One of the things that make our company special is our team members. This week we want to give a warm shoutout to Eira Machado, Head of Projects and Operations. Eira has been with SmartHop since August of 2018 when the company was in its early stages. What drew her to work for SmartHop was the team’s contagious enthusiasm, since she was looking forward to growing professionally in a fast-paced and technologically-driven environment with dedicated people.

Before SmartHop, Eira had been with several tech companies doing project management and engineering. Her background spans banks, insurance companies, transnational corporations, software factories, and startups. Her passion stems from her ability to help others achieve their goals.

Eira’s favorite thing about her job is its dynamism: “It is fascinating, inspiring, and challenging. Every day we have a new challenge and a new way to improve. For me, it’s very gratifying to know that I was part of this amazing project from the beginning.”

Eira is an integral part of SmartHop's team, her technological expertise and management skills ensure that each team completes their projects successfully and on time. Eira plans to keep growing with SmartHop: “I believe that when SmartHop grows, I grow with it.” Thanks Eira, for all that you do!
