Before joining the Connect&GO team, Amin worked in Iran, South East Asia, England, Dubai and Denmark. His first job in Canada was with PBSC – a company that, according to Amin, is “without a doubt one of the best bike share solution providers in the world”. Amin feels lucky to have worked with amazing people from all over the world in industries such as finance, community and social networking, education, transportation and entertainment.
Amin graduated from Manchester Business School in Business Information Technology. He also has a second Masters degree in Environmental Management. Environmental studies have always been one of Amin’s passions and he hopes to further his education in the field at some point. Amin brings his enthusiasm and interest in innovation to the Connect&GO team as Senior Full Stack Developer, and we’re thrilled to have his positive energy in our office!
