About Yesaya R. Athuman

Colleagues know me as a highly Creative Software Developer who can always be trusted to come up with the new approach. But I know that client's business come first, and I never try to impose my ideas on others. Instead, I spend a lot of time understanding business and the audience before suggesting ideas. I can (and often do) work well alone, but I'm at my best collaborating with others.
