Hi! my name is Muhamad Saad Nurul Ishlah. I am an Indonesian (living in Australia) self-employed used to be a front-end designer and developer focusing on designing websites, web app, and/or mobile app using Sketch and Figma as my tool of choice. I then convert the design into HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript (usually Vanilla JS, jQuery as well as using frameworks such as ReactJS and MeteorJS).

I hold a Bachelor degree in Computer Science from Bogor Agricultural University (IPB University) and a Master degree in Computing from the Australian National University (ANU). With my friends at ANU, I co-foundered the Symberra company that is a cloud-based data analytics platform that specializes in large-scale data modelling and simulations. It is also a part of the first Griffin Accelerator program that was initiated in 2014 in Canberra.

Now I'm working at Qiscus (The Scalable Chat SDK & Messaging API for Your Apps) as Technical Account Manager on the mission for Enabling Conversation in Any Apps. Besides working at Qiscus, I'm also working as a Junior Lecturer at Information System Department, Vocational School, Universitas Pakuan.

Other Facts
