I am Syed Omar Faruk Towaha. Currently I am working as the Chief Technology Officer at HEXit, a top notch tech company in Sylhet. I Joined HEXit in 2017. My responsibilities as the CTO at HEXit are leading all the groups and teams of the company, planning annual budgets for the company, grooming the employees, helping with any technical difficulties, deal with large scaled projects, conduct a different kind of clients. I personally help the iOS and Android Group. I sometimes handle the clients. I was the Director of SwapnoBangla IT for almost 1.5 years, a software development focused IT firm. In this role, I lead the company’s software engineers, web developers, designers, and content developers and managing the annual spend. Our most exciting work to date was creating a social media and online advertising campaign that generated enormous media buzz. Not only did we have fun creating that campaign, but also we found it rewarding to see the results. We have built a number of web applications, eCommerce websites, Android and iOS applications and personal websites in last one year. Before joining SwapnoBangla IT, I worked as a freelancer. I worked with a number of famous companies like Wix, Foxit Inc, JetBlue, NetApp etc. while I was working as a freelance software developer.

I was selected for the internship at Google in 2016 as a JavaScript Engineer in San Francisco. I worked with Apple as Technical Support Agent from 2014-2015. I am a self-motivated fast learner and I know my limits. I really don't like to quit, I just keep working until it is done. Yes, I do mistakes a lot but what I believe is try and error method works. I have a major problem and that is, I can not stop till my project/work is completely done. I do not believe in luck what I believe is in self-belief.
