Bilkis joined ISSUP in February 2017 after having been on a career break for four years to spend time raising her two daughters. After graduating from UCL in Computer Science, Bilkis spent 13 years working as a Software Engineer in the IT field, for organisations like Symbian and Nokia. Bilkis has a wide range of skills to offer from full cycle application development to defect and release management. Whilst on her career break, Bilkis wanted to pursue her career in a different direction and was especially interested in the field of Web Development. After some retraining, Bilkis joined the ISSUP team as Web Developer, where she hopes to make a valuable contribution to the ISSUP website.
Outside of work Bilkis enjoys running and cooking, as well as spending time with her family.
