Gabriel Bocchini

I'm a Brazil based Digital Product Manager! A professional with more than 10 years of experience in Tourism, Travel Agencies and OTAs (online travel agencies). Always in love with tech since children, nowadays I´m the bridge connecting developers to the company needs (Product Owner) and also the market/consumer data supplier for the marketing/publicity department. After some years away from coding, I´m getting back on track with Python, Django, HTML5, CSS and JS! Let´s create!


I´m a professional with 10+ years experience in Corporate and Luxury Travel. In the last 4 years I´ve being fully responsible for the management of the OTA FRONTUR Turismo (and it´s digital products) located in Iguassu Falls - Brazil and with regional market share including the Parana State, Northwest Argentina and west Paraguay. I'm the bridge connecting developers/programmers to the company needs (Product Owner) and also the market/consumer data supplier for the marketing/publicity department.

My formal education include a bachelor´s degree on Tourism by UNIOESTE (Universidade Estadual do Oeste do Parana - State University) an my main professional experiences directly related to travel agencies (management and key accounts) and e-commerce.

Since kid, I was always envolved with technology (from hardware to small scripts!). Now I´m trying to migrate to a career purely in programming or purely IT related business. For this, I have being arduously studying, learning and building with Python and R, as well as the Django framework (web), REST and machine learning/statistic modeling with focus in data analysis and BI. I´m also very aware about Agile and XP methodologies. This will be a big leap for me personally and professionaly! Besides changing career, I also look for working with people/companies that share more of my personal values.

My main professional and personal caracteristcs are: extreme flexibility and adaptation to new work environements and working methods. Absolutely available for business trips or relocation. Strong networking, communication skills, courses, seminaries and congresses are present all over my professional path.
