Marcelo Marsson Goncalves da Costa

I am an Associate Director in Capgemini and am currently working as a Design Lead for Salesforce application.

What is the Capgemini value that resonates with you, and why?

I think that from all the values, the one that resonates the most with me would be “Honesty”. I think an open discussion with a customer or colleague, even on hard topics, are still the best way to empower all the parties to have a clear way through any scenario.

What are you passionate about in your role?

In my role, I am passionate about being able to conceptualise and implement solutions for business problems. Design and implement “from scratch” software or a system, gives me immense satisfaction, almost like a painter drawing a painting, or a musician writing a song.

It’s the implementation of the abstract from nothingness…

How have your studies helped you in your current role at Capgemini?

I am more of a technical person and have always worked with edge technology (Started as an IOS developer back in 2009, and soon after found cloud computing). Studying, preparing and being certified is constant. In the technology industry, the moment you stop studying and improving, you are pretty much out.

What are 3 words you’d use to describe Capgemini as an employer?

Collaboration, Empowerment, Improvement.

What are some of your volunteer or charitable work experiences?

I currently volunteer as a Scuba Dive instructor in Melbourne University underwater club, and that brings me LOTS of joy. Being able to introduce people to one of my passions and passing over the same feeling is quite rewarding.
