Women of Softcom

Jessica Iwuanyanwu

How would you describe your work at Softcom? And what are you most proud of?

I work as a Frontend Developer, and my work at Softcom is to build user interfaces that users can interact with on their browsers. Many of the solutions we provide for our clients need to be interacted with, and that’s where I come in.


Every time I see a product I’ve worked on being used internally or externally, I’m so excited.

What does choosing to challenge mean personally for you?

Challenge does not necessarily come from a negative perspective for me; it just means choosing to make a positive impact in the best way possible, raising my head high and representing myself as a brand that must stand out.

What would access and inclusion look like for you in the Africa Softcom is trying to build?
Simply put, access and inclusion would translate to an Africa where there are no limitations. An Africa where financial exclusion does not exist; where our data is properly harnessed in ways that are beneficial to us; an Africa where anyone can set their mind on a goal and achieve it because they are in no way disadvantaged.
How did you get into the tech environment?
I got into the tech space through some of my senior colleagues who believed in me. One of them said to me “I believe you can do it”, and so I did it.
What do you do for fun?
I love playing table tennis, cooking, sewing, and watching movies.
Tell us two truths about yourself and one lie.

– I love to sing.

– I am friendly.

– I can swim.
