Dear Human Resources Manager,

I am currently exploring career opportunities in Qatar that can utilize my skills and experience in Control Systems Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Project management.

I have more than ten years of work experience in USA, Canada and more recently in India and have a Master's degree (MSc.EE) in Electrical Engineering from Oklahoma State University. I am a certified PMP - Project Management Professional. I am also aiming to prepare for ITIL certification.

My experience includes hands on issue and incident management, troubleshooting and debugging of Systems and analyzing failures. This included working on fixing hardware and PCB failures, reviewing the system design, working on drivers and firmware updates and testing and maintenance of new systems. The systems I worked on ranged in complexity from a multiple card system controlled by multiple microcontrollers and processors to a simpler PCI based system.

I have extensive experience in applying the best practices of project management and continuous improvement methodology in managing products, projects, customers and hardware development.  In my recent role the aspects of product and project management that I perform include communicating with the stakeholders, analyzing requirements, working with the development team in planning, prioritizing and scheduling the deliverables, and providing the tested deliverables to the client. The product management cycle was completed by performing market requirement analysis and providing report to senior management for business alignment and technology alignment. I have also authored technical documents and made technical presentations.

I am a Canadian citizen and am presently working on a short term contract with National Oil and Gas Services in Doha, Qatar. I can be reached at +974-3364-8315 or +974-4486-8266.
