1. Can you give us a few words about yourself?
My name is Johnson Awah Alfred, outside the tech world I am referred to as Fred, and within as codemon. I am from the southern part of Nigeria, a student and a software engineer with over 4 years of experience, I lead, facilitate and mentor various communities in and around campus one of which is the Developer student Club, an affiliate of Google. I developed my PHP framework months ago, called this one ligerphp (www.github.com/ligerphp).
2. What do you like most about working remotely?
As a remote developer, I like the freedom associated with it, I get to stay anywhere I wish to, so far as I am able to deliver, also I really do not need to spend much money any longer on transport, as I will if it was not a remote job.
3. Why did you decide to go remote?
I figured out that working from home would be very much comfortable and pocket-friendly unlike when I get a job that requires me leaving my house every morning and returning back home, this was never going to work as I am a student, working remotely gave me the power to choose my working hours, with that I get to plan both my academics and work just as it should be.
4. How did you find your current role?
I got my current job role as a front end engineer while applying for different roles that match my skill set from LinkedIn Jobs.
5. What are your main skills?
6. What kind of companies do you like to work for?
I really don't have any preference though, but definitely, a company that cares about its staff, a fin-tech company works fine too.
