Kolawole O

For the past decade, I have gained experience in various technologies in different sectors including Financial Technology, HealthCare, Blockchain, Artificial Intelligence, and the Internet of Things. I am an expert in various technology stacks such as MEAN, MERN, and .NET. I find it easy to adapt to new technologies, frameworks, and libraries: and develop for production applications. I strongly believe that the science and technology field is a great incubation hub for innovation.

Client Reviews

ThriveCommunity:    
We have really liked Kola, his experience and his skills. He seemed like a perfect candidate and he actually performed great on his first test, but then when we have assigned him a big project he kind of lost it. His estimation of the project wasn't good which mostly lead to our dissatisfaction. On the other side, he is really good in communicating and giving updates and was always available to hoop up on the call.
