Ahmet tries to find ways to improve status quo. "You say there's some documentaon, let me see If I can complete it", "How do you do task X, let's try to automatise it!". He's not afraid of diving deep on any issue that falls into his hands or of spending his me on making things easier to the next SDE.

Mücahit Kantepe

It is rare to work with an engineer like Emre who has both theoretic and practical knowledge in diverse areas. I worked with him when I did not have much experience. His advice and ways of solving problems helped me a lot to improve my skills. Besides, he is always cheerful and a great motivator for everyone around him in the company. There is no doubt that he would be an exceptional leader in any company!

Dr. Uzay Çetin

Working with Ahmet Emre is a pleasure. He is hardworking, good at programming, very helpful, organized and eager to learn and adapt to new technologies. His theoretical knowledge spans a lot from complex network analysis to big data.

Melih Sözdinler

Emre is definitely research oriented and passionate to be innovative person. He proved that with his research aspect being co-author of several journal papers. In Robinviz project, we worked together and I feel myself lucky to meet with him and complete that research with one conference and journal paper. He is also a good software engineer and you can understand that from his neat coding references. He also loves sharing his ideas and being open minded, and as I follow him, he is also addictive blogger. I believe, he has a brilliant future and he will adopt any project easily. Additionally, he has good communication skills. Within project based jobs, he will be key member of any project and he can also use his communication and software abilities to lead projects.

Melih Birim

There are lots of things to say about Emre, but first thing that you are going to realize is, he is smart, and humble. During his internship at Alcatel-Lucent, Emre was a very productive intern, and within 30 days he was always keen to learn new things and eager to explain ideas behind Python and Django, even for an intern the knowledge level was over many developers we've already hired. After his intership, our friendship has kept growing, and will be.

Fatih Ergül

Ahmet has a great gift and special talents to solve unexpected problems and cases with no doubt. He is a good team player and tolerant. He is one of the few person that I hope to work again.
