Oussama is a skilled professional which I enjoyed working with. Even though we worked remotely, Oussama high responsiveness and high English compensated on that gap. His professional work included not only good control in all IT aspects, but also went the extra mile and included highly detailed and organized documentation. I would highly recommend Oussama to any organization, big as small.

I have worked with Oussama initially as a supervisor during his internship at Predictix and later on as a colleague. He is the hard worker, the fast learner and the team contributor, all in the same person. I would certainly vouch for his skills in Python, Java and LogiQL.
