MEET NNMACHI JIDENMA

Our woman in tech is a diva! Before working at Facebook, Jidenma worked as a Global Business development Manager for PayPal. Prior to that, she worked at Google where she worked on Internet access initiatives in emerging markets to advance Google’s goals of expanding global connectivity.

Currently, Nmachi Jidenma works at Facebook as its Global Payments Partnerships Manager where she manages partnerships with financial services companies and develops new product initiatives at the intersection of payments, social networking, and advertising.

The reason I gave her the diva tag is because she is also the Founder of CPAfrica and has previously served as an Africa editor at the Next Web – an international tech news service based in the Netherlands.
All hail the diva!

There you have it, our very own Facebook gurus. I am sure if Mark Zuckerberg were a Nigerian, some of you would have said their parents probably knew him, hence the reason they got the job, but for once, I am so glad he isn’t.
