Ilgın Kanat


I am a software developer with a passion for solving digital problems and creating web and mobile applications. I have a degree in Journalism from İstanbul Üniversitesi, where I learned how to communicate effectively and present information in a clear and engaging way.

I have over six years of experience in developing software solutions for various clients and industries, using MySQL, MSSQL, PHP, C#, and other technologies. Most recently, I worked on a project related to London Council concessionary travel pass implementations, Freedom Pass and Taxicard, at The ESP Group. I wrote, tested, and delivered code for the backend of the application, and collaborated with other developers and stakeholders to ensure the project met the requirements and expectations. I also have experience in developing Android applications.

Recently, I have founded Uppumatu as an Education Technology and Digital Presence providers for SMEs. Our business endeavour grows with very well foundation of business partnerships and sponsorships.

Recently, we have issued a sponsorship to the Karabakh School, an educational institution that is actively working with kids in Azerbaijan, Karabakh. I am proud to be a contributor of digital transformation of Azerbaijan.

I am currently volunteering at TedApp, a digital democracy platform. I am helping to improve the functionality and usability of the application, as well as adding new features and fixing bugs. I enjoy working with a team of dedicated and talented volunteers, and contributing to a noble cause that I care about.

I am always eager to learn new skills and technologies, and to apply them to real-world challenges. I am looking for opportunities to work on exciting and innovative projects, where I can use my expertise and creativity to deliver high-quality and user-friendly software solutions.
