My name is Babajide Owosakin (but most people call me Jide - It's shorter and easy to remember ;)). I am a Software Engineer from Lagos Nigeria, currently based in Berlin, Germany. I currently work as a Software Engineer at GetYourGuide. Previously, I worked at Andela and Softcom.
Outside of work, I help early-career technologists find their footing in the tech industry through Techstarta. At Techstarta, I do a range of work, including:
- Writing about getting started in tech and career growth.
- Curating learning paths for tech fields.
- Interviewing practicing techies in my network.
- Creating real-world challenges for early-career techies to apply their knowledge.
If you're thinking about a career in tech, you should definitely check Techstarta.
When I'm not making software, you will find me reading, creating simple designs with Canva, playing the piano, listening to music, writing or watching a movie. I also enjoy taking photos.
