What is something about the way we work that you want to fix?
Due to COVID-19, we have to work remotely. Even though that works well with tools like ours, I would want to see my colleagues in person 🙂
What do you do at Reasonal?
I work on the front-end and back-end parts of the product. I enjoy converting designs to something functional.
Why are you good at doing what you do?
What do you like about working at Reasonal?
I believe the idea we are working on is brilliant, helpful, and much needed. More so, the colleagues at Reasonal are such a huge motivation for me.
What’s your background?
I'm from Iran. My parents were teachers and because of that, I used to read lots of books at home when I was a kid. I got interested in coding during high school. I used to implement programming homework of friends of mine and that is what made me a good programmer.
In my free time, I used to play football a lot, play football games (FIFA 🙂), and watch football matches. Full-stack football 🙂 Football and coding were my life - and still are.
I did my Bachelors in Information Technology. During university, I used to work on multiple projects including some video games like PacMan, RiverRide, and Birds Hunter, which was fun. I was also the TA for programming courses and I still like to teach programming to everyone.
Right after graduation, I started my job as a mobile and front-end developer, and here we are now.

What are the values that drive you?
Racial equality and peace
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I like reading history books and playing video games (mostly FIFA 🙂 ), playing football and ping pong, and I also enjoy making programming tutorial videos.
