Discovering Coding

During my time at university, I stumbled upon a coding bootcamp. Intrigued, I decided to give it a try. The experience was transformative—it opened my eyes to web development and set me on a path to becoming a frontend engineer.

I was particularly drawn to how coding combined creativity with problem-solving.

The Start of Something New

I started my professional career as a Frontend Engineer at Bento Africa in December 2020. Here, I collaborated with cross-functional teams to build innovative solutions, like a wallet system that reduced salary disbursal times and expanded product features to support multiple countries. My efforts were crucial in launching high-value features and creating a design system for consistency.

My Path to Frontend Engineering

My journey began in Nigeria, where I grew up with a fascination for technology. From an early age, I was captivated by the potential of computers and the internet. However, it wasn’t until I discovered coding that I truly found my passion.

Leading the Way at Fluidcoins

In August 2021, I took on the role of Lead Frontend Engineer at Fluidcoins. I spearheaded the development of “Flip by Fluidcoins,” a mobile app that facilitated earning, spending, and saving in stablecoins, achieving significant user engagement and transaction volumes.

I also developed essential merchant frontend products, contributing to over $20 million in transaction volumes.

In my spare time,

When I'm not coding, I enjoy exploring new technologies, taking new courses on Frontend Masters, engaging with the developer community.

Other than that, you'll find me playing basketball and swimming
