Hi! I'm Maxwell Obi
Welcome to my website - an online repo documenting my thoughts, experiments, opinions (mine and mine alone) and general perspective on things; Tech related and otherwise.
I am a Co-founder of Amplified Payments and currently its CTO - Amplified is a Fintech startup building a pan African ecosystem of tools and platforms that connects banks, telcos and businesses to their customers and drives the adoption of digital financial services. One of such platforms is mTransfers
I have a Bsc. in Computer Science, I worked for Unified Payments Systems where I was part of the team that built their core payment infrastructure and went on to Head product dev at Platform Technologies, working on solutions for state and federal governments, and now, Amplified.
I have vast experience with various core back-end technologies, system design and devops and I am a Machine Learning & Deep Learning enthusiast - As a fun side project, I am working on a framework for harvesting basic traffic telemetry for self driving cars in Africa. - I will document this as it matures.
Fun fact: I hope to be a race car driver in next life 😊, - I love driving, unfortunately Lagos is never the place to drive.
