1 GEEKHUNTER COO Celso Ferrari

Celso and Tomas first involvement with ​​entrepreneurship happened in 2013 when both were awarded a scholarship for Science Without Borders to study at UCLA (Univeristy of California, Los Angeles). What initially seemed just another ordinary engineering term quickly changed after taking on subjects of Marketing and Entrepreneurship. Right after they decided to found truBrain.com while still in US.

A year and a half later they returned to Brazil and eventhough they initially worked separate ways, they knew they would found another venture together. It was just a matter of time to spot an opportunity in the recruiting space after going throug some pain in finding good IT professionals. GeekHunter was then born. On weekends, Tomas and Celso recover practicing Kitesurfing and enjoying the natural beauties in Florianópolis.
