Flavio Heleno I help teams build creative and robust solutions to complex problems.

Specializing in cloud infrastructure, technical strategy, and team leadership, I have a strong background in delivering scalable solutions and driving innovation. With expertise in diverse domains such as event-driven architectures, software security and process automation, I am well-equipped to take on the role of CTO or Engineering Manager.

Throughout my career, I have successfully executed technical due diligence processes, presented to investors, and played a pivotal role in commercial meetings. Additionally, I have contributed to the development of information security policies, business continuity plans, and data loss prevention policies.
