    I worked for 11 years in IT consulting firms, 6+ years managing teams and multinational projects. I started working as a developer while in college and love the infinite opportunities the internet brings. I participated in different online projects for many industries and from various positions which gave me a broad understanding of how the web works. I recently fell in love with Ruby on Rails. BS/MS in Multimedia Engineering + MBA from IESE

    Alice Neves Thomé
    Co-founder, Marketing and Sales

    After 6 years in travel & tourism, mainly with group travel management, I decided to pursue an MBA that could open up new horizons. I'm Brazilian and have lived 4,5 yrs in Prague, CZ prior to studying at IE Business School, Madrid, Spain. As a former AIESECer I've decided to take an entrepreneurial path since the start of my career. My skills: relationship building, cross-cultural communication, customer servicing and business conceptualization.
