Hi! I’m Olugbenga (“GB”) – a Tech Nerd genuinely passionate about technology. If you sit in a conversation with me for five minutes, you would understand why.
I love Arsenal, South African house music, and Coke!
Now, I could spend the next few paragraphs talking about myself, but I’d rather talk about the rockstars on my team that do all the work to carry Flutterwave into new heights
When we think of technology and start-ups in Nigeria and beyond, we rarely hear of all the incredible female talent that drive innovative ideas to completion, and play a key role in defining our industry’s excellence
With that said, I want to talk about some of the women of Flutterwave that always inspire us to greater heights.
I’ll start off with Gbonjubola, or Gbee as we fondly call her, who we hired as our first female Software Engineer in 2017.
Can I also talk about Jo-Sharon? She started off in Quality Assurance and now leads our Corporate Customer Success team
Also, have you ever wondered how we are thriving in Kenya? Well, another one of our rockstars Clara made that happen! She held it down in that market.
We are now operational in 6 markets (Nigeria, Ghana, Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania) pretty much due to our Expansion and Partnership pioneer Omosalewa.
I’m especially excited about our new Chief Operating Officer Bode, who is a rockstar with over 15 years of working experience in the bag.
I am surrounded with superstars and I cannot wait to unveil the rest of the team to the world.
Anyone can be a leader but being a great leader is no easy feat; so, when I think about the team, I start the day with fresh confidence and excitement.
Payments is people. And people matter.
Bring on the madness.— Olugbenga Agboola
