From Cupcaker to Senior Android Engineer in 3 years — here’s one Caker’s career story…

It’s not easy building and nurturing a hybrid-remote team; you need to put equal time and effort into the personal and professional development of every employee. Because when you do, talent may just flourish from the most unexpected — and untrained! — places.

That’s exactly what happened when Diego Almeida de Oliveira first came to Cheesecake Labs in 2017. Over 3 and a half years, Diego grew from an intern — or “Cupcaker”, as we like to say — to one of CKL’s most highly-skilled and well-respected Senior Android Engineers, delivering delightful mobile apps to clients as Tapcart and Singularity University.

Screw the minimum ‘viable’ product, let’s talk about value!

Chances are, you’re familiar with the term ‘Minimum viable product’. Colloquially abbreviated to ‘MVP’, these three words have taken the product development and lean startup world by storm for years.

Mental health strategies for remote work during a pandemic

This pandemic has forced us to experience a period of many changes in our life dynamics. Social distance has impacted almost all areas of our lives, especially how we relate to work. The famous Home office, or telework, which was once considered a privilege or an innovative work model, has now become a reality for many companies, especially in the IT sector.
