- Franco, Software Engineer from Brazil
Franco, a well-experienced software engineer from Brazil, shared his Turing.com review and said that one thing he likes most about Turing is that they delivered what they promised; a steady income and career growth.
Based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Franco is a Software Engineer with over ten years of experience. He has worked with multiple teams in startups and MNCs as a Solutions Architect, Full-stack Developer, and Team Leader.
Originally a Peruvian, Franco came to Brazil back in 2011 for his studies. He fell in love with the place and has been living there ever since. "I can never imagine moving out of this city because I love it here," he exclaims. But all that was about to change with the onset of the pandemic.
Brazil was one of the worst-hit countries by the COVID-19 virus, and Franco had to spend his days in ambiguity, unsure of what his future might look like. "I was working from home for a company but wasn't sure when they would call me back to the office. I was hesitant to travel in such uncertain times," he shares.
Franco always wanted a remote job with a US-based company and started an aggressive job hunt. That is when he learned about Turing from a close friend. "I went to their website and saw what they were offering. It was just what I wanted. Long term, full-time remote jobs and that too with American companies," he says.
"I signed up and completed their stringent tests designed to find skilled developers. I got hired in just two weeks. Now, I am working from the coziest, comfy, and relaxing place in the world—my home—without worrying about VISA," Franco adds.
Franco began discovering his hidden talents after joining Turing. "My work schedule is from 9 am to 6 pm. I use the time I save in traveling to work to practice some piano pieces that I want to record in the future and spend some time with my wife and Alice," he says.
"What I like about Turing is that they delivered what they promised; a steady income and career growth!" he exclaims.
Professionally, Turing offers an international experience that is unmatched by local firms bound by geography. "Turing allowed me to work in the US market with teams of talented people from all around the world. They assign these incredible managers from the start of the process to help us with everything. They even have workspace software that makes remote work extremely smooth and easy," he says.
"I am in a much better place now. I can proudly say that I made this life-changing decision. I can't imagine traveling every day to an office again. As they say, the future of work is remote," he concludes.
