He has always been an open and inviting person, and very easy to talk to. He has great attendance and has been highly open to feedback provided to him from his client and management. I have enjoyed my time being Zubair’s CRM and hope to continue working alongside this great employee in the future.”
Zubair’s Team Lead, RK, also had good things to say: “Zubair is one of the most punctual developers of my team. He is very sociable and cooperative.

So give me some thoughts about your time with the company. How do you feel about Allshore/Datum/Zepcom and working with American clients?
I have been working with clients from the US from the start of my career, and a few of the clients in my previous company were from Brazil too. I haven’t found any problems or issues in working with any of these clients. All were really great people and were very cooperative.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be?
It would be our holy places in Saudi Arabia.
So tell me about your family.
I got married in January 2008, and I have two daughters. One is 4 years old and other is 4 months. They are Allah’s beautiful gifts for me.
What do you and your family like to do together?
They just want me to be at home always, since I only get to see my family on the weekends.
Where do you stay during the week to be close to work?
In the previous office location, it was just in the same neighborhood as the office. Now, it takes about 20-30 minutes to drive.

What are 3 things you never leave home without?
When I am at home and not leaving for office (coming to Islamabad), I don’t care about anything. I leave everything at home: my mobile, wallet, card etc. When I am coming here though, I have to take all these with me.
If you could have a super hero power, what would it be?
I’d like to be like “The Flash” so that I can reach my home with a blink of eye.
