I’m Paulo Cunha. I live in Copenhagen and do things.
I'm a software developer, living in Copenhagen, Denmark.
I'm originally from Portugal, but have been in Scandinavia for 9 years now. That's 29% of my life! I studied architecture, and worked in the field for over 3 years. But ultimately, my coding hobby took over and I decided to change careers. Since then, I worked in an education startup called Peergrade, and, at Trustpilot, a reviews website. As an architect, I spent most of the time at MER.
Most of my experience as a developer has been around building a design system, defining the frontend architecture and infrastructure of a large app, improving DX, and supporting teams when migrating their codebases to React. As an architect, I spent most of the time designing workspaces.
I get a kick out of improving people's workflows and productivity, building tools and systems to automate repetitive work, and ultimately, giving them more time to be creative and do interesting work.
