Experience, Rigour, and a User-Centric Approach.
Our DNA is made of ex-startup founders and the top talent in Product, UX/UI, Software development and Machine & Deep Learning. We came together from various backgrounds with one vision: to bring a lean, user-centric approach to product innovation and software development by completely understanding the business needs before building anything.
Our founding team started their journeys in the corporate world. They then moved on to build their own startups before coming together to form Altar.io. This experience has made André, Daniel, Paolo and João lean by nature. They studied lean product development through building startups from the ground up with very few resources. This is why when you build a product with us it will always be streamlined to the most important features for your user.
Andre has a long experience in the Startup scene, having created Table & Friends, a social restaurant reservation system back in 2011. Since the start of Altar.io he's been involved in helping clients in a broad range of sectors such as Marketplaces, Travel and Education.
Daniel created his first startup while he was still attending university and since then he founded 6 in a row. He is our renaissance man, he has the holistic approach covering strategic decisions from business to data-science, marketing and product.
Paolo started working in banking in Milan and London. After the financial career, he created a startup and then joined Altar where he mainly deals with business development and fintech projects.
João is Altar’s co-founder and former CTO. He is an evangelist of Node.JS and Angular 4 and a prominent actor in the open-source scene - leading many trendy libraries and part of the IBM StrongLoop Team and Google Angular Class.
André is a partner at Altar.io and leads the Frontend Development. He previously worked at Barclays and BNP Paribas as a Senior Frontend Engineer and has a background in visual arts.
Claudio is a partner and CTO at Altar.io. He previously served as full stack Tech Lead and CTO at multiple startups and companies in London and Amsterdam. He currently focuses his research on Machine Learning at the Edge.
We have a rigorous screening process to identify the best talent, from inception, UXUI design, and development. We are always on the lookout for great problem solvers with passion and drive, these are the types of people we want to work with and learn from ourselves.
Of the hundreds of applicants we see each month usually fewer than 1% join our ranks. This means our small, focused teams are able to deliver extraordinary results. As we are all based at our Lisbon HQ, communication between us is clear and concise - without barriers or interference.
