How did you land this position? They found me in the middle of São Paulo state, Brazil, to talk about the technology demand in Ottawa and invited me to participate in the recruitment process for developer positions.

How do you like Ottawa? My wife and I really like it as it’s extremely family-friendly. We like smaller cities, so Ottawa fits very well. We didn’t know anything about Ottawa before Invest Ottawa’s talent team reached out to us. Once offered the job, we watched every video about Ottawa on YouTube to learn about it.

How was the process of relocating to Ottawa? The process was fast and serious, almost every week Invest Ottawa’s recruiting team emailed to inform me about the decisions of the companies and to prepare me for the following steps. When I was going through the application process for my work permit, I could still count on Invest Ottawa for support.
