Sophia hails from Brazil and moved to New Zealand 1 year ago to join Talent Army. 

Having moved to New Zealand and having to change her cuisine, Sophia has found a new passion for cooking and is now loving Asian food the most. 

Having worked in tech startups and tech corporations her whole career she has very deep technical knowledge that allows her to go to another level of conversations with potential candidates. 

Sophia has worked in startups herself and has seen scale and process improvements, so she really knows what to look for when a client asks for a particular candidate. 

This is probably because she started her career in psychology and so she really cares deeply about matching the right candidate with the right opportunities that will help their careers and knows how to draw this information from even the most introverted candidates. 

Candidates trust Sophia and this is obvious by the amount of feedback we receive about her. 

Sophia also helps Talent Army with our own process improvement and loves to come up with ideas on how we can streamline our own process and help us to find more time to spend searching for unicorns. 

When she is not at work you will usually find Sophia dancing the Samba de Gafieira, Zouk and Forró which are all Brazilian dances.

Occasionally she will convince the office to dance with her and did so with the whole office on Carnival day this year 💃🏻
