segments for the last 4 years".
"I was working as a cybersecurity consultant in Brazil when I received a message on my LinkedIn from Ana asking if I was interested in a job opportunity in Belgium to work with CyberArk.
When I read the message, I was not very confident, but after meeting Ana and then Pablo, I saw that it was possible. Throughout the process, each person from Pluralit taught me something or how to improve my soft skills; everything was handled in the most human way possible because the challenges were enormous and for me, I had a language barrier, the issues of the new country or anything related to this unique experience.
Change is never easy, but to be honest, Pluralit helped my wife and me with every single question or process of the relocation. In the end, it went much smoother than I thought.
Today, Pluralit still supports my wife and me in everything and I can only thank everyone at Pluralit for changing my life and my family.
For me, the best thing about Pluralit is that you're treated like a unique person with flaws and qualities; we're not just numbers. Everyone here knows your dreams and goals, which the company tries to align with.

Senior Data Engineer
"In my 15 years of experience in IT, I have worked as a developer, scrum master and project manager at a software house called DB1 Global, as a systems analyst at Telefonica/Vivo, as a team leader at a wholesaler of solar panels and electronic components called Aldo, and finally at Keyrus, where I started my career as a data engineer as a consultant.
It was at Telefonica/Vivo in 2012 that I had my first Big Data experience with Hadoop. That was when I discovered my passion for data!"
“Pluralit found me via LinkedIn. Two months of negotiations later, we said “yes” and started the process of relocation to Belgium with the whole family.
I was the first Brazilian that Pluralit was relocating but the process went impressively fast, even with all the pandemic restrictions. The process took around 5 to 6 months and on Sept 1st, 2021, we were starting to live in Europe.
Life in Belgium is wonderful! The quality of life, culture, security and education we are being able to provide to our children is something unthinkable.
The language is not a problem if you speak English. Almost all Belgians speak English very well.
We really enjoy going with the kids to the thousands of parks and playgrounds we have in the country. We also love to travel and visit other countries, landscapes and cultures.”
“In my 14 years of experience, I've worked in different areas like IT, consulting and agriculture. At the end of 2015 I started working with public cloud, specifically Azure, first as a cloud engineer and after that as a DevOps engineer and architect. Today, I´m the lead architect of the biggest bank in Belgium on their journey to the Azure cloud.”
LIVING IN BELGIUM
“My wife and I moved here back in September 2020 when I received Pluralit's job offer. I love a lot of things from our life in Belgium. We live in front of a canal here in Mechelen and I'm surrounded by nature and parks.
It's very peaceful. My wife can safely return home from her master classes that she attends in Ghent late at night without worrying about her safety.
I commute to work by bike and it's great to be in the centre of Europe as not only we can visit a lot of cities quite easily.
Personally, I´ve learned many things as being separated from friends and family makes you grow a lot. You can't even use your own language and you understand that people aren't that different in this part of the globe. Things are never easy and one needs to make its own path.”

Senior Azure Cloud Architect
"I’m a mechatronics engineer that turned out to become a developer, like many here in Brazil. I have worked for some large multinationals such as Accenture (as a full-stack web developer) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (aka PwC, as a senior automation developer)".
"Pluralit sent me a message via LinkedIn about a job as an automation specialist. I found the offer very interesting: to lead the client's automation efforts; with a good financial offer; and most importantly, with the possibility to relocate to Europe, which is ideal as my daughter lives in Germany.
The first thing I did was contact and speak to a Brazilian colleague who works for Pluralit. He and his wife had recently moved to Belgium and he had nothing but positive things to say about the company, his current job and the relocation experience.
We decided to move slowly as the position allows me to work remotely for as long as I need.
I am happier than ever, working with things I love and surrounded by great people. It was definitely a great choice!"
Automation Specialist Engineer
ERCILIA M. ORDONEZ CASTELLANOS
"I started my career at the age of 18, working in my father's law firm. After graduating, I joined a well-known law firm where I stayed for two years before deciding to take a break and explore Europe. I lived in Dublin for almost four years and worked as a bar/restaurant/nightclub manager.
Upon my return to Argentina, I moved into the real estate sector. I was an administrator and lawyer for about seven years, four of which I spent at a leading real estate agency in Córdoba. In 2021, I embarked on a new journey and joined Pluralit, where I have been working ever since".
"My journey with Pluralit started as part of the Connecting Women programme, a six-month internship aimed at empowering women in technology. I was then thrilled to be offered a full-time position as a legal analyst with account management responsibilities. Over time, my role has expanded and I now manage Pluralit's legal department and also oversee migration processes to facilitate the relocation of people to Europe.
Pluralit has given me the extraordinary opportunity to fulfil a long-held dream of working as a lawyer while living and travelling throughout Europe.
I'm now living in Barcelona, having obtained my Italian citizenship, and I'm looking forward to all the new challenges that await me!"

Senior Application Support Engineer
“I am a Bachelor in IT and Systems analyst, with 18 years of experience. I have worked for multinational companies such as Verizon Business, Avaya, Turner Broadcasting and J.P. Morgan & Chase.”
“People would ask me then why was I leaving the biggest financial bank in the world to go to work for a relatively small company? The answer is simple. I don’t feel like a number here and being part of the Pluralit family is both an honour and a privilege. The decision of saying “yes” was the best of my life, workwise. Everyone does their job with a positive attitude and like me, they are glad to do so. So far it has been a wonderful 18 month experience and I raise my glass to toast for many, many more adventures as part of Pluralit.”
"I have a degree in Human Resources and more than 10 years of experience in the field in different roles in Argentinean companies".
"I met Ana through a mutual friend and we started talking about Pluralit and its potential. As she told me more and more about the project, I was tempted to challenge myself professionally and personally, to get out of my comfort zone.
I decided it was time to join a company that was 100% different from what I was used to. So my challenge is to bring all my experience to the table, push it to the limit and think outside the box.
My typical day is, ironically, very varied. As I have to take care of any circumstance that any team member might need, I have to manage the operations team's processes of all kinds in an orderly manner."
