Inside MD3 Team – Pedro Lucas

Ahhhh our family keeps growing… Pedro recently joined MD3 team and as usual, he also shared with us some information about him. Now, you get to know it too!

About me

Hi, my name is Pedro. I’m 24 years old and have recently joined MD3 as a Fullstack Software Engineer.

I completed my master’s degree in Informatics Engineering by the University of Coimbra in 2019 and stayed there for an extended period with a grant. Having little experience, I was looking for a company that would allow me to develop my skills and meet new people.

Joining MD3

My experience with MD3 has been very positive. From the start, everyone has been incredibly welcoming and cheerful. The onboarding process was fantastic; the people were very open, and I met everyone in the office. Even working from home, I felt that the company has a truly humane approach and takes excellent care of its collaborators.

My interests in general

Technology has always been my passion. Since I was little, I have been fascinated with computers, exploring what I could do with them. As I got older, I began disassembling old home computers and reassembling them, imitating some videos I saw on the internet. That curiosity led to me becoming a PC enthusiast, loving to build desktop computers.

My interest in technology also led to me playing a lot of videogames when I was younger. Most of those games had a historical setting, which could go from Ancient Greece, Rome, the Middle Ages, or even the Modern Period. I became fascinated by history ever since, reading books, watching documentaries, and listening to podcasts about it.

What is my favourite human endeavour?

For me, I think science and technology are the most important. If we look back a few centuries ago, I think we have to be very thankful for the sciences for helping humanity be where it is today.

Music that inspires me

Classic Rock is what I fall back to when I need to be in a good mood. Music like “Sultans of Swing” and “Lady Writer” by Dire Straits or “Layla” by Eric Clapton never fail to bring a smile to my face.
