Team colleague / Lufthansa

Walid is a great guy, hardworking, innovative and focussed. You can always count on him and rely on his expertise and enthusiasm. He was a very valuable team member and colleague. We also had a lot of fun together. I hope we will be on the same team again sometime.

Walid and I worked on two projects together. I learned a great deal from him. He is a super nice guy, knows his programming stuff well and always delivers excellent results within the set deadline. I can certainly say that Walid is effective in what he does and apart from that optimistic and dedicated.

Walid displays initiative. He is very knowlegeable about what he does. His support has really brought out the potential in us. He is open-minded, easygoing and professional. I’d highly recommend him as quick, creative and very resourceful. He can run with the best in his field.
