Canadian-Iraqi developer & startup enthusiast based in Montreal, Canada

I’ve been developing software for nearly 15 years. Previously Amazon, Lightspeed, SSENSE, co-founder of nukern, LXRandCo, and now-defunct Infantry Online.

Most recently Software Engineering Manager at Amazon where I was building Buy with Prime and AWS IQ. Currently working on something of my own.

After two failed ventures and one successful IPO of an omnichannel retailer, I’ve developed a deep expertise in the ecommerce, luxury retail, and payments industries. I help start-ups in similar industries with product development, technical direction, and growth. Reach out via email or LinkedIn if you want to chat.

I spend my free time designing useless tools that never see the light of day, volunteering at local after-school programs that teach coding, and criticizing software bloat and the incredibly unnecessary overengineering that plagues most companies today.
