Vinicius Tadeu Santana
Junior Researcher / CEITEC BUT
I moved to Brno in 2018 to do material research at CEITEC. Apart from my research, I like working with my students and seeing them grow. With my wife and two-year-old son, we love to spend as much time in nature as possible and travel around Brno and South Moravia.
Software Developer / SAP Labs Czech Republic
I come from Brazil, but I also have Italian citizenship. I used to live in Spain, where I met my girlfriend, who is Czech, and we moved to Brno in 2021. We both work in big international companies. In our free time, we love to go hiking with our dog or go out with friends.
Copywriter/Marketing / Jetveo
I have lived in Brno with my family for more than 16 years. In the United States, I was a sports journalist and worked as a publicist for professional horse racing. After moving to the Czech Republic, I switched to teaching English, writing, and editing. Now I work in marketing and copywriting at Jetveo, a software start-up that builds low-code web applications.
Financial Analyst / Atlas Copco
I have lived in Brno for over nine years with my partner and our son. After graduating from university, I started working as an English teacher at a language school. My friend then mentioned an open position for an English speaker with German at the shared service center at Atlas Copco. I never dreamed of working in finance, but it seems to be my thing.

That’s where this list comes in – to make sure you’re not caught off-guard when you arrive. So here’s what to expect, what to look forward to, and even what to be aware of as you pack for your trip.
