The most amazing...
...solution I've developed is an interbank payment solution that is being used by millions of Nigerians daily.
Senior Software Engineer
- Worked with a team of developers to build an integrated governance risk and compliance solution that is being used by the internal staff of a commercial bank in Nigeria. Banks use the solution to manage all their processes, audits, and exceptions.
- Managed the back-end team to ensure we delivered the integrated governance risk and compliance solution at record time.
- Contributed to implementing an anti-fraud solution that three commercial banks are currently using to service millions of customers.
- Developed an interbank transfer service that is being used by millions of Nigerians daily.
- Developed Accesspay, a multichannel biller payment solution that enables billers to collect payments from their customers. Accesspay saves the bank millions of naira yearly because they replace about three third-party solutions in the bank.
- Maintained TUGA, a payment card management platform. The platform manages everything that has to do with card issuance.
- Implemented a global standing instruction (GIS) application to reduce the risk of lending to customers. With GIS, banks can debit customers regardless of which bank their funds reside in.
- Developed a complete school management suite from scratch. The solution manages all of the schools' day-to-day activities like grading, accounts, and fee collection. About thirty schools are using the solution to date.
- Worked alongside an intern to develop a mobile application for the school management solution. This provided extra ease in using the solution.
- Trained developers that eventually managed the source code.
- Maintained Bankone, Appzone's core banking application.
- Contributed to migrating Bankone to a more stable environment.
- Managed, maintained, and implement features on Tradeport, Appzone's web mall.
Many schools in Nigeria still rely on old paper and pen to keep track of students' records and activities. The challenge that comes with this old method, apart from the obvious stress teachers go through to keep track of students' activities, is the inability to derive useful insights from past records. Storing data in paper guarantees that helpful information can assist the children and their parents remains undiscovered. This problem and many other school-related challenges are what the application solves.
I developed the web interface of this solution and led a team of mobile developers to implement a mobile application for teachers and students.
Integrated Governance Risk and Compliance Solution
Staff can also raise issues and risk events as they occur, keep track of all the risks that have crystallized over time and determine the root cause to prevent future occurrences or at least minimize the impact. The solution also has a workflow management feature to handle all kinds of tasks and reviews within the bank.
I led the back-end team to deliver this solution in a record time.
