I’m Olumide. I live in Nigeria, where I’ve contributed to building some excellent products.
Growing up, I wasn’t really sure of what I wanted to do. Firstly, I wanted to be Medical Doctor, later an Aeronautic Engineer, at some point I even thought of becoming an Astronaut. One thing was certain, I wanted to contribute to solving big problems and leave our world in a much better place than I met it.
My love for computers came by in my teenage years - this is because this is the first time I have been really exposed to using the computer. I fell in love deeply and decided early on while in the university to make a career as a software engineer despite studying Materials Science & Engineering. I started learning, built various products used by students while deepening my experience in developing top-notch software solutions using modern development tools and stacks.
I spent the next few years working in both contract and full time roles helping develop tools and products in various industries including Fintech, Telecoms, Ed-tech amongst others. I have contributed to solutions that have served millions of people across the African continent.
Today, I’m a fullstack engineer and CTO, Whilst developing and improving on various products I’m privileged to be a part of, I also provide guidance to team members and lead other software engineers in various capacities. I still want to do more, and I really can’t wait to hear from you so that we can discuss how I can use my expertise to your advantage
