I've known Saad for about five years, and worked with him for about two of those. He is a very hard worker, gets the job done on time and correctly, and is a pleasure to work with. Plus he has a lot of expertise in a lot of development areas, and has been able to successfully troubleshoot some very strange problems we've had on our (very large) website.

Having Saad on our team makes the daily challenges of ecommerce much more palatable. From his cheery disposition and can-do attitude, to his breadth of knowledge with regard to fixing, developing, and improving our website.

Client Testimonials.

LinkedIn headshot of Nadia Huda, a WordPress development client.

We have worked with Saad for almost a year now and continue to be impressed by his quick thinking, extensive technical skills, and collaborative attitude. Saad has handled our web projects using Joomla, Hubspot, and First Spirit. First Spirit is not very popular in North America but Saad on-boarded quickly and migrated our website (with a lot of content) almost flawlessly onto the new platform. Another area that we were very impressed with Saad's out of the box thinking is our blog. Even though Hubspot team told us it was not possible, Saad found a workaround to be able to host our blog via Hubspot. We have been very happy with Saad's expertise and services and would recommend him to any organization.

During December of 2017 our firm decided it was time to upgrade our website. After receiving a positive recommendation from an trusted industry colleague we contracted with Saad Malik to perform this work. After conducting the initial interview he provided us with a number of potential site configurations and offered insight on current industry standards and trends. The work performed was exceptional as well as the attention to detail and follow-up customer service. We will not hesitate to recommend Saad's design services to our clients and other industry professionals.
