Bruno A. Macedo
With more than 16 years experience as a Corporate Senior Executive Technologist, I am currently looking forward to finish my PhD in Information Systems Management. I have a large experience on the areas of: Information Systems, Aerospace Defense & Security, Business Intelligence & Analytics, Fintech, Banking and Finance information systems.
I was happy to accept the invitation to take part of the Fincite project, as it provides me with the ability to be in touch with the major European Financial institutions and top managers gaining precious insight knowledge that otherwise would be hard to access. I have already worked in several countries globally in with large multicultural teams, focused on implementing multiple technology transformation based strategies for value creation in large organizations. To be helping now in a foreign country start-up since its early start has been an exciting challenge that fits my creative personality, my passion for innovation, state of the art technologies but mostly on my motivation and mentorship skills.
It’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen
I have a background in Economics with focus on entrepreneurship. After my studies, I have worked for a large healthcare enterprise specialized for new product development. I had a lot of fun launching successful products, but still wanted to develop something from scratch. The ability to extinguish new ideas is important to productivity and to our capacity to scale. It was time for a change – I wanted to extend my knowledge and enhance my personal scaling.
Back to the roots. I found myself in a situation where I wanted to have more flexibility and space for creating great things. Therefore, I joined Fincite. Fincite is in a phase of growth, but still has many opportunities to contribute new ideas and shape the company. At Fincite I am responsible for building new and shaping existing products. I take clients’ feedback and other sources to develop customer-focused solutions.
It did not take long since I saw the first Fintech articles to understand that I would love to work in the area, I find it fascinating, specially the way the financial and economic theories I had learned are now taking form in the new digital World. In our daily lives and specially in our devices, Fintech appears to be there, directly and indirectly in some kind of an ubiquitous way.
So at the time I was invited to join Fincite as a Project Manager and take part of this new disruptive waive of young entrepreneurs, I had no dough to accept this opportunity. As a young & passionate professional I would like to bring some “art” into the World of Finance by combining the taste of painting & culture with financial products. I like to call it the Art Noveaux of Financial Technology as I’m trying to make things look more than just simple products. One of my life goals is continuous learning by gaining as many as experiences as possible: As part of an international team I learn about culture and languages every day.
I decided to join Fincite as they are a young founder management team with spread expertise at the cutting front of information technology, finance & innovation growth. During the recruitment phase, I connected well with each of the business owners who took time to explain the environment I would be developing in & details of potential projects I would run, while taking a deep personal interest in my competencies, goals & drive.
As a project & ventures manager I spend much time interacting directly with clients to encourage the adoption of innovative solutions, set expectations & extract requirements, which then need to be transferred to our tech solutions teams for work package estimation, where I act as a controller throughout the development process. I take a leading role in operations management, developing internal process & setting project management standards.

Innovation, creativity and cutting-edge technology are concepts that I must keep in mind every day in order to fulfill my job as product manager. My main tasks are to create and manage Fincite’s own products according to the needs of the market and our clients. Tasks that I could not achieve without the help of our highly talented development team.
I was tired of old fashioned companies that were sticking to outdated technologies and not considering their employees’ ideas. However, on my first interview, I quickly realized that Fincite was offering completely the opposite. The “startup like” environment, disruptive products and the possibility to grow professionally were the triggers that made me decide to join the company. Travelling is one of my passions. Getting to know new cultures, trying different foods, hiking, biking, enjoying, natural landscapes… are things that I really like to do on my free time.
