Mohamed Mohamed joins our growing software development team as our new Senior Developer. Working with our Chief Technology Officer Tim Mutlow, Mohamed cannot wait to get stuck into developing and improving our technology.
After developing his coding skills for a decade, Mohamed now takes on his first full-time developer role at Operance.
We caught up with him to learn more about his background and what he’s looking forward to most about joining Operance.
Hey Mohamed, how have you found your first few weeks at Operance?
At the moment, it’s only my second week as a Senior Developer.
I’ve just been finding my feet and getting familiar with everything – the code base, the structure of how things are run and the overall architecture of the app.
What’s your background, and how did this lead to working with us?
I started my journey into programming around ten years ago – all self-taught. I taught myself how to develop native apps, websites and some backend tech, all while working and running my family restaurant.
While working at the restaurant with my brothers, I took on some freelance work, some side projects and contracts here and there to try and develop my skills and keep up to date.
Nine years later and I wanted to jump into a full-time role. The restaurant was fun while it lasted, but this is my true calling.
I’ve lived in Canada and Dubai, and I’ve now moved to the UK as I start this new chapter in my life.
‘Wow! That’s quite the change. We hope you don’t hate the rainy weather over here too much.’
I do quite like the rain, actually. I like the gloominess of it – it’s my kind of vibe. I’ve wanted to live in the UK since I was a kid, so it’s pretty cool everything lined up for me to get this role.
What was it that drew you to the role?
It was the tech – Operance uses Flutter, and I’ve been using it for the past four years. Ever since Flutter came out, I’ve been drawn to it and wanted to start learning and mastering it.
However, there are not a lot of Flutter jobs out there, so when I saw that Operance used the framework, I immediately applied for the Senior Developer role.
What are you most looking forward to about working at Operance?
I’ve always found construction interesting but never had the opportunity to work in the industry, so this was a perfect opportunity to learn something new.
It’s going to be a pretty cool adventure. I’m a guy from Canada getting a job in the UK and changing his whole life.
Also, to get a first full-time job with a platform that I actually love using is great.
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Well outside of Operance, I like to dabble in cooking and learn new tech. I also enjoy going on 3-7 hour trips with friends and family, visiting new places and trying new food. I will drive for 7 hours for a drink and a bagel to Montreal any day!
Aside from amazing food and tech, I enjoy playing Tetris and occasionally take on side gigs like websites or graphic design work just to keep my other skills in use, and broaden my skillset.
