Wilson Pu

"This rare international experience I had at Poatek has already began to open doors in my current role. When I started my job as a Program Manager for Microsoft on October 2021, I was given the opportunity to own the inventory management of Azure cloud hardware in our Brazil regions. Overall, I think Poatek will continue stand out as a highlight in my previous experiences in both my eyes and others’ eyes."

Felipe Couto

I loved living in Porto Alegre. I did not expect the city to be that big and breathe innovation on each block, with so many startups and amazing people. Poatek taught me a lot for my career. I learned how to collaborate with teams and how to work in a fast-paced environment, skills that would prove essential moving further.
