What is something about the way we work that you want to fix?
Working in medium to large teams will often entail a lot of running around after information from others, which is not very fun and not very efficient. While team communication has become so much easier, the problem of searching, finding, or losing information is becoming more pronounced. The context surrounding the documents we share or work on should be readily available.
What do you do at Reasonal?
I work on developing and improving the content extraction and processing pipeline that allows us to produce helpful predictions and suggestions for our users.
Why are you good at doing what you do?
Throughout my experience so far I have become accustomed to very diverse tasks, which has made me adaptable and able to learn fast on the fly.
What do you like about working at Reasonal?
I am very lucky to be working with such highly experienced and skilled colleagues, every interaction and discussion provides another opportunity to learn and grow. I am also very fond of the managerial style and the camaraderie that the team has developed.
What’s your background?
I was born and raised in Amman, Jordan to first-generation Palestinian immigrants. I lived in Amman all the way through high school and university, and spent a couple of years after my graduation working at a regional bank. After some time I realised I needed a change in career path, so I moved to Germany for my masters -- and here I am now.
What are the values that drive you?
I believe in moderation in all pillars of life: work, fun, food, sleep, etc. As I grow older am I also becoming a lot more aware of the huge responsibility we have towards the planet and the environment. That also has an impact to all aspects of life: from sustainable consumption to preservation and green transportation. Other than that, things tend to get philosophical - so I'll spare you the details.
What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
I enjoy spending time with friends, going to parties (R.I.P.), playing video games, watching good movies/series, reading fantasy novels, listening to music, or watching all kinds of sports.
