Hi, My name is Mahbub


About Me

Mahbub Iftekhar


Hard-working, affable grafter who welcomes each challenge as an opportunity. With a depth of experience in multi-discipline high-detail projects, new opportunities in the fast-moving, cutting-edge technical landscape are deeply exciting.

Having learned lessons or achieved success at each turn - within prize-winning teams pioneering the latest Web3 technologies, or designing high complexity flight-radar systems - I relish the next big challenge.
