Mahmoud joined Matin at Balanced in January 2011 during the Y Combinator Winter 2011 session -- just after his previous employer, Milo.com, was acquired by eBay. Mahmoud was employee #4 at Milo.com where he designed automated product matching systems. He built high-frequency trading algorithms for Wachovia Securities before that. Mahmoud grew up in NY and Maryland after moving from Egypt.
Mahmoud graduated Magna Cum-Laude with a BS in Computer Engineering from University of Maryland, College Park, but actually learned to code by reverse engineering World of Warcraft.
