Co-Founder & CEO
“The aim at the end of the day truly was and still is to build a platform for students, by students.”
Skrambler started in 2017 as the passion project of a young Dubai student named Kassem Ezzeddine. Kassem has been surrounded by technology his whole life and took an interest in coding and app development at a young age. In his teenage years Kassem, like most youth in Dubai began spending money on almost every outing and soon felt that he was overspending. After doing some research he discovered all of Dubai’s discount apps were either paid or were based on a gimmick. He set out to solve this problem and 6 months later, Skrambler was born. Kassem has since graduated high school and is working on Skrambler full time to grow the project and expand it further into the MENA region

Around the same time of Skrambler’s creation Kareem (Kassem’s Brother) took on the responsibility of marketing Skrambler; he has worked on the merchandising and advertising of Skrambler and is responsible for the management of the social media team as well as the marketing strategy. Kareem is still continuing his high school education and hopes to continue working with Skrambler throughout the foreseeable future.
