Chadi in a few words

I assist businesses innovate and scale using software engineering and by constantly challenging the status quo. An innovator at heart; I am often developing personal products that could positively impact people's lives.

Canadian Engineer; I Relocated in 2020 to Lebanon (to be close to parents) after 14 years in Canada.

Looking forward to assist European companies either remotely ( lower rates working from Lebanon) or on premise for specific roles (PS: as a Canadian citizen, I will not need a visa to European countries and as such I can work on premise/visit any European city when needed.)
