Sossusvlei, Namibia

Hello there! I'm Zé Maria, a mobile app consultant who can shape your idea into a successful app. I'm a Startup Chile and Wayra Alumni with extensive experience building consumer facing products.


MY Mission

To provide my clients with a top-notch service: from product conception to real world deployment. To help them get above the pack by producing applications that are innovative at their core, with a modern and slick UI backed by an infrastructure built on the most solid and reliable technologies available.

Zé is a complete professional. Throughout the development of Caribu, Zé was meticulous, constructive and always had a positive attitude. Our questions and concerns were dealt with swiftly, the milestones set were delivered efficiently, and any vital changes to the project were met with a can-do attitude. Following the project, Zé dealt with any bugs that were found and ensured the app was ready for launch. Finally, not only has be been a fantastic developer… but he’s a really nice bloke as well
— Ben Mallett CEO of Caribu
We’d worked with 4 other developers before finding Zé. All of which could not pull off our project. He came in with jumbled code from our past developers and was able to sort it out and get us a completed, functional product!
Despite it being outsourced, communication was easy and prompt. He also was always able to come to a solution for our ever evolving features and design.
We’re hoping to work with Zé again very soon! Highly recommend!
— Carter Hogan Marketing and New Business Development
