Meet Gus

Gustavo Pezzi

Senior Developer

Hi there! I am originally from Brazil, lived in the US while in college, and after one year studying in Oxford I’ve now arrived in London to join Encore as a senior developer.

I have been a professional developer for more than 7 years, working on projects such as web systems, 3D applications, and even some small advert games. Being passionate about what I do, I thought it would be a good idea to try to inspire others, so for almost 5 years I was also a programming instructor in a small college in Brazil, mostly teaching first year students how to code.

If I am not reading about programming, mathematics, or some other nerdy subject, chances are I am spending my time and money on old pianos or old blues and jazz records.

Being also a blues pianist and a singer, it’s clear that music and technology are the most important elements of my daily routine and are incredibly dear to me. I am extremely happy to be joining the Encore team and looking forward to rolling up my sleeves and create amazing experiences for our users.

My playlist is usually filled with artists from the Blue Note era. Right now I am listening two of my heroes, Jimmy Smith on the Hammond B3 organ and Stanley Turrentine on sax. Check these cats out!
