👋 Hey, I'm Victor
I'm a product engineer, optimistic nihilist and lifelong learner.
I currently work at Tailwarden, where I ship core features with my team using React, Next.js and Typescript to help companies have more visibility into costs and usage from their cloud infrastructure.
Before that, I was an experienced product designer working closely with end users and product teams in all kinds of setups: startups, scaleups, enterprises, and consulting.
My main goal today is pairing my UX and product background with frontend to craft exceptional and technically robust products.
