Women of Softcom

Adeola Adekoyejo

How would you describe your work at Softcom?
I would describe my work at softcom as being responsible for building the aspect of an application users interact with. This has to do with building aesthetic designs for products – not just making them beautiful – but putting accessibility, performance, and security well in place.
What would access and inclusion look like for you in the Africa Softcom is trying to build?
Access and inclusion in what we are trying to build at Softcom would mean that no one is left behind and fostering human growth by connecting people and business to value to improve lives.
How did you get into the tech environment?
I had the opportunity to study Computer Science and Engineering at the university, which was something I wanted right from the onset. But I didn’t really take coding seriously until my final year. I was practically into network engineering. When it was time for my final year project, I had to build a software and I must say that from that on, I never looked back on Network Engineering, and I don’t regret it.
What do you do for fun?
I take pictures of myself and explore a lot on social media – Instagram and Twitter in particular.


– I am photogenic

– I don’t like fried rice.

– I love to teach.
