Concealed was created in João Saraiva’s living room table in 2017 with the goal of assembling a fully remote team that would live their best life while delivering their best work.

“Despite my professional skills being mainly as a developer I always had a strong passion for design and how these two areas should be combined together. Concealed was born out of that passion with the vision to work in the “shadows” and allowing the work that we do shine by itself. We love to work in different products from diverse areas: share your idea with us so that we can surprise you.”

Core Values

The principles that guide us

Communicate with clarity

We talk, write, design and code in a clear way, so that information is always accessible.


We trust each other to manage our time and energy in a way that lets us achieve our best quality of life.


Caring for one another allows us to live less stressful, happier lives.

Continuous Improvement

We study and experiment until we find the best process and solution for each new challenge, and then we share our findings with the team so that they improve along with us.


We use our moral compass in every decision, opting to be straightforward, just and fair, and honoring our commitments every time.

High quality work

When we communicate with clarity, trust each other, are empathic with our colleagues and work together with integrity to get better everyday, the outcome is amazing.

Remote Gatherings

Since we couldn’t get together for our quarterly dinners once the pandemic began, we came up with new remote solutions to hang out — one of them was playing some online games, like creating the best themed t-shirt design.

Team Retreat in Sines 2019

2019 Retreat: Sines
