Why Ahmad works at Substance

At the very young age I was beginning my journey as a software programmer. I was creating games using Visual Basic, I used my creativity to invent and explore new ways of developing computer algorithms. After graduating from college continued my professional development as a Computer Programmer. One of my favourite and most enjoyable projects to this point was the development of an Android Application for a cultural project in my city.

Working with passionate, friendly and hard-working colleagues makes me really enjoy working here. Also, having different types of projects to work on make the tech stack is really challenging and fun at the same time. After many roles, my tech development role here at Substance is my favourite.
