I’ve been an active Software Engineer for 15 years now, with experience launching and scaling 2 startups in France and Germany. During these 15 years, I have worked and lived in Malaysia and Germany, experienced multicultural and agile startup working environments. My former venture to date is TalentBridge GmbH, a service that connects Tech Talent from my home area MENA to Tech Companies in Europe. TalentBridge has been active for over 2 years and has served over 10 clients in Berlin, Amsterdam, and London! We’ve seen rapid growth because we’ve strategically hired 18 high caliber developers and product managers and have a pool of 800 talents eager to work with us.
As mentioned I have been cooperating as CTO in residence for a french startup called jahan.info for about a year, building the tech structure and architecture very service-oriented following fully microservices architecture and also providing and managing tech team by TalentBridge to develop the complex business intelligence product applying ML and data mining.
From the TalentBridge experience getting and analyzing feedback from clients and carefully researching the outsourcing market, I figure out the differences between a product-oriented and project-oriented approach in software development can cause a big difference in features of a startup or even a corporation. Based on that, Agileful got founded with the core team from TalentBridge, who were aligned with the new company values to make a meaningful transform into a product-oriented development company becoming a mate for our partners and clients developing lovely products.
