Brief Summary About me Eric Veloso
One question that I had to answer over a hundred times in the past three years is, "Why did you move to Brazil from the U.S, are you crazy?"
People here in Brazil look at me as if I had three heads when I tell them I was born and raised in the U.S. but decided to move here at the end of 2014. But what they don't understand, is that everyone has their own motives. At the time I just wanted a different challenge, plus my family besides parents and brothers resides in the city Belo Horizonte, MG. So why not give a shot?
Landed in BH, and as we all know 2015 was a horrible year for Brazil's economy so I ended up teaching English at language learning school for a semester and then got my first "real" job at a start-up, SambaAds.
Today I live in São Paulo, SP and work at Predicta as an Account Executive for its product YContent. My responsibility within this position is to expand our ad network of Publishers and connect its online audience with rich video content that lies within our platform. Since attaining this position I was able to add 33 Publishers and a total of 360,616,342 page-views to our network. My goal is to continue to engage and provide Publishers with a video recommendation and monetisation strategy, and learn as much as possible about programmatic advertising.
I am a laid back dude that enjoys having a good time with co-workers, friends, family. Love sports, die hard Eagles fan! Enjoy watching TV series, exercising, reading, eating good food, and traveling.
At the office I believe is all about leading by example, teamwork, transparency and honesty are fundamental to an work environment. I love the underdog role, so expect to get a lot of motivation, persistency, humbleness, and an approachable demeanour out of me.
To all the people that think I am crazy, I tell them I was fortunate enough to have a dual citizenship, speak three languages. Why not take advantage of the opportunity, experience new things and grow as a person and a professional.
