Hello everyone, have you heard about the WEMA Bank hackathon? If you have, that is great, but if you haven’t do not be troubled as we got you covered.
The WEMA Bank hackathon is a competition organized by the bank to discover and develop talents in the IT industry.
Are you interested in IT? Are you a developer? Do you have the ability to think outside the box? Then this is for you. Check out more details below.
In 2017, Wema Bank flipped the script on the traditional banking experience with ALAT, Nigeria’s first and only fully digital bank. Built by a team of indigenous developers, ALAT is proof that we can hack our way to a better future.
This year, the bank is switching things up with Hackaholics, Wema Bank’s first hackathon, and everyone is welcome.
Hackaholics is a radical gathering of developers, web designers and creative thinkers interested in building products and developing solutions to improve financial services and other sectors of Nigerian life. We are particularly excited about potential innovations in personal finance, big data, retail banking, mobile payments, risk management, currency and stock trading, investment, regulatory compliance as well as health and the environment.
