Reading Time: 3 minutes
Hello, anyone there?
I’m João. I joined Angry Ventures (AV) in January as a business developer. Conceivably you are asking yourself – “wtf is business development? Are you a salesman? The kind of people that pisses off others with GIFs and e-mails?” – I have my own perspective about these questions and I could explain them by writing about what I’ve learned in AV for the past four months concerning sales, but I’ll leave it for another blog post (if you are puzzled, you can always send me an e-mail).
However, I’ll give you now a taste of what I do for business development.
As a business developer, I have the job of introducing you to our team. That will take between fifteen to twenty minutes of reading time, and as I know you are busy, I will share some fun facts and peculiarities about our team so that you get to know us a little bit more.
To simplify, I’ll compile the information into three communities: developers, marketeers, and biz developers.
I’m going to write about one/two sentences per person to not overextend this. You can also read here more about the Angry Venture’ boys and gals.
Let’s start with the developers.
Rui, 28 years old, but he looks 20. He is a full-stack developer (you don’t know what it means, here is the definition on our Bullshit Free Dictionary) and solves any tech challenge or problem faster than you read this sentence. I suspect that, in his spare time, he puts on his Guy Fawkes’ mask, and he goes around pirating all around the internet. Oh, he also does web design.
Ramigs is the chill guy from the office. He can’t lose a football match and he is recognized in the developers’ community for creating the most organized and clean code in all coding history.
I have never seen João Garcia because he works remotely but I know that he is similar to Alfred from Batman, who runs all day-to-day tasks and saves the world from the Batcave.
Jorge, “the tourist psychologist that learned code by himself”: he is a prestigious full-stack developer who also working remotely and living his vida loca in Toronto.
Michel is the project manager who makes life easier for all these developers, with his sarcastic humor accompanied by an explainable talent for yoga 😉
Now the peculiar people, the marketeers:
Carolina is my English and Portuguese teacher who doesn’t let a grammar mistake go unpunished. She can create endless and useful content to promote engagement with your audience all day long as well. Furthermore, she loves breaking keyboards and will scream with tenderness whenever she sees a cat.
Joana is the ultimate multitasking machine – she consumes marketing books all weekend; she will do your logo design on Monday and will develop your website on Tuesday. On Wednesdays and Thursdays, she will water the flowers around the office, and, on Fridays, she will help you with your marketing strategy.
Telma will deploy your marketing strategy and if there is no market, she will generate one. She’s the queen of conversions and social media strategy.
Tiago is constantly hungry and he is a true Portuguese guru of gamification. If you want to discover what is a value proposition and a real added value, talk to this guy.
Bernardo is a designer and he will often stare at things and engross in long conversations about the meaning of them. After that, he will design all your brand image identity and muse about how beautiful things happen when you merge Adobe with a brand culture.
Finally, the biz developers…
Fernando is the founder of Angry Ventures. He is similar to a few super-heroes by the haircut, like Professor X, Nick Fury, or Seth Godin. Pay attention to his priceless feedback and listen to what he tells you until the last drop.
Finally, me. Nowadays, I talk with interesting people, and sometimes, magically, I find out I can help them, or they can assist me.
This is part of my job as a business developer. I connect people and get to know their strengths and characters and how they can help you with your endeavors.
So, can I help you?
