Meet Yaseen Ali – Founder of SymmFlow

Welcome to SymmFlow!  Yaseen is the founder and CEO of SymmFlow. He is originally from Pakistan and has been working and living in Ireland and later UK since 2006. With experience and background in Software Engineering and a deep cultural and business understanding of different countries. Yaseen brings a unique blend of technical expertise and cross-cultural business acumen. His goal at SymmFlow is to make it a UK company that is a strategic partner providing quality outsourcing and connecting businesses in the UK, USA and beyond with high-quality, cost-effective Software Engineering & Testing services in South Asia.

Yaseen’s Journey

Growing up Yaseen had a deep fascination with technology, having been introduced to a Commodore 64 C at an early age. This exposure to technology has profoundly shaped his career and interests.

He studied Business Administration before starting a computer import business in Pakistan. He would travel to Singapore to buy computers and then sell them in Pakistan, both wholesale and retail. This was a very good experience in importing, running a business, dealing with customers, and understanding different cultures.

To learn m
ore about computers and software, he decided to get a Master’s in Software Engineering. This led to an exciting research opportunity at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, in 2006, which in turn took him to work as a Software Engineer in Ireland and the UK. During his employment, he dealt with people from all over the world, including the UK, USA, EU, China, India, and South America. He had the chance to learn from and work with established companies like Intel, IBM, Mastercard and recently Boeing. He also submitted a few fintech-related patents while working with Mastercard.

During this time, Yaseen learned about the difficulties big companies face with finding software developers, testers and other technical personnel.  He also worked with teams in different countries and saw a disconnect with their outsourcing team. Using what he had learned and observed, he founded SymmFlow. The goal was to create a company that offers Software Solutions through outsourcing in a focused and more connected way.
