summary

My strong learning capacity and emphatic communication skills enable me to adapt and effectively engage in multiple areas in the vast field of IT. Right after graduation in 2006, I started my professional career in IT support and after a few months, I transitioned to working with SAP. This is where I gained 90% of my total working experience, primarily as an SD/LE Techno-Functional Consultant with additional experiences in ABAP programming, FICO, MM, and Basis administration . I then moved to Germany in 2017 and started working with cloud applications, initially as an Application Developer (Java) and now as a DevOps Engineer. The principles and practices of DevOps piqued my interest, and I believe that my diverse experience has a considerable advantage in this discipline.
