About

I have long software development journey. Not only did I care for clean design and following standards in development, but I learned to always be value driven and be open to experiment unusual solutions. I seek working on projects at scale on both business impact and architecture. I experienced working with remote developers, and we maintained good productivity levels as long as there was a clear communication framework among all parties, besides the proper communication tools and infrastructure.

Experience
S
Technical Lead
Satra
Mar'20- present

Egypt. Responsibilities ● Set and track development plan. ● Orchestrate team activities. ● Design application features. ● Constantly contribute to coding activities. ● Review code. ● Mentor junior developers. Highlights: ● Worked on integrating two systems that used to work independently, one is Python/Django and the other is Java/Spring. ● Got my hands dirty with the Android app for the first time to add some main features and fix bugs. ● As part of my leadership role, I effectively communicated, and provided solution approaches and triggering questions for developers out of my area of expertise, like front-end. ● The Django system has been developed as a prototype, therefore it wasn't taken care of design principles and best practices, and it was pushed to production at that state. I faced a challenge to balance between serving continuous business needs and dealing with the fragile status of the code. ● Development process was a mess, so I worked on building it up in incremental steps to be able to gradually adapt the team to new rules while taking feedback to take first things first.
