We were born the best possible way: amidst two rock bands, back in 2009, in Florianópolis. We can’t deny our passion for music, and, obviously, for some other qualities we also have incorporated as our values, along the way: determination, being myself, evolution, empathy, integrity, and being involved (to become an involvee).
All of these mixes and combinations of great things and incredible people around us positioned us among top rankings on GPTW, including the very first place in small companies in SC, in 2016 and 2017, and, later, two other awards featuring us on the first place but among medium companies in SC, in 2018.
Yeah, we sure are some proud ‘manezinhos’! But we also perform in other places, as well. Physically, we have our branches in São Paulo (such a nice place!) and in Mexico City, where our involvees hablan español muy bien, gracias, and encourage our globalization.
