Mohammad Ishfaque Jahan Rafee

Network and Web developer

Hello! Thanks for visiting my page. I’m Rafee. I’m as aspiring software professional living in Edmonton, Alberta. While my primary insterest is in backend and networking, I do a little bit of front-end work, such as this.

Right now I am pursuing Masters in Information Systems Security at Concordia University, Montreal. While that might be little surprising given my location, in this remote world nothing is impossible!
BUET
My story started in Bangladesh, a small country in South Asia with massive potential. From my childhood, I was fascinated by science and math. This fascination brought me to study engineering in the best engineering institution in Bangladesh, BUET.
After graduation, I first worked as a pre-sales engineer at Huawei. In that position, I had to communicate with all levels of customers. Some of my customers had years of technical experience. They were concerned with the minute technical details of the solutions. At the same time, CXO level customers were more concerned with the business impact. These experiences let me develop my technical and non-technical abilities simultaneously.
Huawei
ZTE
Following that, I switched over to a more sales-oriented role at ZTE. There, I got the opportunity to work on IV-Tier Data Center project (near USD 200M). This project had lots of moving parts, which required constant monitoring. Due to the size of the project, my impact was nominal. However, it was a humbling experience.
Now I am studying for MEng at the Information Systems Security at Concordia University. While this may seem unconventional (following my experience), it's a continuation of my enthusiasm for Cloud Computing and Networks. In addition to academics, I have experience with AWS and GCP. I am an AWS Certified Cloud Solution Architect - Associate and Google Cloud Certified Associate Cloud Engineer.
