Meet the team: Jogean Carvalho

Jogean Carvalho joins Balkerne after completing his PhD in Physics at São Paulo State University. He tells us more about his background and experiences.

Why did you choose a career in science and technology?

From a young age, I was fascinated by how things worked and constantly asked "why?". This curiosity led me to pursue a degree in Science. 

As I delved deeper into the field, I discovered the power of technology and the many ways it can be used to model, address and answer complex questions. That's when I fell in love with technology. Along this path, I have learned most things by myself, which I did well thanks to persistence, one of my strengths. 

Overall, I am a highly motivated and curious individual with a deep passion for science and technology, and I am constantly seeking new challenges and opportunities to learn and grow. However, I am also well-rounded and enjoy hobbies such as playing guitar, hikings, reading books and spending time outdoors.

What motivated you to join Balkerne?

I joined Balkerne because it's a company that values learning, growth, collaboration and making a positive impact. Balkerne provides the resources and support needed to achieve these goals. 

Additionally, the team is friendly, supportive and enjoyable to work with.

What do you enjoy most about your role?

As a software developer, every day presents new opportunities to learn and grow. Working at Balkerne has allowed me to sharpen my programming skills and to continuously push myself beyond my limits.
