Re:Coded wouldn’t be what it is today without an amazing team behind it. To celebrate the diverse faces in our team, we wanted to kick start an interview series so that you can get to know Re:Coded’s new faces a little better. We couldn’t think of a better person to start this series with than Mujtaba Al-Tameemi who has been a supporter of Re:Coded from our early days. Mujtaba recently joined the team as an instructor for our bootcamp in Gaziantep!
