My happy place

Matias Paterlini's happy place

I can fully concentrate, watch the flowers to think, hear the birds on my window, have a great air conditioner, great devices, what else can I ask for?


Proud moment

When I joined Candor, it makes me proud to work in a product like this.

It motivated me to continue to learn more every day, and to be as much professional as I can be. Also it felt fantastic to have folks who I can learn from every day!

Am I lucky?

I prefer to consider myself blessed by God

A fun fact about me is…

My mom convinced me to take a classical dance class when I was 15

She told me I'd become a millionaire because dance partners were scarce those days 😂
