Youssef in a few words

Lead frontend engineer with 5 years of front-end experience at heart. I have experienced working with all 3 popular javascript frameworks but Vue is one which I enjoy very much.

I have architected and built several enterprise-sized modular web applications with over 200 endpoints for Lenevo of South East Asia and a few large SaaS projects in Germany. I have experience being a Lead frontend engineer at a couple of startups.

You’ll get all the expected stuff like a great professional service and a fast turn around as I value high-quality design as much I do for code.

I am super adaptive, doing what it takes to get the job done and I love to learn and expand.

Youssef is a very experienced Developer who not only excels expectations on the coding side, but also on the business side. He understands very well how to break down the clients expectations into technical tasks and how to transition them into code. Youssef has mastered the art of abstracting away complicated processes and will recognize potential issues of an undertaking and present solutions to them. He is a very friendly and outgoing person who takes his time for his clients and strives to deliver the best product and experience in the process. I can unquestionably recommend Youssef be it for small or large scale projects.
