About Me

HELLO WORLD!!! I'm Anna Bek.

I am a highly analytical and goal-oriented Designer, specializing in Agile system and object-oriented programming, with an in-depth understanding of project life cycles, including all phases of system and software development. My true skills and abilities lie in understanding the depth of a project and how users will engage with the end result, making UX/UI a real focal point when it comes to any project. My strong academic background and attention to end-user/client experience, when identifying requirements, providing cost analysis, and developing implementation timelines, allow me to achieve great results.

As an effective team player, I know how to contribute within a team to ensure goals and specific deadlines are met; this, along with being able to work well individually and autonomously, allows me to contribute to the success of any project. Having the ability to provide optimum support within a company at all technical levels, specifically in operating systems and associated subsystems, I can also cover other bases when required, which can be extremely useful when it comes to a larger project or a situation where an assignment has pressure associated with it. Utilizing my expertise and knowledge in software, configuration, maintenance, and troubleshooting, I aim to contribute effectively and efficiently within an organization.
