About Nawaf

I've done many things in my career and the one thing I've come to learn is that I'm a problem solver in search for purpose and passion. My experience includes engineering, management and strategy consulting, and being a founder.

I'm good at the business side of things whether it's strategy, go-to-market, business analysis, financial modeling, etc. And because of my engineering background, I also have a solid understanding of techniology which allows me to develop trust and rapport with engineers and developers in the buiness. For example, I'm learning Deep Learning out of personal curiosity.

My personal passion is in applying technology for social good. This can be in education, health care, media, govtech or fintech.

I am looking for an opportunity where I can join a technical cofounder who can cover tech, development, and design.
