Get To Know Tomiwa

Before joining the firm, I was an individual contributor, largely playing the role of an industrious engineer. As a McKinsey digital specialist, my role revolves around leading people.

Prior to McKinsey, I worked as a software engineer at multiple companies, including a Nigerian e-commerce company, a startup, and a R&D company. After I completed a nanodegree in machine learning, I joined McKinsey as a senior digital analyst in the Lagos office.

Before joining the firm, I was an individual contributor, largely playing the role of an industrious engineer. As a McKinsey digital specialist, my role revolves around leading people. I focus on resilient software systems development and solution architecture.

Most of my time at the firm has been spent in the financial services industry helping create new digital banking solutions across Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.

A large firm with the feel of a startup

We work like a fast-growing startup that can deliver a minimum viable product in 16 weeks. We work to shape the direction of the client’s new business endeavor, which is possible because of our team structure and army of experts across the firm.

The project I am most proud of

During the pandemic, I was tech lead on a client engagement to accelerate lending for large development projects in the Middle East. We curated a digital experience for businesses, making it easier for them to seek funding.

During the project, we applied design thinking and involved decision makers and customers in the engineering process. We built the frontend with React and the backend with microservices written in Kotlin. The infrastructure was in a private cloud, providing a managed Kubernetes cluster. We streamlined the architecture for reliability and resilience without sacrificing security.

Important fraud alert

McKinsey has become aware of scams involving false offers of McKinsey employment. The scams and false offers use imposter websites, email addresses, and text messages. None of these offers are legitimate, and McKinsey's recruiting process never involves interviewing via instant message, nor requires candidates to purchase products or services, or process payments on our behalf.
