Started my career working for ITWorx one of the biggest software services company in Egypt. Then moved on to a startup called Technivance where I was part of a great team working on an interesting E-Comerce solution.

After finishing development I went to Microsoft Advanced Technology Labs in Cairo (ATL Cairo) formerly known as CMIC (Cairo Microsoft Innovation Centre) and started working on for the Arabian markets.

Still at Microsoft I went to work with one of the greatest teams ever Machine Translation Team; owner of, there I was a front-end developer working on enhancing and evolving their services and finding new ways to use our great MT Engine.

Another great jump within Microsoft, I moved back to Bing. I am currently part of the Local Search team working hard to getting you relevant local listings in your search. My day to day job involves, managing a team of 6 developers, building rankers and machine learnt components to make your search results better.

Other than my work I have my own side projects that I enjoy to work on. I love open source technology and love to learn new things. I've been working with Ruby and Rails for about 2 years and used it to build Vagrant-Parallels; a plugin for vagrant VM management tool to be able to manage parallels vms, and it was successfully transitioned to Parallels Inc. for further development and maintenance.

I also apply my new learning to try and build my own company. I have a passion for building products and services which translates to building startups. I have a couple of unsuccessful startups:
1), Group buying site built with PHP operation in Egypt
2) Median Tech, Social opinion mining platform built with RubyOnRails

And I am trying again with my current idea UserTalk, a voice support solution for the web.
