Programmer

I’m a senior ASP.NET developer having more than 6 years of professional experience. I have hands-on experience in both frontend and backend. I’m skilled in technologies like HTML, JavaScript, ASP.Net, MySql, Angular, & C#. I help the team by managing their tasks and providing technical support where needed. I consider the whole team as a single unit and believe that as a team we can achieve all our targets. As for me OWNERSHIP of each task matters. I have done a BSc in Software engineering from a well reputed educational institute from Pakistan. AR works on the system which minimizes or controls the threat. This service is rare but very important as every type of threat has the potential to cause financial, reputational, regulatory, and/or strategic risk. AR systems minimize these kinds of threats that’s why I feel that I should be on the AR team.

 Our team is international and includes over 100 years in intelligence, threat, and risk analyst experience with backgrounds in government, military, law enforcement, and the private sector. We are proud to employ Veterans and experts that care about keeping people safer and have a passion for technology/threat assessment. If you are interested in joining the team, please send your resume to info@alpharecon.com and tell us about yourself and skills, why you appreciate our mission, and why you want to do to contribute!
