API & Integration Platform Architect @ From January 2015 to Present (1 year) United Arab EmiratesSenior Consultant and Team Lead @ At Ricston Ltd, I started as a junior Java developer, where the my main duty was to provide support for customers working with Mule ESB. I also helped in developing the first training materials for the same product. After being promoted to Java developer, I started providing support to paying customers and developing new features for Mule as well as bug fixing.
During this period, I also started gaining knowledge on Android and was involved in an integration project to link an Android application with multiple CRMs using Mule.
I was also involved in the development of the Mule MSMQ connector which today is part of the Mule Enterprise package. This required knowledge about the COM/DCOM+.

I also helped clients develop their system and help their own developers solve their Mule ESB issues, or any other Java, architecture, or integration issue.
Another area I worked in is performance tuning, such as JVM tuning, and Mule tuning. Some of these projects include (not limited to):
- A health insurance customer in the US
- European Parliament in Luxembourg
- A price comparison company in the UK
- A major car racing company in the UK
- An outsourcing company in India
- A major telecom and network operator in Sydney

- An international body in the Middle East, Palestine
- A major logistics company based in Japan, the job was carried out in the U.S.
