Think Hisham is awesome?
Vouch for them.

Ayman R Arekat
We worked together  •  Owner / Managing Director, International Finance Bureau. Previously Partner, The Abraaj Group. University of Houston grad.
He knows what he is talking about and continues proving it by doing it. I would want to be on his side always.
Simon Potter
We worked together  •  CTO, Kwiziq and Technology Director, Spottmedia.
Hisham is a thoroughly competent and reliable technical expert. He has a deep knowledge of a number of very practical and versatile technol ... ogies and has produced high quality enterprise software for many years. His technical expertise would be invaluable to any startup that needed it.
James Sandoval
We worked together  •  Director, DoublePortrait. Previously Advisor, iCompetence GmbH.
As I noted in the recommendation I wrote for his LinkedIn profile, Hisham is a rare and wonderful person and professional. I especially valu ... ed his thinking, ideas and his commitment to unequivocally and diligently rise to a challenge with guts and grace. This, among other things, made working with him a complete pleasure. Specifically, Hisham's dedication to the redevelopment of the technology and infrastructure of a business I co-founded w/ another brilliant guy (who moved on), and to helping lift the business from the depths of obscurity to a product with tremendous potential, was terrific to see and experience. I'd work with Hisham again in a heartbeat.
Charlie Brodie
They're my school  •  Integrations Developer, Peerius. Previously Automation Technician, Master Adviser.
Hisham is a uniquely competent guy, whether hacking away at a new feature or explaining difficult concepts to non-tech types, always with fr ... iendly demeanor and can-do attitude.
Fawaz S
They're my friends  •  Senior Project Manager, BMC Software. Previously Manager, Skysend Media.
he has great ideas..and a keen eye for detail and the big picture..
Bri Murphy
They're my school  •  Applications Developer, JPMorgan Chase & Co.. Previously Computer Science Masters Candidate, Birkbeck, University of London.
Hisham is extremely knowledgeable and professional entrepreneur that has a passion for what he does. He sees things through with the highest ... care and is bound to succeed in anything he pursues.

Simon Potter
CTO, Kwiziq and Technology Director, Spottmedia.
Not only has Simon the uncanny ability to juggle multiple projects at once, he does so with geographically distributed teams. I have the ple ... asure of working with him on one such project. His technical and people skills will surely not go amiss, no matter where or how a project team is stationed.

Bri Murphy
Applications Developer, JPMorgan Chase & Co.. Previously Computer Science Masters Candidate, Birkbeck, University of London.
A team player with a methodical and calm approach to solving problems. Bri has the uncanny ability to conquer the toughest coding challenges ... . She has "coder's intution" and can gracefully glide through ill-documented APIs. She really does think outside the box, even if there wasn't one to begin with!
