About Montaser, Mahmoud and QUAL.IT

QUAL.IT is a socially responsible IT enterprise, which provides high quality software testing at competitive prices. The enterprise employs local Palestinian IT professionals, who conduct software testing for customers around the world. This way, the enterprise takes advantage of the international outsourcing trend and seeks to use the high Palestinian unemployment rate as an advantage. Due to the large number of unemployed IT graduates in Palestine, the salary rate is kept relatively low compared to the international market.

The enterprise seeks to make a social impact by only employing local IT graduates. QUAL.IT’s vision is to have 450 employees in 10 years – a number that would have a great impact on the unemployment rate in the Palestinian IT sector. Furthermore, the enterprise is currently seeking to develop a training program, which will teach others about international software testing procedures and inspire them to think outside the box and come up with their own initiatives.

Working with the initiative is Mahmoud Mahameer and Montaser Amro. Mahmoud has a background in Computer Information Technology. He is engaged in a nonprofit organization, which conducts incubator programs in IT. His motivation for attending the SE training is to gain experience within the field and give trainings on the subject in the nonprofit organization.

Montaser is a Civil Engineer by education. He has previously worked for a nonprofit organization called Inter Faith, which is concerned with creating dialogue between practitioners of different religions. He hopes to increase his knowledge of the entrepreneurial scene in Palestine, while networking to find partners for QUAL.IT.
