Hi, I'm Timi Ajiboye

I like to make things, especially things that work on computers. I also write.

Work

Helicarrier

I'm currently the CEO & CTO of Helicarrier. Our mission at Helicarrier is to financially connect the African, wherever they are in the world. To accomplish this, we're building:

  • Buycoins is the easiest place to buy, sell, and manage your cryptocurrency portfolio.
  • Sendcash is a crypto powered remittance product.
  • Sendcash Pay is a suite of developer tools that let you add borderless payment experiences to your digital product.

Others

  • I’m the CTO of Backdrop.
  • I invest in & help build first versions of products that I'd like to see exist - Tix, Betdemand, Convoy, etc.
I used to be a freelance software developer (web, mobile etc)

Writing

I do a decent amount of blogging on Medium.
  • chunksofcode: In this publication, I write technical software development articles & tutorials.
  • timi's backpack: I love "gadgets" (smartphones, computers etc) and I enjoy reviewing them.
  • mensplainr: A few of my friends & I use this as a medium (ha!) to explain feminist ideology to our fellow (Nigerian) men in hopes that they'll listen and treat women better.

  • A friend (TMT) & I run a music newsletter called Dudukę.
  • I'm currently writing a graphic novel called Arodan.

Speaking

Misc

  • I love video games though I have less time for it these days. Last one I beat was God of War on PS4. It took me a year, lmao. My favourite game of all time is Year Walk.
  • I like to draw. I post my infrequent drawings on this instagram page.
  • I love reading fiction. Last book I read was Dune.
  • I share a lot of thoughts & news on my twitter.
