About us.

Who we are.

An exquisite omelette.

We are not pixel pushers or code monkeys. We let our creativity lead the way, but we know where we're headed, and there's a purpose to everything we do. We're just a bunch of talented, creative people aspiring to do incredible things together and have some fun along the way.

Significa was founded by Pedro “El Patrón” Brandão.

Mariana was our first hire in 2016, and has been with us ever since.

Core values.

Expressed in everything.

Empathy and compassion.

We recognise we are all human and that, as such, we are all different. We embrace difference.


Go further together with curiosity and empathy, always.


We are witty by nature. We have fun at work while being extremely professional in what we do.


We foster an environment where reliability and ethical principles are not just appreciated.


We aspire higher. We push ourselves to be better. We push others to be better.


A walk in the park.

Our office is not just a physical space. It is so much more than that – it is what builds our connectedness. A space where we can bounce ideas off each other, support colleagues, catch up on the weekend's activities or play marralhinha at lunch. This sense of togetherness is born and nurtured out of our shared space, the office.
