Profile Picture

Hi, I'm Meha Masum, I'm a seasoned software engineer.

I do my part in making the world a better place by making the web open, fun and more useful.

More about me

I'm a programmer and lifelong learner.
I love writing software, and I am grateful that I get to make a living doing it.

I led my team to win 5 international software competitions during college.
I find it extremity enjoyable to solve a real-world problem by writing software.
So I still take some time out, every year, to participate in top software competitions around the world. Like everyone else, I too have to keep up with the latest trends, and I believe this helps me a lot with that.

Recently, I have been writing open source software to help nonprofit organizations. My collaborative mapping software written for the Jane Goodall Institute won the DocuSign Good Code award.

I feel like I'm a jack of all trades and master of a few.
‘Roll up your sleeves and get the job done’ - is my motto.

Values I hold dear

  • Being kind

    To each other and to ourselves.
    We should not pass out an opportunity to help someone in need.

  • Showing humility

    To know, accept, and be who we are while demonstrating modesty about our accomplishments and gifts, admitting mistakes, and valuing others.

  • Showing grit

    To advance despite adversity.
    No whining. No complaining. No excuses.

  • Passing on the knowledge

    To share what we learned with everyone else, free of cost. Because it costs a candle nothing to light another candle.
