My name is Jaime Dantas, and I am a Computer Engineer. This is my resume developed specially for you. Currently, I work as a Software Engineer in the biggest bank of South America where I design, implement, and maintain systems in a highly available, real-time distributed platform. Not only do I use public cloud providers, but also maintain private cloud platforms. I have been working in the finance industry for over two years now, and I took part in many projects regarding smart payments, banking systems and financial transactions. In addition to my carrier as a Software Engineer, I worked as an Electronics Engineer, Telecommunication Engineer, and Instrumentation and Control Engineer in a wide range of industries such as the aerospace, energy and telecommunication. Please, consider my application for the Job.
I developed a wide range of engineering skills throughout my academic and professional career.
As an engineer, I love to solve problems and to develop new technologies. Research, performance and efficiency are embedded in my DNA.

It was at UFRN where I really got involved with high quality research in several fields of engineering. Firstly, I began developing research in the Laboratory of Automation and Control Engineering for Petroleum where I helped to develop automation systems applied to the oil and gas industry, focused on onshore oil production. My main contributions there were related to systems modeling using PLCs and controllers as well as developing supervisory and control tools with MATLAB and C++.
I then moved on to the aerospace industry where I developed control systems for UAVs in an joint partnership between the Brazilian Air Force and the UFRN. This research resulted in the article Embedded Hardware Architecture for Recoverable and Ejectable Loads for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles published in the VI Forum of Innovation and Research of the CLBI in November of 2016. This work resulted not only in an final product but also a recommendation from a well-known professor in the field of embedded electronics and mechatronics.
Finally, during my final year at UFRN I developed research on computer networks and embedded systems by designing an embedded hardware architecture and a multiplatform software capable of monitoring and controlling a data center environment. As a result, I published the paper Embedded Real-Time Environment Control System for Data Centers in the XXIII CIENTEC 2017.
Award: Medal of Academic Merit as the student with the highest grades among all Computer Engineering students - GPA 9.0/10.0. See credential (in Portuguese).
May 2015 - Incomplete
I was sponsored by the Brazilian government to study and to develop research abroad for two years in Canada through the program Science without Borders.
During this period, I took several courses at Confederation College, and developed research on Biomass. I also did an internship at the Ontario Power Generation - Bioenergy Research Center, in Thunder Bay, Ontario. All these works resulted in several recommendations by both Canadian professors and engineers.
Award: Recognition of Achievement - GPA 3.9/4.0.
Since I was a kid I loved electronics and math! During my school years, I always questined my professors so I could learn even more about physics, chemistry, math, biology and history. My devotion to research can be seen in a project I made back in 2008 when I was 14 years old for a science fair in my school regarding wind energy, where I developed a fully working model of a wind farm. This project won as the best work presented at the time.
Award: Best Student Performance - Final Year, 2010.
Award: Best Student Performance - Second Year, 2009.
Award: Best Student Performance - First Year, 2008.
I scored 7.5 in the General Purposes English Exam which corresponds to a C1 level in the CEFR system.
I have both of my degrees validated by the Canadian government. My credential is available here.
I am a Professional Computer Engineer in the state of Sao Paulo in Brazil. My credential is available here (in Portuguese).
I strongly believe we all should give something back to the society. I am always involved with volunteering work, and I want to use my skills to help others.
