Hacker Noon's annual Noonie awards, hosted on NOONIES.TECH, seeks to find the best minds in the Tech industry today. One such impressive mind is Yassine Rachid from Canada.

Yassine is nominated in the *Software Development category *and is the Founder and CEO of Pairdesk. Let's learn more about him below!

1. Which 2020 Noonie have you been nominated for?

2. Tell us a bit about yourself.

At a young age, my computer scientist father shared his passion for information technology. Like him, I liked the problem-solving parts of this field and I decided to study for a Bachelor's Degree in Software Engineering.

After my graduation, I worked as a consultant for a few companies like Expedia and Trilliant Network. As a freelancer, I saw many limitations with the third-party freelancing platforms interacting between me and my clients. I had 2 choices: either be bogged down by the lengthy process of traditional consulting firms to work with my client, or go on a freelancing platform and be severely limited by their lack of features or high commission rates.

I chose neither and instead wanted to offer a better solution to empower freelancers and their clients, which led me to launch Pairdesk!

3. Tell us about the things you make / write / manage / build.

I mainly lead the technical effort when creating Pairdesk. My experience as an ex-freelancer was really helpful making the platform freelancer-centric and provide a better experience for freelancers, which makes life easier for clients as well!

Alongside Pairdesk, I decided to write articles on Hacker Noon to share my experience. And, since this week, I decided to create my own Youtube channel to make programming tutorials. I always loved teaching my friends and peers various things, and I thought I could share this passion with others!

4. What are you most excited about right now?

How our generation and the future ones have access to all the information gathered by humanity. The internet has granted us access to global knowledge, and it empowers us in so many ways.

5. What are you worried about right now?

I am worried that, despite this connected world, we keep isolating ourselves to our views and stop looking outwards and thinking outside the box. The Internet and our connected world should allow us to challenge our views and constantly evolve, and I'm worried it can just create echo chambers and stall us in improving ourselves.
