Indian based software engineer Amitay Isaacs was studying his Doctor of Philosophy in Canberra when he replied to an ad for systems engineering assistance with a rural telecommunications company based in SE NSW.
YLESS4U needed part time specific systems and network administration skills which meant Amitay could still undertake his studies while working. His wife Deanna also worked in sales to help cover Canberra’s high rental costs.
Amitay’s experience in computer systems and networking, and in high tech innovation and the small business environment, suited YLESS4U’s business operations. YLESS4U is a small rural telecommunications company serving rural and remote areas in SE NSW with high speed data communications via microwave radio links, with a customer base that included research and education organisations.
Amitay quickly became an asset to the company, installing programmed equipment and troubleshooting network problems. With his studies ending, YLESS4U wanted to retain his skillset. Following investigation, YLESS4U found Amitay could be successfully sponsored by YLESS4U through the employer sponsored Regional Skilled Migration Program.
With guidance from RDA Southern Inland, Amitay and YLESS4U completed the paperwork and received prompt feedback and processing of his 189 Visa application. The 187 Visa allows applicants to live and work in Australia as a permanent resident.
Amitay and Deanna were proud to receive their permanent residency on 26th June 2012.
Amitay now works as a software engineer with IBM in Canberra while continuing to assist YLESS4U.
YLESS4U is proud to have sponsored Amitay who visits the business regularly to discuss technical developments, and keep abreast of the rapid movement in technology.
