About Okiemute

As a full-stack developer, I am passionate about making people's lives easy by implementing simple but effective solutions. However, I'm a business-minded individual, with genuine interests in several other topics besides computers, like music, health, photography and forex, just to mention a few.

I also have 4+ years of experience in software development and I have been programming websites & web applications for more than 10 years.

During the last decade, I have completed a good number of projects in a few different sectors ranging from personal projects and trivial ideas, to academic, corporate and professional solutions.

In the past, I ran several small businesses on my own and I was the CTO of an SME-focused IT & Digital Marketing solutions provider in Cyprus where I was mainly responsible for the technological issues of the Startup as well as the lead developer and an executive.

I am currently the Chief Technical Officer of ChowHub, an online food discovery and ordering platform that helps people discover great places to eat their favorite meals in Nigeria.

I also run an International Education Consulting Agency in Nigeria that facilitates the process of gaining genuine admissions into a select number of foreign universities. I also lead a website development team under the name of BackandFront and we are into simple and effective web solutions.

Over the years, my acquired skills and knowledge have applied both professionally and otherwise in different areas including project management, financial planning, strategy development, concept implementation, corporate structures, customer relations, marketing & advertising, analysis and critical thinking.

When I'm not writing codes, I'm usually taking photos, listening to good music, blogging or socializing online.
