From Brazil to Ireland to Canada, Cacio Neto has had an exciting journey with OpenText. In this Careers & Culture blog, Cacio describes his experience to date:

I joined OpenText in my home country of Brazil four years ago.

I was the first SAP Professional Services Consultant in South America for Vendor Invoice Management (VIM). I was enthusiastic to have the opportunity to build OpenText’s presence in the South American SAP market through my work.

During this time, one of my most memorable moments was at a client construction site for a hydroelectric dam in the middle of the jungle – now that was a life experience! That work led to a more senior position and receiving an OpenText Excellence Award.

While I really enjoyed my two years in this role, I had a life goal to fulfill. Before I joined OpenText in Brazil, I studied in Ireland while working remotely. From my years of study there, I had a strong desire to return to Ireland to live and gain global career experience.

In 2015, while I was on holidays in Ireland, we moved to a bigger office in Cork. I was invited to attend the new office inauguration party. At this event, I was offered a position in Cork as a level three Technical Support Analyst. This was the chance to help me realize my dreams!

So, off I went to Cork to begin a new adventure…

As part of the Cork team, my typical day has changed from my role in Brazil. I’m still supporting customer implementations of OpenText solutions for SAP, but I now support products beyond Vendor Invoice Management.

In Cork, our customers and the other staff around me are a bit more diverse – they come from all over the world. Our office in Cork is really unique in this way: it is a place where we not only value diversity, but where we also see it as something that makes us stronger. Our team here comes from twelve different countries!

During breaks, I have a great time with my colleagues, enjoying good conversation, playing pool or PlayStation 4 in our games room and drinking coffee (my favourite). We also have social events to look forward to after work – some that are organized by the company and others that we plan informally.

Another great moment in my life happened last year, when I was selected as a Gold Ticket Delegate.

As a delegate, I travelled to the OpenText headquarters in Waterloo, Canada to celebrate the company’s 25th anniversary on stage with our CEO and CTO Mark Barrenechea. This was a really special week where I was treated like a superstar: limousines, dinner with top Canadian chefs, and a VIP basketball match at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto.

OpenText really has given me the chance to experience some remarkable things. All in all, it’s been a great ride to date – and I can’t wait to see where I grow next with this incredible organization!”
